    Thanks for your words of encouragement. I actually just got back from a cleared job fair and left slightly frustrated. I thought with military experience, an active TS and a degree in Biology I would have left with more hits. I will take your advice keep pressing!

    Thanks for watching. I've found the parking spot analogy for job searching is the best and most realistic. It also explains why often individuals with average credentials obtain higher-paying or more substantial jobs over other, more qualified applicants.

    For the most part government jobs starting pay is terrible. You really need to be young to be able to afford the low pay. I was going to get a government job but at 30 years old with a family and a mortgage payment I couldn’t afford to make 35k per year that’s a 50% pay cut. I would have only made enough money to pay my mortgage and utility bills. I know the benifits are amazing but I just can’t afford to make such low money. It’s very weird how they pay people because a 18 year old with no experience will get paid the same money as me even though I have 12 years experience.

    Man. People put in a lot of work to get a position so they don't have to work.
