Some interesting tweets I recently read:

The government recently redesigned The Federal Register  

The Federal Register is the official daily publication for rules, proposed rules, and notices of Federal agencies and organizations, as well as executive orders and other presidential documents. It is updated daily by 6 a.m. and is published Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The website has been updated to give the public easier access to these daily publications.


The President’s SAVE Award

Thousands of Federal employees submitted their ideas for streamlining government and saving tax dollars. Trudy Givens from Portage, Wisconsin, who works for the Bureau of Prisons, was chosen the winner out of 18,000 ideas. She suggested that instead of automatically having a hard copy of the Federal Registry sent to her office daily, Fedreal employees should be able to opt-in for hard copy delivery. This would yield savings associated with printing and postage. The number of hard copies mailed was reduced from roughly 25,000 to 500 recipients.


The White House Teamed Up With Monster.com to answer questions and give advice to job seekers

The White House has turned to social media to get a feel for what aspects of the job market are of most concern to citizens. Job seekers can login to Monster’s Facebook Page where they can pose questions to the Obama Administration with regard to America’s employment climate. There are also a lot of helpful videos for those looking for employment.
