Applying for a federal job is a nightmare, and seems absolutely hopeless to many applicants. Most individuals that apply for federal jobs never receive a single reply from the agency to which they apply. The purpose of this book is to change that. In very clear and simple language, the author seeks to explain misconceptions of the federal hiring process, outline the process, and give you the nuts-and-bolts of creating a resume that will get you into an interview with a federal hiring manager. Many books have been published on the subject of federal resume writing, but not like this. Simple, direct, and to-the-point, this book has packed a large amount of knowledge into a much smaller package. Including extensive graphics showing exact techniques of resume building and a helpful websites list, this is written by an individual that has navigated the gauntlet of federal resume submission and has succeeded. The author currently works for a federal agency, and is still courting interviews from other federal agencies, and is now helping other federal employees, veterans, contractors, and civilians do the same. The techniques and methods he uses are in this book.
