I support the transfer of employment to more federal positions, but as a veteran of the USN (11+ years) who has tried for several years to successfully gain government employment, contract companies are hiring.
I have applied to many government positions with NO LUCK for the past 4 years. My only other option to remain employed, vice waiting for a government answer or position is to take the contract position.
I maintain a security clearnance and have a competative resume…what is the government’s problem with hiring me? *shrug* I still endeavor to be a government employee, but feel like ‘insourcing’ is just another way of reshuffling current employees wtihout hiring any new ones?
