    How do you know what jobs you can do with what education. And if you passed a test and took an oath for a postal exam ten years ago can you still be elligible for more without an extra exam unless you up grade or get into another field.

    Hello out there. I've been trying to become a government employee for over 2 years and I'm finding it quit difficult because of my banking background history. If someone can give me some advice or help on what to do to change my career from one to the other I would greatly appreciate it.

    I like the steps this site and specifically that article provides. I think it correctly identifies successes and red flags to look for on the federal job quest.

    I haven't read it entirely. Does anyone know how I as a disabled individual can simplify the good federal job availability bank for those in my area(San Antonio or Austin)? What about part-time job availability as I continue?

    I have registered as instructed. The initial representation advises that this is a direct resource towards applying for a government job. Is this just another informational website? Where do I go from here?

    Not Gov't jobs that require a security clearance which a lot of Gov jobs do now days. I would suggest Dept. of Homeland Security maybe.
