I have about a year left before getting my BA in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations. I have an AA in Culinary Arts; my previous career was as a Pastry Chef. I live in DC and have found it impossible to secure a federal job despite being a veteran (I‘m not eligible for vet preference) and having over 20 years admin/office experience in gov/civilian offices domestic/overseas. Without at least a BA there’s nothing decently paying. I’m at the end of my rope. At my current job I have an HR complaint against management and am on the verge of losing my job on Dec. 1st. I don’t know what to do anymore.
