Welcome to The Gov Geeks! We're here to improve the people side of Government - in a fun way! I'm Javier and here's quick-tip number 1 to help you get in and get ahead in government: Save file names and folders with job ID numbers.
Government job announcements can take a while to hear back on. Several weeks or even months can pass by before you get an interview or even a response. It's just the way the process goes. In that time, you may have applied to half a dozen other positions. While these applications can help your odds of getting an interview it can also become challenging to keep track of all the announcements. Here's a quick tip to keep them all straight.
Save the announcement number in each of your file names and save those in separate folders as well. This way, you have a full record of what was submitted to which job and can quickly reference each opportunity. Believe me, there's nothing worse than getting a call from a prospective hiring manager and not knowing what you submitted!
This quick and easy way to manage your documents can help you keep it all in order!
