Cuts like this are showing up in all the agencies and I don’t have a problem with that. Don’t know about DoD but CMS could trim alot of its bloat and still get the work done.
My question is this: my son is studying for the ASVAB right now and planning to test next month. How do these cuts appear in recruiting? Unless I missed it this article doesn’t really touch on that. My son talks to his recruiter regularly and never hears about hiring or recruiting freezes. Yet one of my friend’s son was riffed last year. So it appears to be an ongoing thing. Should he prepare for a plan B?
I would suggest that he have a plan B, in case Congress passes something inane, Obama does something by executive order, and/or the sequestration goes through.
Have him prepare for Plan B, C and D if he has the ability to do so.
