Letter to the editor

I have worked in civil service for 30 years as a GS-332 and GS-335. I have tried all these years to cross over to GS-334 and went to all the necessary computer classes.

You must have to know someone to get into this field, because I have tried. I'm just a GS-335-09 now, but would go to a GS-05 in a heartbeat for a GS-334 training program. (They'll accept a GS-05 as a GS-334).

And I'd go wherever the government sends me.
