So Much Value-Added Information Here Aug 26, 2008
The reader gets so much value-added information here. I have to agree with the ***** Five Star Review praise here. For insight into the city and state government job business, establishment America, what your city and state government is hiring for and doing - the small wheels that make the clock turn, carry out the garbage, drive the school buses, educate the kids, do all that contracting that spends our money, and the computing that delivers services - I recommend this book. With the value-added charts on city and state and federal job titles and salaries you are in business to compare and not despair of finding out "how do I get a government job." This is not just another Federal ho hum job book. Obviously an insider - someone inside government - has written this with a view to the student and jobseeker who needs to learn what makes city, state and federal government agencies and departments tick - and why you want one of these establishment jobs.
Slipshod Job Jul 23, 2008
Sparse, incomplete info. If you are interested in city or state jobs, this is useless. The disabilities section is a joke. 10 minutes using Google will give you much more info than this. Appears hastily put together to soak folks on the internet. Do not buy.
Excellent Resource! Feb 17, 2008
I would like to say thank you for writing such a useful book. Besides covering jobs in States, Cities and Federal government, it includes so much current information. Using this guidebook and the charts probably saved me half as much time as I'd have otherwise spent in going about this process. I see there are lots of opportunities for me in State, City and Federal government. Since I don't live in the Washington D.C. area, I'll be going for the State and City jobs as well as Federal in my area. This book has lots of good guidance for developing KSA & resume content, including listing tech skills with the tech skills examples. It gives some excellent explanation about different "grade" levels. The salaries, 5-year salary projections and estimated pensions charts are awesome! The explanation about civil service and the pension figures it shows for each title is very exciting. This is all laid out so well that I am mid-way into my applications.
Brings a lot to the table Feb 13, 2008
I have enjoyed this book, as well as finding it helpful. It brings a lot to the table. It covers how to get State & City jobs, as well as Federal jobs. This provides a scope. It covers job titles - with salaries, 5-year salary projections and estimated pensions for U.S. Federal, State and City jobs. The Charts are terrific. The charts are helping me look at where to position myself. The book also puts the steps, 1-2-3 right in front of me, to make the application and write the resume or KSA. It shows how to write the KSA. I don't have to sleuth around or spend extended time navigating the websites to figure things out. It explained civil service to me, in a historic and practical sense. The explanation, plus the salary charts, let me see why people talk about government jobs being good jobs, especially in tough economic times. I got a lot of insight from the section on high tech in government and how the technology has changed things affecting government jobs and processes. The book gives a bonus with the Tech Skills Chart, that I'll be using to help me with the tech skills part of my applications.
