About Federal Government Resumes
A Federal Government Resume is the most important document for starting or advancing your federal government career.
A Federal Resume is different from a private-industry resume because it is typically longer and contains some basic “compliance” information required by government personnel.
It is a critical marketing presentation, career summary, and personal presentation. It is not just an outline of your jobs and dates.
It is a carefully focused, well-written, clearly organized and professionally presented career package that can help you win jobs and earn promotions.
The Federal Resume utilizes a reverse-chronological format (most recent positions first) and could range from two to ten pages.
Federal resumes are strategically developed to incorporate the all important key words and core competencies that take you to the top of the qualification selection.
