especially if you are in California and looking to get on with CDF. The application period for CDF closes the end of this month.
If applying to fed agencies, the sooner the better, even if the deadline isn't till much later. They can query the list as soon as the first round closes and make selections off of that. So, even though the agency is still collecting names, the postions are already filled.IACOJ

A lot of the vacancy announcements posted have a closing date late in the spring. But they pull the first applications after a week, and start hiring then. They tell the people they really want to hire to apply early, and they have a much better chance of getting a job.
It may be hard to get hired if you are not 18, but if they really want you they will work around it. My brother got a permanent position at 17, but he couldn't start work until after his 18th birthday.
