Helping Others to Make a Difference in the World Through Federal Careers

Through Federal Career Connection (FCC), a committed group of public servants, workforce development specialists, hiring managers, teachers, and other community members teamed up to assist those who hope to find their professional calling in public, national, military, or other federal services.

Who we are

A Community in Service

This effort was especially important during the nation's difficult period of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Through their labor of love and compassion, they provided job seekers with the best federal employment resources that fit their needs.

These exceptional individuals serve as living examples of what it means to be community servants and those in government serving citizens. Their combined experience and tacit knowledge in workforce development and human resources offered job seekers invaluable advice and tactics for looking for and applying to fulfilling jobs within the federal government.

The achievements described below illustrate their enormous impact on helping individuals discover their career calling in federal, military, public, or other services.

OUR STORY

The History of FCC

Founded by Alex Harrington in 2011, FCC started as a community service project. He designed this project originally to meet the Global Career Development Facilitator program's credentialing requirements. He called it Federal Career Connection, and it offered facilitator-led workshops that provided job searchers with the knowledge to effectively navigate the intricacies of looking for, applying, and interviewing for positions in the federal government. These sessions included improving employability skills, creating strong applications for federal jobs, and making the most of the USAJOBS website.

In 2012, with the help of committed volunteers, Alex incorporated FCC into the outreach job ministry program Career Network Ministry. Under FCC, Alex held many workshops that benefited many people in honing their federal job search tactics.  

In early 2019, Alex faced a significant health challenge and had to step back on his role in leading the workshops due to cancer treatment. Remarkably, a committed group of volunteers took over and continued the valuable work he had started.  By 2021, FCC had transformed into a non-profit educational organization that offered those in career transition the best advice and methods for seeking and pursuing rewarding jobs in the military, public, and national services.  

OUR FUTURE
