Hello, I have been applying for Federal employment since 2004 and have filled out in excess of 100 Federal applications this year alone. For the vast majority I have been graded Qualified up to Superior Qualified, but have not even had an interview. I am constantly too far behind people with more points. I did work full-time for the Census Bureau for two years but did not get any points or preference for that. I did a great job and was even promoted during that time. I am a little over 50 years old, and, let's face it, private employers are not knocking my door down to employ me. Can I get some points for being over 50? A medical condition kept me from serving in the military, but it's not severe enough that I'm disabled. I am still a very active, vital, able individual with lots to contribute, but is it time for me to give up trying to return to Federal employment?
