    @Chuchlisa65. It really depends on the hiring manager, but keep applying for jobs until you get a call-back.

    frieselr, I'm in the same boat. I spent 20 years as an ATO (anti-terrorism officer) and Security Police Academy Instructor and because of my qualifications and now age I don't even get looked at. Makes one wonder if Homeland Security is just a pacifier. Hell, we wouldn't want someone who knows what their doing out there on the front lines defending our country.

    Thank you for the article. Are there articles that address entry level jobs for candidates who have never had a government job? Is there a website for those that want to learn more about how to apply when you do not understand the qualifications needed? Or even an article about any to these topics? Thanks!!!!!

    Hi, I am 64 years old, athletic, I am state of florida licensed in three categories and I am not able to get a job? Do you think it is age discrimination. I know the Government admitedly does age discrimination but Surely there is some place for me in the security field. I am also state rated in semi-auto, pistol,and shotgun. I need to work to pay my bills.

    I've got a hearing disability. It seems I need to find out what a "certification eligibility" letter is.

    Some positions may fall under the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Retirement program. Of which you cannot be over 37 to be appointed. Also, it's the way your resume is reflected against the JOA. If the agency uses an automated system, it's looking for key words and phrases. If it doesn't find them, you're not qualified. I have experienced this several times with several agencies.
