The state of Montana is looking for a few good women and men to staff vacancies across more than 30 state agencies. Montana's department of human resources recently unified hiring processes for state civil servants, and it took the first steps toward automating employee application, selection, and hiring processes using Microsoft .NET software. Even though Montana's human resources revamp is still in its initial stages, state officials are already seeing the results: More applicants are showing interest in state jobs, and vacancies are being filled more quickly than before. Just as importantly, different agencies throughout the state can use the Windows Communication Foundation in the .NET Framework to capitalize on existing investments in various technology environments to access and interoperate with the new service.
