Hi Paul,
Excellent content on your website. My daughter works for the government so she is particularly interested in your HR Guide and I was impressed on your persistence in pushing through with version enhancements.

It is a real pity that mobile responsiveness, particularly for iPhone, isn’t working but it is easily fixed.
There are many plugins that can fix the problem. I have used WPtouch but it hasn’t been updated recently. Jetpack has many capabilities including mobile responsiveness. This fix could attract many new readers because mobile first is how many people are surfing the web these days.

Keep up the great work. There are many people who can benefit from you getting your expertise out into the world.
PS I tried sending this via your email form but it didn’t work.

Hi Paul,

The information you posted about the government HR guide is amazing. It is extremely thorough and helpful.

I am working in the private sector for approximately 9 years and hoping to get into the government.

I completed my exam, interview, and reference checks, which led me to be in a pool of candidates approximately a month ago.

I have few questions about the pool:

1. How long does my name stay in the pool? Does the pool has an expiry date?
2. Can I ask the HR personnel about my ranking in the pool? or she wouldn’t disclose this information?
3. Can I message the Director of the department and ask him if there are any other positions available within the department?
4. Does the pool only apply to the specific position I applied to or I could be recruited to other positions that matches my education (Engineer) and experience?

Thank you for your time.



Hi Paul,

I apologize for the delayed response.

This helps a lot!!! I don’t think I will get this information from anyone else out there. You should start charging for these advises. You will be a rich man lol.

Thanks again for the prompt response.

Have a wonderful holidays and Merry Christmas 🙂
