I am a 62 year old veteran who did not get hired until age 56. Most of the time, the young trainees are getting the work as interns because they go to school and carry at least 3/4th’s of a full load. From there, it is up to you to get noticed by the brass, usually by showing enthusiasm and taking pride in your job as an intern. This is what I did to get a job. There are other ways such as working as the canteen as this is one of the few jobs that will rate you as a permanent employee. When these entry level jobs are posted, they may have a mountain of people applying. One filter usually used is being a veteran or a permanent employee. There are plenty of employees who work at the va who are not veterans.

Don't even waste your time working at the VA. Take my advice, I have been there for 23 years and it is getting worse and worse. Do yourself a favor and work for a facility that will treat you like a professional and reward you as such,
