Senior Consultant

Can someone provide suggestions on how to crack a Fed job in Canada in CS ( Computer Science) domain. I was interviewed for CS-02 level for Veterans Affairs Canada and even cleared all the interview rounds. But then they say you have been added to a pool. If there is a position available they will reach out. Then why would they post a job if the position is not available, just wasting everyone's time, considering how ridiculous the application process is for fed jobs.
