EEOC Launches Recruitment Drive to Hire Investigators

New York - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) New
York District Office (with offices in New York, Buffalo NY, Boston MA, Newark
NJ) announced today that it is hiring new investigators, as part of the
agency's recruitment drive nationwide. The district office is initiating this
effort to fill critical enforcement vacancies.

Investigators come from a broad range of educational disciplines. The New
York District Office is looking for candidates with the following skills and
abilities:

• Analyzing and synthesizing data;
• Thinking critically and creatively;
• Exercising good judgment in decision-making and problem solving;
• Organizing, planning and prioritizing work; and
• Writing clearly.

The New York District Office is also interested in candidates who are highly
motivated and are driven by internal traits such as self-confidence,
enthusiasm for righting wrongs, a helping spirit, a commitment to the ideal of
equal opportunity, competitiveness and a need for autonomy. Candidates
should also demonstrate an ability to balance these qualities with office
priorities.

Additionally, the New York District Office would like to hire individuals with
skills in foreign languages, such as Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Japanese,
Spanish and Vietnamese.

The agency's comprehensive recruitment campaign includes posting
investigator vacancies on USAJOBS at www.usajobs.gov, the Federal
Government's official jobs Web site, reaching out to a cross section of
stakeholder and community groups, and communicating with career services
professionals at colleges and universities, including institutions with high
minority enrollments to ensure a diverse pool of applicants. The EEOC will also
be making a strong effort to recruit individuals with disabilities.

The EEOC is the primary federal agency responsible for enforcing federal
statutes that prohibit employment discrimination based on race, color, sex,
religion, national origin, age, disability and retaliation. The Commission
enforces private sector statutes investigating allegations of employment
discrimination and where discrimination is found, obtaining remedies. The
Commission also litigates in Federal Court. Further information about the
Commission is available on its Web site at
www.eeoc.gov.
