The 5 P's to Job Search Success

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.

    "Working for the government at any level, whether it is federal, state, or local will lead to an enriching and fulfilling career."

    "Wil" lead to an enriching and fulfilling career? How about "may", instead, to be more realistic and less sounding like a typiacal government job ad?l

    "People don’t work in government for the money. They do it to help their community and fellow citizen."

    Sure, try to hire people for government jobs without paying and see how many would apply. And, of course, money isn't the only incentive. So are the great benefits and lots of federal holidays! If money isn't supposed to be important for government workers, then why are they up in arms theses days with their pay freeze or reduction proposed by the Congress?

    How old is this article, anyway, and why doesn't GovCentral post the dates on their articles? Why does GovCentral keep reposting old, outdated articles that may have outlived their usefulness? Finally, how about GovCentral doing some real investigation into the problems and misdeeds by the federal agencies in their hiring practices and write on those, instead of always sounding like the propaganda machine for the government? Seriously!

    Interesting that you get manipulated into looking at an ad for University of Phoenix...not accredited by the US Dept of Education. Hey GovCentral, how 'bout just taking to me the content I'm interested in looking at?

    I am a Senior Test Engineer looking for a position at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
    I have over 20 years of experience in Testing and over 10 in Test Engineering.
    I have experience with integration testing, component testing, writing Test Plans.
    I have a resume on Monster, if you are interested in looking at it. I can send it directly.
    The Government site seems to want professional engineers and it is hard to get thru the system to have them look at my experience and skills. I have worked directly for the government as a contractor.
