Interest in federal jobs swells

Federal jobs are a hot commodity, according to the Office of Personnel Management.

Last month, OPM's employment Web site, at www.USAJobs.opm.gov, received more than 136 million hits by 2.3 million visitors.

And since Sept. 11, 13,500 retired federal employees have offered their services through the agency's e-mail address, at patriot@opm.gov.

Interest in federal government work started growing late last year. OPM reported 19 percent and 11 percent increases in Web visitors in November and December, respectively'up from 1.5 million visitors in October.

Other parts of the Web site are also receiving many hits. Studentjobs.gov, for instance, saw a 75 percent increase to 56,500 visitors last month.
