Loren, go to http://www.usap.gov and follow the links for jobs. You need to fill out an application on Rayjobs before anything else. They are already doing the hiring for this upcoming year, chances are you missed it, but then you never know. They hire a thousand persons each year and there is story after story of individuals who go hired at the last minute. Fill out the application and then try your darndest to get your name out front. As a latecomer you best chances will be as an alternate in case the primary person backs out or doesn’t pass the medical.
