Camaraderie, hours, equipment, professionalism, commitment.
Young, too many "new" programs. Keep it simple.
Advice to Management
Stop changing your name.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Washington, DC) in March 2015.
3-person panel interviews with your typical boiler place questions. Nothing that would really allow someone to assess the type of employee. Describe a project you've worked on. Describe your job duties blah blah blah.
It's the Fed Gov't. There ISN'T any negotiation. You either take what they want to pay you or you don't. Also no one ever let me know, in person (the GS14 job would have been an internal hire as I already worked there) or by phone that I didn't get the job. Just got the standard email from HR saying I wasn't selected.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
