I just hired someone a couple of months ago and it was the most brutal process. For what was basically a step above an entry-level position, I had some guy who was a GS-15 apply.

Companies know this, take it into account when they ask you your salary requirements. Bite the bullet, get the job, maybe get a raise after a couple of months of kick-ass work.
