There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
He later told me that it was an excellent source for seeking federal employment and has sent close to fifty resumes out as a result of using this book.
Taylor and Ruck have tackled the subject one step at a time, making it seem much more possible. It's still daunting - always will be - but this book shows the reader that it can be done. After all, all those feds got their jobs somehow.
You read stories about how many jobs will be created by workforce retirement and how many have been added by stimulus funds. But how to find them? This book gives a number of clues, heavily focusing on the internet.
I think one of the best things the authors have done is sprinkle their book with definitions. Government-speak is like no other.
Try these: intermittent,7(a) lender programs, noncompetitive appointment.
Confused? You can get definitions in this book. And I didn't even mention acronyms, all duly explained.
The list of websites, presumably up-to-date and waiting for your visit, will keep you clicking to unearth information and job possibilities. And you will definitely appreciate the sample resumes, both print and electronically formatted at the end of the book.
Congratulations to Karol Taylor and Janet Ruck for providing a low-cost resource book that no career center, library, or interested job applicant should be without.
