The 2nd Federal Government Coding Challenge is NOW live! http://go.usa.gov/xmewH
The Federal Government must attract top information technology (IT) talent to modernize Federal IT systems and deliver the most secure and effective services to the American people. To recruit the best qualified IT talent, in the most timely and cost-effective manner, we need to transform the Federal IT hiring process.
The Chief Information Officer (CIO) Council has partnered with technology hiring experts for the 2nd interagency code challenge. Code challenges are used extensively in the private sector to source and pre-qualify IT talent, and they are viewed as an industry best practice.
The Core CS challenge is from June 10, 2019 to July 7, 2019! The Core CS challenge tests problem-solving skills, coding knowledge, and fundamentals using a coding language of the participant’s choice.
Please share the Code Challenge link with your Federal and non-Federal networks: https://www.cio.gov/
