I have applied for more than 400 plus jobs at Redstone Arsenal. I have not been called in for one interview. I am a 40% disabled veteran, have four degrees which are in Electro-Mechnical Technology, Instructor of Technology plus a teaching certification, degree in Computer Science, and Information Technology Internet Security. I have certifications in from CompTia, the CIO/G-6 courses and do accreditation work. I have been doing accreditation on computer systems since 1995 with DIACAP and DITSCAP.
 
I have mentioned such in my resumes and resumix. I had a GM 15 at Redsone Arsenal review my resumix information and he said he saw nothing wrong with it. I have not been called in for one interview, I also worked for the US Air Force and the Army Corp of Engineers as a civilian employee. 
 
I had to leave Andrews AFB because of my mother having a terminal illness and I had to help her. I was able to get a job with the Army Corp of  Engineers where I worked as a civilian for 5 years until my wife's job tranferred her to Augusta, Ga. I was not able to get on with the Government employment there and I had to resign from the Army Corp of Engineers because of my Leave Without Pay time running out. My wife's job ended there and I was able get a job in Huntsville and have applied for more than 400 positions in computer technology and INFOSEC. Can someone give me a hand with this? So if there is such a shortage of persons for INFOSEC why can't I get an interview?

Sounds like there's way too much competition there at Redstone.  Maybe you need to expand your target some.
 
Best of luck in your job-hunting process!

If you are coming back as not referred then the issue is probably a lack of key words in your resume. If you are getting referred and just not getting interviews, then I agree with Katydid that the competition must be steep at Redstone.

CISSP and either a MCITP or CCNP wouldn't hurt either.
