First-Time Federal Applicants
A successful (best qualified) federal resume is not a guessing game. It is highly strategic in terms of the qualifications that you can offer, including education, training, specialized experience, and your knowledge, skills and abilities. This session is mandatory preparation for our federal resume writing service, in order to determine the best occupational series for you, the grade level that is right for you, and how to match your background and resume to a job announcement. Check out our free 30-minute Federal Resume Writing Webinars – Especially the 7 Tips & Tricks for your Federal Application webinar.
Current Federal Employees with Current Resume
Are you seeking a promotion with a fairly current federal resume? This consultation will cover your strategies to get promoted to the next grade level, to change occupational series, or to change agencies. During the session, your consultant will review your resume, a sample target announcement, and what is missing in your federal resume for past applications. The session will also include a discussion about accomplishments in the CCAR (Context, Challenge, Actions, Results) model. The accomplishments can help your resume stand out to get Best Qualified and referred (as well as selected for an interview). Use our CCAR Accomplishment Builder to write your work accomplishment stories!
Current Federal Employees with Outdated Resume
Are you trying to update your federal resume for the first time in many years? This consultation will cover your past years of experience, accomplishments and challenges. Homework will be given for accomplishments, responsibilities and KSAs, to cover both past work experience and targeting the new career.
Federal Job Search Troubleshooting
This consultation will cover past failed federal promotion attempts and applications that did not result in getting Best Qualified, Referred or Interviewed. Your consultant will review your past resumes, your questionnaire answers, and your responses (or lack of responses) from federal HR specialists. You will receive recommendations for changes to improve your results. This can include resume improvements, accomplishments / questionnaire answer improvements, document upload suggestions, or even the selection of different job announcements.
