    This is a helpful article, except where I work there is an overwhelming amount of nepotism going on. It doesn’t matter HOW qualified you are. If you don’t know the right person or if you are NOT related to the right person it is nearly impossible to move up the ladder. The system has failed dramatically. Qualified people with college degrees are being passed up and this is not ethical!!!

    I was just contemplating KSAs for a job opening that I want to apply for and dreading the KSA requirement that appears to go with this application. I really liked this article and plan to print it in helping me design a form that will be good to accomplish this overwhelming task. However, I was disappointed that under the "Is there a form to completing a KSA?" (header) you suggested that you included a general form as a resource to use in this article and I do not find this attachment anywhere on this article as a link nor does this sentence provide an accurate locating fthis form. Where is this form? I would love to use it as my starting point to creating my KSA template!

    From my experience, even though they talk about no pre-selection, there is. Most often, and I have two friends currently going through this, the person with the best qualifications does not get picked. I think the KSA is the problem. If they miss a punctuation and the non disabled, non veteran crosses all the t's and dot's the I's they are picked. The system need fixing...
