  • The Book of U.S. Government Jobs: Where They Are

    • Author: Dennis V. Damp
    • Binding: Paperback
    • Price: $22.95

    This updated edition features the information you need to find and apply for government jobs. The author and editors have over 110 years of combined federal government service. Considering that federal employees earn an average annual compensation of $106,871, including pay and benefits, compared to just $53,288 in the private sector, the federal sector is an attractive option for job seekers.

    The federal government's new recruiting and retention programs are attracting applicants with lucrative incentives for current vacancies and for the many new jobs created by the new administration. Today federal agencies can pay off $60,000 of new hires student loans, negotiate starting salaries, and offer relocation allowances for critical vacancies.

    Readers will find an expanded application and resume chapter that takes readers step-by-step through a typical job announcement and instructs readers on how to write a professional federal style resume and Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) statements. Resume samples, compiled by the author and Kathryn Kraemer Troutman, the author of Federal Resume Guidebook, are included to guide job seekers through the often confusing application process.

    Considerable improvements have recently been implemented to the archaic Civil Service examination process. Uncle Sam has finally dropped most general and administrative written entrance examinations and substituted an Occupational Questionnaire and/or Self Certification in most cases. New applicants for certain occupations may still be required to take written tests, but most agencies, other than the U.S. Postal Service, forgo testing and opt to use Occupational Questionnaires.

    Agencies are still evolving since the September 11 attacks and the massive reorganization that established the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS was established to consolidate law enforcement and security functions, and 22 agencies transferred significant operational functions and personnel to Homeland Security since its inception.

    The impact of this reorganization and the increased security requirements in all agencies have changed government demographics. An entire chapter is devoted to law enforcement and DHS careers and the many job opportunities that are now available in the government's third largest agency. DHS employs more than 154,000 workers in hundreds of occupations.

    Lucrative recruitment incentives are now offered, programs such as the Veterans Recruitment Appointment (VRA) were revised, and the student hiring program was reorganized under the eScholar program. This edition added information on the Senior Executive Service (SES), and all these changes expanded the new 10th edition to 352 pages.

    The federal governmen's total civilian workforce now exceeds 2,800,000 and approximately 50 percent of the federal workforce is currently eligible for either early or regular retirement. This is creating significant employment opportunities for anyone interested in working for Uncle Sam. Over 1.3 million jobs will need to be filled as the baby boomers opt to leave government service.

    This Tenth Edition of The Book of U.S. Government Jobs will help job seekers land high-paying, benefit-loaded, and secure government jobs. If you are looking for a position with good pay and excellent benefits, explore the high-paying and secure federal job market. The average salary now exceeds $70,000 , and you can work at thousands of stateside and overseas locations. Use this book's resources, including the Job Hunter's Checklist in Appendix A, to begin your personal job search.. Great book for warehouse jobs seekers.

    Have you ever wondered why you didn't get a job offer after an important interview?

    People interviewing for jobs today often fail because they are using yesterday's strategies. They haven’t realized that the best employers have changed the way interviews are done, and it now takes a different strategy to succeed. Competency-Based Interviews shows today's candidates a new, more targeted way to prepare for the tough interviews based on the competencies that the most sophisticated employers are looking for.

    Competency-Based Interviews offers you a new and more effective way to handle the tough new interviews so that you will emphasize the knowledge, skills and abilities that you have and that employers need. Most sophisticated U.S. and international employers are using competency-based systems to recruit, interview and select employees. Corporations such as American Express, Anheuser Busch, BP, Coca-Cola, Energizer, Federal Express, IBM, and Pfizer are all looking for specific competencies.

    Preparing for a competency-based interview will give you the strategy you need to:

    • Be selected for the most competitive positions.
    • Win the best job at a new organization.
    • Get a great first job or internship.
    • Be chosen for that critical promotion in your current organization.
    • Take control of your career path.
    • Increase your salary.
    • Get more interesting assignments and more interesting work

    Most interviewees don't know how to be successful when they are being interviewed by an organization looking for key competencies. Few candidates answer questions so they demonstrate their own critical competencies. Competency-Based Interviews will teach you what you need to master this tough new interview style and give the interviewers the answers that will win you the job..

In this brilliant new study, Carol Newsom illuminates the relation between the aesthetic forms of the book and the claims made by its various characters.

  • Perks or Promotion (Perfect Phrases Series)

    • Author: Dennis V. Damp
    • Binding: Paperback
    • Price: $27.95

    In the completely revised 11th edition (the first book to feature new hiring reforms implemented by President Obama), Damp—with 35+ years federal service—clearly lays out everything a job seeker needs to locate, apply for, and land a lucrative federal job. The helpful information includes a special resume writing guide (federal-style resumes are different than a standard resume), tips on achieving higher ratings, and advice on getting your foot in the door. The abundant resources feature easy-to-follow checklists, an agency directory, skills index, and networking resources.

     

    Everyone agrees that the tough job market is not likely to ease any time soon. That is why job seekers looking for high-paying and benefit-loaded jobs should look seriously at the possibility of federal employment.

     

    Here are a few of the reasons why:

     

    ·         Half of the federal work force is eligible for early or regular retirement

    ·         The average annual salary for all federal employees is $81,258

    ·         Opportunities exist for those who are willing to seek them out

    ·         Federal employment exceeds 2.8 million; 2% of the nation’s total employment

     

    There are thousands of job vacancies advertised daily in the federal job market regardless of proposed federal downsizing initiatives. Many retirements are projected as each day for the next 19 years 10,000 baby boomers turn age 65! Hiring will be driven by these retirements along with the need to staff over 100 new agencies and regulatory organizations due to the healthcare and banking legislation passed in 2010.

     

    Why are federal jobs so appealing? For starters, the average annual federal worker’s compensation — pay plus benefits — is $123,049 compared to just $61,051 for the private sector. New hires for hard-to-fill positions may be eligible to receive student loan payoff assistance, relocation help and cash incentives. Uncle Sam’s liberal benefit package far exceeds what the average private sector company offers including:

     

    ·         13 days paid sick leave each and every year,

    ·         up to 5 weeks vacation,

    ·         10 paid holidays,

    ·         health and life insurance, and 

    ·         a fixed annuity retirement package plus a 5% IRA employer contribution match

     

    This new edition offers job seekers all of the tools necessary to land a high paying civil service job. Discover where the jobs are, what jobs are available, and how to complete a professional federal style resume. Barbara Adams, President and CEO of CareerPro Global, Inc. (CPG) contributed the resume samples for this new edition. The resume guide takes readers step-by-step through the resume process showing applicants how to tailor their resume to the job announcement to achieve “Best Qualified” status.  

     

    This totally revised and updated edition includes numerous resources for exploring careers and locating job vacancies nationwide and overseas. The 11th edition is totally updated throughout and interspersed with the author’s and editors personal perspectives gained from a combined 122 years of government service. Jobs will be available at thousands of locations and in hundreds of occupations, entry level to professional. Few employers can match the wide range of career opportunities and job security that government offers.

     

    Anyone seeking gainful employment in a dynamic environment with endless opportunities should explore working for Uncle Sam. This book has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, U.S. News and World Report, The Washington Post, United Press International, The Daily Herald, on CNN’s Your Money Show, and in Library Journal as “One of the most checked out books at libraries.”
