If you don't mind my asking, what happened to the Fed job that you had before?
I'm retiring in a few months myself. I am actually sitting in the SFL-TAP (Old ACAP) course right now as I type.
Going over resume's and presentation etc.
My head is spinning right now. I'm undecided on what I want to do when I get out, and am literally worrying myself sick about the possibility of not being able to find a decent job.
Have you tried the Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Veterans' Employment and Training Service.
