TheCapitol.Net Introduces Derrick Dortch’s Career Development Audio Courses

According to the U.S. Office of Personal Management, 300,000 federal employees will be eligible to retire by 2010. With the rising number of retirees, TheCapitol.Net has teamed up with Derrick Dortch in developing audio courses that help professionals navigate the Washington, DC job search process.

"As one of the biggest employers in the nation, the federal government is always hiring. This means it’s always a good time to look for a federal job,” said Derrick Dortch, President of the Diversa Group, a consulting company specializing in career, entrepreneurship, leadership and organizational consulting, development & training. “Thousands of federal workers will retire by 2014. Combined with regular hiring needs of the government, thousands of federal jobs will be available for job seekers interested in government service."

Dortch’s audio courses, How to Find a Job in Washington DC, How to Obtain a Security Clearance from the U.S. Federal Government and How to Get a Job with the U.S. Federal Government, can help prepare aspiring federal employees for their first professional jobs in the DC area. In addition to his work at The Diversa Group, Dortch also hosts a monthly online career program for The Washington Post and is a regular weekly host for Fed Access with Derrick T. Dortch on Federal News Radio 1500 A.M.

For the recent college graduate, How to Find a Job in Washington, DC includes essential lessons such as how to build a Washington network, popular online websites to look for positions, and how to make a lasting impression in the interview process, both over the phone and in person. Also, Dortch discusses the realities of the job search and interview process.

When looking for a job within the federal government, Dortch’s course, How to Get a Job with the U.S. Federal Government explains how to develop a government job search strategy, match yourself with the right agencies and positions, effectively target positions, and develop federal resumes and KSAs to increase your chances of being offered a job.

In How to Obtain a Security Clearance from the U.S. Federal Government, Dortch provides a comprehensive guide to the different types of security clearances, how to obtain a security clearance, and various factors considered in the clearance process.
