Looking for opportunities within the government for about 12 years

I have been applying for federal government jobs for about 12 years on and off, and within that 12 years I have not been offered not one job. I have worked very hard to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems and now I’m finishing up my last semester in Health Systems Management for my Master’s degree. I have even went so far as to pay someone to polish up my resume for employment with the federal government. Still reject after reject, what am I doing wrong? I know I am more than qualified to work with the federal government. It’s been a life long dream of mine. However, I am happy to say that I have been nominated for the Presidential Management Fellowship program with the government. I intend to keep pressing forward and hoping that one day soon I will be working for the Federal Government in some capacity. Keep your fingers crossed!!!

Its hard to beleive 12 years. What series were you appling for? Just asking because I have known people who have apply one to three times and got in through that magical door. I been working for DOD going on 15 years now. I apply twice and got in. What I did was choose a series and grade that was under staff. Back then I found this info on the OPM site. Not sure where that data is now. Also I have a BS in Information System too. Don’t work in the IT field either. I am working in the series 0343, Management and Program Analyst. You have to choose the right series and grade to start off with.
