How just one little word can keep you from getting reimbursed for your expenses.
That you can have facial hair, get closing costs reimbursed (for a domestic move), move a motorcycle (domestically), and use your UAB allotment on the fly.
You need to dive - with gusto - into your current assignment... or you may end up with a ton of regrets like James and I did when we left Houston.
The only way a new employee can get their closing costs for their pre-hire home reimbursed is if they were federal employees already when State hired them, and then moved to a domestic assignment more than 50 miles away from where they were hired.
If you're posted to an overseas post that requires over a year of pre-training, get ready to make some serious financial decisions.
That the Mean FSI Security Guard Thugs are... mean.
That sometimes the Travel People can't really help you very quickly.
If you bid off the "NOW" list, you might just find out how NOW "NOW" can be!
That the question of whether or not your spouse will get to take language training along with you at FSI is a matter deeply steeped in mathematics.
Why you need to have good credit in order to be hired by State. (And also, why you end up floating lots of travel money sometimes. And how it can be really hard to bill/voucher for it sometimes.)
