    In aquiring a BBA with a perfect 4.0 GPA, I thought I would never have to worry about finding a job. However, now, I find myself being told over and over again, "if I hire you, you will leave at the first opportunity you get for a higher paying job" - When I work, I work hard. Whether it it at work, school, and helping to run a NFP organization. I have been very creative in finding ways to fund projects and move people toward progress. I find myself struggling to find the path to one of these 70+ Government Careers? Any suggestions?
