Has anyone had experience landing a contract specialist position with a federal agency after working for a state agency as a contract/procurement specialist? How competitive was your state experience? How did you overcome your lack of FAR experience with your experience in your state's procurement regulations?

The question really is does your work experience match up with the requirements on the federal job announcement. If you have a degree that's a plus and you can qualify for jobs on that alone at probably a GS-7 or 9 level. Depending on what salary you are looking at consider DCMA's keystone program where you come on at a GS-7 and move to a GS-11 in 3 years. They are located nationwide also. Other agencies have similar programs I'm sure. Good luck.
