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!
