I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time (More than 10 years)
Outstanding opportunities. Significant responsibility beginning at a very junior level.
Frequent moves are very disruptive.
Advice to Management
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at US Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard follows a pretty set process, which includes an interview panel. The panel is required to complete form CG-5527, which addresses Performance of Duties, Communications Skills, Leadership Skills, and Personal and Professional Qualities. This is later transmitted to headquarters for evaluation, along with the applicants resume.
