New federal contracting jobs site launches

Website aims to connect recent feds with companies.

Exfederal.com, a new jobs site for former federal workers, formally launched Wednesday.

The site was created by Ginger Groeber, a former human resources officer in the Defense Department and at Lockheed Martin Corp. The site’s goal is to connect companies seeking to hire contract workers with former feds searching for a job. Until Wednesday, the site was in beta testing, allowing only a handful of companies to use its database.

Vice President of Product Development Emily Coates said Exfederal.com was excited for the launch and looking to transform the way firms hire federal workers.

“I think we've built something that can change the landscape of government contract hiring and placement,” Coates said in an email to Government Executive.

Exfederal.com is breaking into a competitive federal jobs market that includes services such as ClearanceJobs and others.
