Re: Federal Job Confusion
t just means that there is not a competitive exam or an established list of applicants. For some technical positions, sensitive positions like doctors and lawyers and at some lower level clerical positions there is a shortened route to apply and it is easier to make a selection. It does not mean lower benifits. Someone who is a more recent hire can provide more details but if you see a position of interest just apply for it and see what happens.
