But what about you newbies out there?

As readers may have noticed, we had a flood of comments responding to the question: “How did you get your federal job?”

And judging from the responses, it seems the path into a federal job may have become less direct—and the application process less straightforward—as time went on.

Job fair?

College recruiter?

USAJOBS?

Newspaper ad?

Other?

Which way worked for you?

Inquiring wannabe feds want to know!
