Becky Brillion will host this informative workshop.  For those interested in working for the government, the outlook is still strong, pay is still good, and stability is still characteristic.  In fact, most positions are increasing in pay, with most retirement targets still on track, opening positions on a steady schedule. Applying for a federal job is different than applying for a private sector job and there is a lot to learn about pay scales, benefits, and job descriptions. Learn the differences and gain insight through this seminar. Application and hiring protocol of the federal system is also changing and it’s important to understand it in order to be successful.   

Topics covered in the presentation include:

ž  Fundamental differences between the private and federal sector. 

ž  Reading and understanding vacancy announcements.

ž  Pay grades and promotion scales within the federal sector.

ž  Tailor your resume to match government hiring requirements

ž  Identify open positions

ž  Navigate the process
