The 5 P's to Job Search Success

Persistence is just one way to being successful in your government job search.

Submitting a job application is an emotional investment. You spend hours reviewing your resume and KSA essay to make sure everything is worded correctly and accurately describes just how awesome you are. After you send it, you just know that the hiring manager is going to think your application is a masterpiece of accomplishment. Surely this application must be included into the literary canon with the likes of Hemingway and Salinger.

And then you wait…and wait…and wait.

You may want a career in government, but are frustrated with the process and the lack of feedback. You are losing motivation and want to give up.
