Question by Todd S: Living in Connecticut applying for jobs in DC?
I am currently living in Connecticut, however, I am interested in a lot of jobs that are in DC…in this current job market, is that foolish? A friend of mine said that the best way to get a job in DC (political job that is) is to be there physically living there. Am I foolish, or is she wrong? If she is right is there anyway that I could still get a position in DC?

You can definitely get hired for a job in D.C. while you don’t live here and even if you don’t, there’s no harm in trying, right?

Like any other position in this economy you’ll need to put together a really strong application package that emphasizes your qualifications and skills and why you’re the best fit for the job. You’ll be competing with a lot of equally qualified people – everyone wants a government job now. Pay attention to the KSAs (knowledge, skills, and abilities) that you need to answer for any federal job. These are a big part of the screening tool to get interviews and can make or break your chances. Use the language from the Agency/Office’s website and from the job application while answering.

Make sure in your cover letter that you state you are interested in relocating and don’t expect to have you relocation expenses or expenses to travel for an interview paid.

    You do not have to live in DC to get a job in DC. I lived in Cleveland when I applied for a job in DC. I did my interview over the phone. My agency did not pay for relocation to the area, but I do have friends that received some money for travel expenses when they applied for and received federal jobs in the DC. There are agencies, even in this economy, that will pay relocation. The Army Corps of Engineers is one agency that I have noticed that does pay relocation. Many agencies will repay student loans also.
