  1. I tried looking into the Pathways Program and the only way it looked like I could apply is through USA jobs and every time I look there's almost no listing for students, maybe 1 or 2 at most but that's it. Is there a better way to go about it?
  2. Hm, ok thanks for the info, I'll check it out. Also in terms of the 24 credit hours would you happened to know when it says "management and organization" can I take classes just listed as management?
  3. I'm still in school, not majoring in business but I plan on getting the required 24 business related credit hours. How can I go about getting/applying for an internship (anywhere) in the contracting field? Can I intern while still in school? Or do I have to be a college graduate?
  4. Thanks I'll check it out. And I visit the usajob postings for 1102 positions quite frequently too, there seem to be a lot of openings but I'm worried that I'll be one of hundreds submitting my resume to one job. There's not a lot of info on 1102 positions in terms of how competitive it is and what not so I'm not sure if I should try to get into the field or not.
  5. Thanks for responding. As I mentioned in my initial post I'm willing to go anywhere. What other information should I provide to get a clearer answer? I'm still in school and haven't yet decided on a major but if I do decide on a bacerlors in business/finance I would like to intern in some type of 1102 position. I saw in one discussion board someone mentioned they get hundreds of applicants and make very few callbacks, I wasn't sure if that was area specific or not, I don't really want to get in a field that is difficult to get into/move up. (I have seen many job postings in Virginia but I also don't know how many applicants those jobs are getting.) Are internships hard to get? If I received an internship and was a good worker willing to move anywhere would it be hard for me to move up grades compared to veterans or those with master degrees?
  6. True, but that can be said about virtually any job. Are the jobs pretty competitive? It's hard to find a whole lot of info on 1102 jobs.
  7. How hard is it to get into government contracting ? Let's say I somehow manage to get into an internship and then get a GS-05 position how hard is it to move up as a non-vet if I'm willing to relocate anywhere? How competitive are the jobs?
