Federal contractor job board will look for biz dev help

Exfederal, an online résumé database and job board for contractors with government experience, will be looking to hire someone to help with business development in the next few months. Ginger Groeber, CEO of Exfederal, cofounded the company, which is based in Fairfax, Va., eight months ago.
Groeber brings 26 years of experience in working with the federal government to her business. After serving as deputy undersecretary of defense for civilian personnel policy in the Department of Defense, Groeber took her skills to the private sector and served as a vice president at Lockheed Martin. She says that experience gives her insight into the contracting market, and that creating Exfederal was a necessity.
"It was very tough to find people that had government experience, and it was tough for people with military, government or contracting experience to find jobs," Groeber explains. "They know their own company, but they don't know what else is out there."
On Exfederal, contractors can post their resumés for free. She estimates that there are 2,500 resumes on the site. Companies that are looking to hire can either pay to search the resumes or pay to post a job on Exfederal. Prices to search or post begin at $199 for one search or one 30-day posting.
Groeber says that about 30 companies are using Exfederal. All of the resumés received by the platform are put into the same proprietary system. "We get about five to ten [résumés] a day," she says. "[Putting them] in the same format makes them extremely searchable. Our system does a first screening for recruiters." Companies can search for specific agency experience, level of security clearance and functional area, as well as more traditional parameters, such as whether a contractor is willing to travel. 
Going forward, Exfederal is going to continue to build its usage base and work on creative marketing. "Next week we'll be outside metro stops doing street-level campaigning," Groeber says. "We also started a blog about month and a half ago. We want to use the blog to help people find contracting jobs and [to keep people apprised of] what's going on in the Gov-Con world."
