I'm interested in getting into the federal government for a long term position. Over the years, I've applied for open positions via the USAJobs website. Trouble is, I never even get a confirmation that my information has been received, let alone ever hear back as to how I ranked or scored for positions.
Am I missing something? How can I get into the Federal Government? Would it be benficial to get into a state job beforehand?
If anyone who's gotten at job at the Fed in the last few years could tell how they did it, I would certainly appreciate it.
