  • They like formal education, military veterans and hiring internally. If you can get into any position you can always try to work your way up. Also if you're in a position to take a little risk, try for a temporary or seasonal position. They usually try to find another job for you or get more funding for the one you have once your term is up.

  • You need to start by taking a civil service exam.

  • Take the civil service exams, and make friends with existing government workers!! NEPOTISM runs rampant within government agencies/divisions!! It's more WHO you know or are related to, that WHAT you know!!
