Aside

Ah, the government, they sure have a way with words

I LOLed when I got a notification of being disqualified for a fed job I applied for based in Colorado. I wasn’t dismissed for lack of qualification, what happened was a displaced federal worker (meaning someone who got laid off) also applied for the same job, so he got priority. So basically, the feds lay people off, and then rehire them, and then proceed to call this a federal reduction in the workforce.

I want to work some place where even if I get laid off I still have a job. Now THAT’S job security!

    Sorry you didn’t get the job. Just keep at it, and keep your head up. Persistence pays off – and sometimes in ways you can’t even imagine. Keep your eyes set on Colorado and put out that intention. :) I will think Colorado thoughts for you, as well.

      Thanks Ashli, I don’t want to overly focus on Colorado too much, but it is one of my target states to move to. For all I know though I might wind up rounding cattle in Wyoming instead and be just as happy, LOL.
