Letter: Still trying to get an interview

Regarding "Government is hiring more senior-level workers from outside": I have to concur with other readers who write that they have consistently applied for senior positions and have yet to be asked for an interview.

I’ve got highly marketable skills and am constantly asked to consider new positions within industry. My salary and my responsibilities keep rising as a result of my hard work and skill. I’m now at an executive level in industry, but what I really wanted was to be at an executive level within government.  

Like the other readers, I’ve been applying for the past three years, and I’ve yet to be asked for an interview. And usually I have nothing to indicate that they received or reviewed my application and résumé.
