    To get a Fed job, it's who you know, not what you know. I was a Contractor with the Navy for 10 years, I saw my share of buddies being hired from contracting to Fed jobs. I would have liked to have gotten a Fed job but I wasn't one of the "buddies", there is alot of preferential treatment going on. If someone doesn't like you, you don't get in. You could have all the qualifictions for the job, too much power is given to those who shouldn't have it.

  • Misguided arguements about federal pay
    I agree with Kopenhayer that said arguments that federal pay is higher than the private sector are misguided, comparing "apples to oranges" because there are more minimum wage jobs outside of the federal workforce. That is not the only reason that the arguements are misguided. Federal employees are more educated than the general public also. I heard that Montgomery County Maryland, just outside of Wash. D.C. where many federal employees live, is the highest educated county in the country. Also, to fairly compare salaries bonuses need to be counted.
