Govloop.com  provides many resources for government workers, veterans, and retirees.

From their about page:

GovLoop’s mission is simple: connect government to improve government. We aim to inspire public sector professionals to better service by acting as the knowledge network for government.

GovLoop serves a community of more than 280,000 government leaders by helping them to foster collaboration, learn from each other, solve problems and advance in their government careers.

We do this through a variety of mechanisms, including:

  • In-depth editorial reporting and research about topics at the intersection of management and technology
  • News coverage of issues and events that are pertinent to the government community
  • Weekly online trainings and self-paced courses
  • Speaking engagements
  • Leadership programs, and more

GovLoop also works with top industry partners, such as ESRI, HP, Microsoft and IBM, to provide resources and tools, such as infographics, market trend reports and educational events for public-sector professionals.

They offer downloads such as Your Guide to Veterans Resources.

They also offer quizzes (such as how many state flags do you know), free online classes, articles,  periodic invitations to become a featured blogger, a section on jobs which includes job openings, a perdiem calculator and salary calculator, career advice, and many IT resources.  It’s free and definitely worth taking a look at.
