So, I applied for a SES job. Got through two rounds of interviews. Didn't get the job. Here's what I learned: 1. Ask for feedback on your interview from the folks on the panel. They'll give it to you.

2. Don't expect the status of ANYTHING to change in USAJOBS during the process.

3. Thank everyone involved, including the people who helped you schedule.

4. I had several people cheering me on, which was really cool.

5. i didn't die when I didn't get the job. Seriously, not a big deal. So put yourself out there and apply!
