.  The other great advantage with this type of internship is the constant mentorship I receive from my co-workers, especially about how to find Federal government work. Many have helped me tweak my resume, taught me how to use USAJobs, and showed me different ways   to make myself as marketable as possible. Soon after all that help I was being referred to selection officials and it looks like I may have a career ahead of me.  I don’t have the fear I had a few months ago when I was constantly asking myself, “What’s next?”  I think this internship has given me back my sense of confidence that my anxiety and physical limitations had taken from me.
