Saving Money on Your Federal Job Search
At The Resume Place, we want you to succeed in your federal job search, whatever your budget may be. That is why our company offers so many money-saving tools for your search. For President’s Day, here are my top ideas and recommendations for affordable education and information to help you land a stable, career-oriented position in the federal government.

First, I want to set the stage by showing you that landing a federal job is an investment you can make in landing a job with a highly competitive salary, promotion potential, and great benefits. For example, this could be your future government job salary:

– The average entry-level job in government (GS-9) in the Washington, DC area pays: $51K to $67K. – The average mid-career position in government (GS-12) in the Washington, DC area pays: $62K to $82K. – The average senior-level position in government (GS-13) in Washington, DC area pays: $89K to $115K.
