Listings highlight `plum' positions

If you think the transition to the second Clinton administration and its attendant personnel shuffling makes this a good time to try a career move check out the new "Policy and Supporting Positions" listing - better known as the "plum book."

This quadrennial summary of political and other noncompetitive appointments lists more than 8 000 jobs including more than 100 executive positions related to information technology. Few are vacant most are held by career federal employees.

The electronic version called FedList is available on the Office of Personnel Management's home page on the World Wide Web.
