I am so jealous. I've been applying for every VA job that opens up here. Like you my dad is a veteran and I'd love to be able to give back like they did. Congratulations!!!

Scrubwearer I am wishing you the best of luck in finding a job with the VA. Don't give up, and keep trying. Everytime see you job postings on USAJOBS.gov, apply. That's what I've been doing. Even when I was still in my LPN program I knew that I wanted to work for the VA because I won't join the military and way too scared, and I feel like this is the next best thing to take care of those brave men and women who fought for us.
Keep trying, never give up. I've applied five times. Filling out all those forms and faxing them. I figured one of these days they'd get sick of all of the pages of my fax that they would finally hire me. The hiring process with the VA is like a 15 step process. The interview is step 8 (is that crazy or what?). Now I have to wait for my references to get back to them, they need to do the background check, and I need a physical with them along with fingerprints. I sent HR an e-mail asking how long this part is going to take, and he said about a month. I'm so excited to start working!!!!
