I followed the advice given by the author (resume and cover letter), I
got referred. However, two months after receiving the "cert"
letter, I heard nothing and could not find out my application status
(the contact person claimed that she belonged to "global
recruiting" and knew nothing about the job or the hiring manager).
In the book, the author gave an impression that once you got
"cert" you 'd get interview (that's the biggest, unspoken
lie), the reality is that only those who had a "backdoor" (or
put in a nice phrase: "networking") would get calls----these
people are way, way less qualified(in some case absolutely unqualified).
There is no way one can fight this corrupted culture and practice in
Fed. One has to somehow hope to get lucky or one's well-written resume
will surely be ignored (the "cert" is the only
"reward" they bestow you!) and unanswered. If the author has
a way to clean up Fed corruption, she deserves a medal! But I think that
she's just "one of them", and her goal is to hook you up and
make money (she charges $40/question on her website----if she sincerely
wants to help, she should advertise " no pay until you get the
job")---so my conclusion: the book is well-written, but it does not
help you at all---it is a part of the scam!
