    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Lot of good info here. Had similar experience upon getting out, but had the retirement check coming in. Unfortunately, a fairly ugly divorce ate up most of my dollars. Someone earlier mentioned USAjobs. You can load multiple resumes from the initial basic file and slant them for your various specialities. Government civilian jobs are not that bad, really. Minimum wage positions with security firms (Hell, Brinks goes after vets, loves them) wears you out. Since you are getting some offers, hope something falls out. But if what you take is the quick fix, then keep plugging away at the GS positions. Good luck!

    It's a great resource. It's how I landed my current gig at Great Lakes, and I'm loving every moment of it.

    Seconded. As long as it's an office type job, and you're working with the Army or Air Force (the Navy is a scarry group to work for...) a GS or contractor job is far better than any of the past corporate or project by project gigs I've had in the past. The added job security is definitely a plus.

    But if what you take is the quick fix, then keep plugging away at the GS positions. Good luck!
    Hey, those have great health benifits.

    Yes, have to agree. The pay and benefits are pretty decent. Especially if added to military retirement. But it takes persistance to get the position.
