Watercooler Quote of the Day: 11/17/09 (Talk Nerdy to Me?)

“There are incentives, and then there are incentives”

– Jim McDermott, chief human capital officer of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, on one of the NRC’s recruitment strategies: offering a dating service to help single nuclear engineers meet one another (which “has so far resulted in about eight or nine weddings”).

    The NRC doesn’t have a dating service. That is a mis-characterization.

    However, the NRC is indeed full of young, smart, successful, talented, service-oriented, and (yes) single engineers. Given that situation, some romances do happen.

    The NRC is obviously an agency where people are also allowed to show they have a sense of humor.

    Just one more reason the NRC is the best place to work in the federal government!
