HARRISBURG, PA — Governor Tom Wolf this week announced that, for the first time ever, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was named one of the best employers in the nation for new graduates in a survey conducted by Forbes and market research company Statista.

“Commonwealth employees do hard work every day to serve their fellow Pennsylvanians, and I am proud to work alongside them,” said Governor Wolf. “To bring the best and brightest to public service, it is important that we continue to modernize our approach to work to keep pace with the private sector and other public employers. Right now, agencies under my jurisdiction are implementing a new telework policy that will help us to better attract and retain employees, while continuing to provide first-class service to the public. We will continue to evaluate the needs of our employees and the Pennsylvanians they serve to ensure our commonwealth lives up to its role as a leading public sector employer.”

“By modernizing the hiring process, creating pathways from college to career and being more competitive in the job market, the Wolf administration has orchestrated a remarkable turnaround in the way young professionals perceive state government,” said Secretary of Administration Michael Newsome. “Seven years ago, we had college students telling us they would only apply for a state job if they were desperate. Today, we are being ranked nationally as an employer of choice for a new generation of workers.”
