Introduction

Over the years, many myths have arisen about job opportunities with the federal government. Some of the most common are that the government hires only faceless bureaucrats to shuffle papers, federal jobs pay poorly, the jobs are unrewarding, and they’re all located in Washington, DC.

This book should shatter those myths forever.

Most important, this book should help you navigate the federal employment maze by clearly explaining what you need to know—from how to research a targeted federal job to how to make your application stand out. Although the federal government has made serious efforts in recent years to improve its hiring process, in too many cases applying for a job remains a bewildering, complex, and frustrating experience. Don’t be discouraged. In most cases, you’ll find that the extra effort required to apply for a federal job is well worth your time and patience. Think of your long-term goals and how your persistence will help you to meet them.
