How hard is it to get a government or federal job?
I see so many postings for opening for government jobs. How hard is it to get those jobs? Do they only hire graduates with degrees in criminal justice? Do they require super high gpa?

I am a HS grad and worked for the USPS. I saw a now hiring sign in a postal lobby and applied, passed the test and was hired. That was 7 years ago when I applied and the USPS is going down hill now. Keep applying for every job you want to apply for. You might also try the City as these jobs pay well with good benefits. Apply for clerical jobs just to get your foot in the door. You must have a clean criminal background. They are not going to hire someone with a shady past or DWI's nowdays. Those ads you see on Career builder saying "now hiring for blah blah" are fake.....The postal one just give you study material for a FEE. I just took a Civil Service test for a Clerical position at my local Courthouse. Go to City websites, County websites and start there if you have to.
