The Federal government is not in a hiring freeze. It has slowed down, but they are still filing positions. I ended up a GS 12 with DCMA. If it's not too bold to ask, can you send me a copy of your FED resume EOD? I spent a lot of time and energy perfecting mine, and may be able to help you proof yours. I can also give you a copy of mine.I ended up being referred on a lot of applications. I did this without the ten point preference so I think I have a pretty good grasp on what they want.That sucks.. My Sister In-Law is a GS14 for the VA... she was telling me the VA is still very much hiring. I have received some calls for EOD work with the TSA... however there are 100's of EOD Techs competing for the same job.. and honestly, I am not wanting to go back into that job field anymore. I think it is just sad that a Veteran with a degree and 8+ years of leadership experience, cant seem to get a government job due to either the length in application processing or the bureaucratic BS they have to go through (i.e. Certain of number of Credits in college, in a certain field of study) Silly.
I know it is completely stupid how long the process takes, but it is what it is. Just keep trying. PM me and I will give you my email address.
