Former GS and contractor here - what pathway are you applying under? The trick is to be able to apply under one of the preferences that will give you an advantage i.e military spouse, displaced federal employee, veteran. Otherwise, you have to apply for a position that’s open to the public and you are at the very bottom of that pool. It doesn’t matter how qualified you are if the next person is just as qualified AND has a preference above yours. The higher the grade, the more difficult it is

Hi thanks for the reply, I am applying for GS5 for regulatory assistant at the army corps of engineers in Los Angeles

I’m on my third fed agency. The first two were part of DoD and i dont really care for it. If you have been in private sector a long time it may be a shocking change to see how feds handle things in comparison.

uplifting

Thank you I appreciate it

Hello, anyone can put in a referral for OW Digital division?

Has anyone else had a mentor (assigned to them by the Company) who seemed to have it out for you? I mean downright sabotage to make you look bad left and right. I didn’t realize it at first. She was fake friendly, but she was discrete too. Some of the executives thought she was amazing, but I had to clean up her work all the time. She wasn’t above me either on the chain of command. Later I found out she had tried for the exec assistant role and they didn’t choose her, they wanted me instead.

How would you explain in interviews that your work was the level of a specialist/director even though your job title was that of a coordinator?

I am an young professional trying to understand how to navigate this field! Appreciate anyone's comments :)

Why is it recommended you give a company 2 weeks notice when you are leaving but at the same time, when they are laying you off/firing you, they typically do it on the spot. I have known countless people layed off/fired on the spot over the years (especially after busy season) and everyone else when they leave give 2 week notice. Why should we relinquish power to corporations? Corporations really don't care about us. They pretend they do.
