Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Certified career transition coaches who advise federal employees, Ruck and Taylor emphasize employment stability, comprehensive benefits, and meaningful public service as reasons to consider a job within the federal government. In this career guide, they outline opportunities available, delineate how to match particular skills and competencies to individual federal agencies, and how to navigate the federal hiring process. The authors provide valuable information and insight about federal government employment as well as tools for developing career goals. Targeted information about individual agencies, the federal government as an employer, and worksheets to evaluate potential career fit distinguish this guide from similar titles. Sections on the application and interview processes, emphasizing potential situations and questions, will prove particularly helpful as well. VERDICT Highly recommended for the college student doing career planning or the job seeker in the midst of career change, this guide demystifies the process of seeking federal employment.—Jane Scott, George Fox Univ. Lib., Newberg, OR
