Federal jobs + KSAs = LOATHE
It should be done in a way to make me highlight my experience and fit, but it’s asked ever so precisely so as to highlight my shortcomings as an entry-level, fresh college grad.
Yes, I realize I’m way behind on my 7DS series, I’ll try to rectify that this week. As many can attest to, job searching has emotional highs and lows. It’s been a month since I heard any positive feedback (or feedback at all). Needless to say, I’m in a low period that mkes filling out job apps hard enough, let alone trying to come up with some original blog material.
This is further complicated by the fact my favorite person (twin sister) is moving cross country in two weeks and no one will shut up about the move, their visit with my older sister (who graduated from her master’s a month after me, actually got a job, relocated, and is settled in her big-girl world with a fantastic new boyfriend- the only “downs” she’s had this year was getting her car totaled - she got a new one partially funded by my parents…the sinier, flashier version of what I’ve got, as she wasn’t at fault for the accident and could afford to spend money on a new car - and some bad reactions to bug bites. Seriously, that’s it.). I’m also bitter because said sister went through a horrible break-up a few years back and I was there for her, talking to her every night, listening to her cry, sending care packages and notes, and just generally checking in on her to make sure she was getting through. What has she done for me while I’ve been in my job search hell? She sent a $10 Starbucks card when my twin mentioned I was mad that she didn’t seem to care. She has yet to pick up the phone and ever call me….I think she’s called me between 2-5 times in the past year.
Not gonna lie, I kinda wish we could spread this wonderful, all life has to offer luck around in our family a bit. Or at least have my sibling realize how incredibly selfish she can be.
