Looking for a New Sport That Pays Well? Consider the Game of Federal Job Search.
Troutman, Kathryn Kraemer
This paper compares searching for a Federal Job to taking up a new sport. Becoming good at a sport takes lessons and coaching, study of the rules, practice, investment in equipment and special clothes, time to play, scheduling, and ongoing interest with friend who enjoy the same sport. An Expert Player/Jobseeker in the Federal Job Search System takes all of the above--research, study, practice or writing, investment in time and play/applications, scheduling, and ongoing follow-up with the players--the Human Resources professionals and networking with government workers and supervisors. It takes perseverance, drive, resourcefulness and determination. The author highlights how he helps his clients who are unemployed prepare for searching for a Federal job. (GCP)
