Most jobs on USAjobs are advertized both as Internal (current federal employees) and External (non federal employees).  I forwarded the notice I received and did not notice it did not include both announcements.  In the future, if an announcement says "Current federal employees" and you do not see the External announcement use the USAjobs search tool and look that job title or search by key words and location and you will see the External announcement.  Here are direct links to both.

The vacancy announcement for the new Project Coordination Specialist is out on USA JOBS.  Please forward this to others you know that may be interested in applying.  Please take a look at the announcement to get a feel for the duties of the position.

External (non federal employees):

Internal (current federal employees only):

Tom & Robin,

Thanks for the job posting and notification. Though after spending an hour to set up a usajobs.gov<http://usajobs.gov> profile and answering all the questions, I was told by the system that I don't qualify, as the position is only open to current federal employees and veterans, and I have no hiring preference. Even with a masters degree in Public Adminstration, B.S. in Natural Resources Planning, and experience working as a planner on Trinity River restoration for Trinity County.

Just how does one get their foot in the door with the federal government? It's a shame really, as qualified applicants, such as myself who is knowledgeable about the program, history, and people involved, just can't get past the system. In this economic climate, people like me are really in need of employment, especially meaningful work, and looking for opportunity that is closed off to the general public is disheartening. Good luck on filling this position though!
