This session is an overview of the political appointments process from former officials responsible for Presidential appointments. This session will answer all of your basic questions. We will cover the Transition personnel process and Presidential Personnel process and how they differ. We will also discuss which jobs are Senate-confirmed and what special considerations go into filling those positions. The entire timeline will be discussed, including: indicating your interest, how to improve your chances of nomination, the vetting process, the Senate confirmation process, and what happens after you are confirmed.
During this session, we were not able to get to all of the important questions raised in the Q&A. After you finish watching the webinar below, please check out our webpage of follow-up Notes and Q&A.
