civilian employees! To put that in perspective against some heavyweights in the private sector:
Walmart has 1.3M employees; General Electric has 305,000 employees; IBM has 435,000 employees; and Yum! Brands Inc. – owner of KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut employs 523,000.
Federal career opportunities, benefits, salaries and opportunities for stability and growth are excellent! Our professional resume writers know what federal resumes must contain and what “keywords” selecting officials expect to see when deciding whether to place an applicant on the “Best Qualified List” for further consideration and interview.
Applying for a Federal position is more difficult than applying for a regular civilian position. Each Federal Government position has its own requirements including who can apply, when you can apply, and the required documentation to apply. These requirements can be very confusing – and if you do not follow the requirements, you will not get the job. The professional federal resume writers at Resume Karma can help you through this process.
A federal resume is different than a civilian resume because it requires more information. A Federal Resume is:
- Longer than private industry, the average is 3 to 5 pages and requires information such as full addresses of previous employers, supervisor names and phone numbers, and detailed listing of education and training.
- Shows in writing that you possess the Qualifications and Specialized Experience that are detailed in the position announcement in order to make the Qualified List or even better – the Best Qualified List.
- Shows you have the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) to perform the position which is detailed in the announcement and often requires you to write essays for those KSAs which are 1-2 pages in length each.
- Includes keywords from the vacancy announcement required for the job(s) you are applying for.
