    Don't think about applying for a Federal Job until you read this book!

    The Federal job application process is nothing like the private sector. Different agencies have different ways to apply, there are different rules, different required formats and documents, and job announcements are confusing to understand. This book explains the entire process.

    My only gripe about this book is with BN. Why don't they offer an eBook version for my nice new nook, when Amazon has one for the Kindle?

    Federal Resume Guidebook, a Must Have for Federal Job Seekers

    The Federal Resume Guidebook is an excellent resource for those wishing to pursue a career in the Federal Government. The book is filled with tips and techniques to use when preparing a federal resume package to land a Federal job. For example, Chapter 9 discusses Questions, KSAs and Essays. It sheds new light upon what Federal agencies are looking for in terms of KSA content. Whats more, Kathryn discusses using the tried and true method for developing a KSA, the CCAR format. This format allows applicants to put their best foot forward and really illustrate to the hiring official their area of specialized skill through the use of personal examples and experiences. The Federal Resume Guidebook is very easy to read and packed with sample case studies.

    Very Helpful

    I could not understand why I was not receiving the responses back from jobs I had applied for. This book explained why, and I have revamped my resume and answers to KSAs. Let's see what happens this time around...
