Federal Resume Writing

See example outline format federal resume


STAND OUT: The Outline Format has been accepted and highly praised by Human Resources specialist as the easiest to read.

KEYWORD HEADERS:  The HR specialist scanning the resume can immediately jump to the keywords using a KEYWORD HEADER format. They are looking for to find your experience with a particular knowledge, skill, or ability from the announcement and these headers help them locate what they are looking for quickly and easily.

ALL CAPS HEADERS:  Since we don’t have the option to use underline and bold in the USAJOBS resume builder, we use all caps to make the keywords stand out even more.

PLENTY OF DETAILS:  Your paragraphs should make a great case on how much experience you have with the topic keyword.  We provide that case and supporting detail.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:  Telling significant accomplishments that you have had at the beginning of a job block helps the HR specialist visualize your level of success immediately.

Steps in the Federal Resume Writing Process

  • Briefing Review from the Federal Career Writer/Consultant. Your Federal Resume Writer will talk with you about your federal job objectives, occupational series, specific vacancy announcement, and grade level. They will also review details about your objectives, challenges and past experiences. See Federal Outline Format Resume Sample Below
  • Keywords. Your writer will analyze a target vacancy announcement for keywords. We will search for 10 to 15 keywords and phrases that are critical for the success of the resume. This keyword list will be given to you at the time of the delivery of your resume. The keywords will be featured in your federal resume in our popular and successful Outline Format (sample below).
  • Document Review. You provide any documents that you have that can help build the content for your federal resume, such as past resumes, performance evaluations, position descriptions, and awards.
  • Accomplishment Discovery. Next, the Writer will provide a questionnaire for you to identify 3 to 5 of your top career accomplishments related to the position which you are seeking, including the challenges and the results of each. 
  • Research and Review Stage. The Writer will closely review all information provided (phone consult notes, documents provided, questionnaire information, the position announcement and resources we utilize) for the resume to be Best Qualified.
  • Writing Begins! Your Federal Resume Writer then gets busy with expert, marketable and impressive professional writing about YOU and your career accomplishments! You will receive at least two proofs of the resume, with the opportunity each time to review it and make changes. The focus of the federal resume is the last 10 -15 years of your career and a secondary focus on the previous 15 years.

Federal Resume Output

The average federal resume length is 6 – 8 pages (varying according to background and experience as well as GS level). You’ll receive a formatted resume that will be useful for either uploading into USAJOBS or copying and pasting into the Resume Builder. It will be your choice.
