Writing Your First Basic Military to Federal Resume

By Kathryn Troutman

Your federal resume is the most important career document you will write as you pursue your new federal career after military service.

First, you have to find the position that’s right for you. Second, you have to write a federal resume that demonstrates you are at least minimally qualified for the job. YOU will have to make this happen.

This past summer, we just released the second edition of our Military to Federal Career Guide, which is a short, easy-to-use book to help returning veterans apply for federal jobs — particularly jobs that they are uniquely qualified to do because of their military experience.

I wanted to share some key pages from this book on how to get started writing a military to federal resume. Click on the pages below to download the PDF version of these pages. If you want to read the entire book, you can buy the print book or download the eBook here.

Also, in honor of America’s veterans, we are having a special discount on all Veterans Federal Resume services. Thank you for all that you have done for our country.
