I’d have to say no. What do they do to recruite state/local government? (I’m a recruiter and I would be curious to know!)
Actually, I’m quite confused at the job announcements and how does one determine if they meet qualifications? The wording is oftentimes tricky, such as:
One year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the SV-F band or GS-9 level in the Federal service orGS-13: One (1) year specialized experience equivalent to at least the GS-12 level.
How is one to know what that means coming from outside federal service, and the position mentions it’s open to all citizens, not just internals ones?
