Why is Careers@Gov down for "scheduled maintenance"?

Planned maintenances keep Careers@Gov running smoothly to prevent disruption and/or unforeseen difficulties to our job seekers. Such down times are important to keep our servers and software secured against any new vulnerabilities that surface from time-to-time.

We keep maintenances to two (2) Sundays a month between 12 midnight to 8am and we will notify all job seekers and users of the Website prior to the maintenance date via the announcement banner of the Website.
