Overview

This new book is designed to help job seekers find the right federal job. The first part of this unique guide discusses how to find the right occupation through the career-planning process, develop a vision for your career, do self-exploration, develop needed skills, and create career goals. The second part overviews the federal government as an employer, including benefits and locations of jobs, how to match yourself to jobs and agencies, and the skills the government is seeking and in-demand federal jobs. The authors explain the federal job search process, with insider guidance on resumes, interviewing skills, informational interviewing, networking, distinguishing yourself, and common mistakes that federal job seekers make.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Certified career transition coaches who advise federal employees, Ruck and Taylor emphasize employment stability, comprehensive benefits, and meaningful public service as reasons to consider a job within the federal government. In this career guide, they outline opportunities available, delineate how to match particular skills and competencies to individual federal agencies, and how to navigate the federal hiring process. The authors provide valuable information and insight about federal government employment as well as tools for developing career goals. Targeted information about individual agencies, the federal government as an employer, and worksheets to evaluate potential career fit distinguish this guide from similar titles. Sections on the application and interview processes, emphasizing potential situations and questions, will prove particularly helpful as well. VERDICT Highly recommended for the college student doing career planning or the job seeker in the midst of career change, this guide demystifies the process of seeking federal employment.—Jane Scott, George Fox Univ. Lib., Newberg, OR
