    • The expanded 11th edition of The Book of U.S. Government Jobs features how to find a high paying, recession proof career with the federal government. The author recently retired from government service and he included his personal perspective throughout this new edition. Damp was a high level manager for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and for the last 20 years he was responsible for recruitment and hiring for the FAA. He knows what it takes to go from job hunter to hired employee, and everything in between to improve the readers chances of landing a high-paying government job.

    • The following ProfNet "Tip of The Month News Wire" was sent out in early February by our Publicist. The Topic is how to RECESSION PROOF Your Career with a federal government job.  An Expert Alert....


      RECESSION PROOF YOUR CAREER: The "R" word is being thrown around a lot these days and astute workers are looking for ways to add stability to their careers. Dennis V. Damp, retired federal manager and author of "The Book of U.S. Government Jobs:"
      The federal sector doesn't suffer layoffs like the private sector during hard times. Uncle Sam institutes a "Reduction In Force" (RIF) when agencies reorganize or downsize. Most agencies offer jobs in other locations or they simply downsize through attrition and allow eligible feds to take early retirements. A far more civilized approach.

      In addition to the security you have with federal employment the benefits far exceed what you can expect in most private sector jobs. Many aren't aware that the average annual federal workers compensation, pay plus benefits, is $106,871 compared to just $53,288 for the private sector according to the United States Bureau of Economic Analysis. Another major benefit is that workers can carry their health insurance into retirement after working only five short years. Many workers in their 50s look for federal employment for just this reason alone. Add up to 5 weeks paid vacation and 10 paid holidays while working and a lucrative fixed retirement annuity to the mix which is almost unheard of in private industry these days. All good reason to explore this lucrative job market.

      Damp, who spent 35 years in federal service, is available to talk about the many opportunities available and how applicants can recession proof their career and improve their chances of employment.

    • The prestigious "Journal of Applied Rehabilitation Counseling" published a full review of this title in a recent 2006 issue. An excerpt follows:

    "This fourth edition of Health Care Job Explosion is full of ideas about potential careers in the health care industry as well as how to get a job in these careers....The publisher provides information on health care professions, as well as careers that one might pursue in the health care industry which are not specifically in the field (e.g., computer applications, billing clerks).   

    The strength of the book is its comprehensiveness about available resources, how to use them, and what to expect from them... It would be an excellent resource for rehabilitationists to access job information for their clients. It could also be provided to clients to guide their own job search efforts. Finally, it would be helpful to people who are trying to define a vocational objective in the medical services area."
