I am applying for categorical GS positions. So you're saying "who cares?" or "so is my mama". But I also will apply for three transitional spots and rank them last for the match in case I don't get a categorical spot. Now you are getting angry, "what the hell is your point?". My question is, do I need to write a separate personal statement for the transitional spots? If I get an interview for a transitional spot, what do I tell them? Can I be honest and say that I am applying to them in case I don't get a categorical position? It would be very difficult to bullsh*tnizel about really wanting a transitional spot. Someone educate me, how much **** can I really shovel? Peace out.
