“After losing 4 jobs in 3 years and with a family to support, I needed to find a job that was stable with benefits. A friend asked me if I knew anything about federal employment. I didn’t know where to start. I began researching on the internet for more information and found this site. After a consultation with FJME, we created a step by step plan that took me through the process from beginning to end. Not only did they hold my hand, but I interviewed for 3 jobs and was offered 2. I’m happy to have job security and a real career. A big thanks to the staff of FJME! I and my family thank you!"

“ I tried applying for a federal government job once before but never heard anything back from them. It was a lot a paperwork and very frustrating. I knew I wanted a federal job because they offered retirement and lots of benefits, but I wasn’t going to try blindly applying again. I found FJME and decided to speak with a consultant. It was the best decision I ever made! They worked with me throughout the entire process and helped me to understand how to apply, how to write my resume, and what paperwork was needed to qualify for the position I was looking for. With their help I was ranked among the highest. When interviewing for the job, with the tips they provided, I aced the interview and was offered the job. Thanks FJME for navigating me through choppy waters! "

“As a single mother with 3 growing children, I was looking not only for job security, but for benefits that offered flex time, sick leave and vacation leave. I had dead end jobs with little to no benefits and no opportunity for promotion. I heard about FJME from a friend and decided to call. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised. Such a knowledgeable staff who talked to me about my goals and needs. Then took the time to create a game plan for me to apply for a federal job. I was guided every step of the way. It’s nice to know someone has your back. Needless to say, after applying for jobs in a few different parts of the country, I was called by one, interviewed and was offered the job. I can’t tell you how excited I was to be moving to another state! It gave me and my children a new lease on life. A big thanks to FJME. My life is moving forward now and my children have a Mom they can depend on and be proud of!"
