Juniper-Thanks for your input on my application status with the Army Corps. Just have to hang in there for the long haul, at the same time not put all my eggs in one basket. Need also to pursue options with the private sector; I did manage two phone interviews recently with a private firm in Oklahoma City but it was not a fit. Our highway engineering industry is flat now all across the US, very little revenue available from the feds and states to fund transportation projects. I'd much rather finish my remaining 15 years as an engineer with the Feds, just so tough to get in. Thanks again,Tony
Hey thanks for the input on my post (grad student taking DC plunge). Your advice is well founded, its just nerves are getting the best of me. I've read your replies on many other posts in the forum, you always seem to have a few good points to contribute. Thanks again. Wedge8456
