A Nomination That Never Was
Seekers of federal jobs may be forgiven for puzzling over a front-page item in the tabloid Federal Jobs Digest for the week of July 22-Aug. 4.
Next to a dynamic photo of Elizabeth Warren, the founder of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau whom President Obama pointedly did not nominate as its permanent director, was an alluring headline reading "New Consumer Protection Bureau Hiring Steadily."
The photo caption helpfully refers to Warren as the bureau's "new head."
The editors of the 32-page compendium of agency job announcements and career tips appear to have taken a chance going to press just as Obama prepared to announce his nomination to the post -- current CFPB enforcement chief Richard Cordray.
