Meaningful work, can make a difference.
Staffing levels are low, without a reduction in workload.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Office of Management and Budget (Washington, DC).
I declined to go to second interview--accepted another job. But interviewers wanted to know how my former experienced would fit at OMB. 3 interviewers-all women, white. I noticed that this place is NOT MULTICULTURALAT ALL! EXTREMELY low proportion of Blacks & Hispanics,high majority white women and men--odd considering this office should be a leader in representing the cultural diversity of U.S. agencies.
