The federal sector offers considerable employment opportunities. Currently 34% of the federal workforce (919,683 workers) are now eligible for retirement and within the next year 50% of the total workforce (1,352,475 workers) will be eligible for regular or early retirement. The biggest change in the federal sector in over 50 years is the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which consolidated the functions of 21 agencies to better protect America and to fight terrorism.
This book is based on the author's 35 years of government experience. Damp retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in 2004. "The Book of U.S. Government Jobs" provides an insider's first-hand view of what it takes to go from job hunter to hired employee, and everything in between to improve your chances of landing a high-paying government job. Damp's career included numerous management positions where he was responsible for recruiting, rating, interviewing, assessing, and hiring applicants.
