Another great reason to choose a career in the federal government. Commit to being a U.S. civil servant for the long haul. It is hard but worth it.

Also, FEDWeek is offering a webinar on “Your Federal Resume & USAJOBS Application Strategies for Success” which is scheduled to be held on August 28th. If you ever had USA Jobs nightmares, you should consider attending this session. Ir might help.

There is a real problem in this country.  People really need federal employees on the job and working productively and efficiently for America but these same people don’t understand why.

Many federal employees are scheduled to retire over the next few years.  We have to encourage young people to  become civil servants.  This an honorable career and a worthwhile service to our communities.

Here’s a link that discusses this issue along with a survey of some federal workers.
