working for the federal gov't
« on: September 17, 2008, 10:22:17 PM »
I am thinking about applying for an entry-level spot at some less competitive federal government agencies. I can't find stats on how many applications they get or how many entry-level positions they have.

Also, if possible, I would like to stay in Texas rather than going to DC, so a branch office would be ideal. Anybody have any ideas about which ones I should apply to? Also, when should I apply if I want to work right after graduation rather than sitting around and starving for months?

I am at a tier 2, top 15% of my class, secondary journal, an exec position on an organization board, and clerked in-house for a general counsel of a state school system.

Any advice would be awesome.
