This is a very important step. Even if you are qualified (sometimes called “minimally qualified”), you may not be found to be BEST qualified and your
application will not move forward to the selection official (hiring manager). Many people make the fatal mistake of applying for jobs for which they
are either minimally or not qualified, and their applications are not forwarded for consideration. Based on our insider knowledge of the Federal HR
selection and hiring process, we will direct you to focus on those jobs for which you are best qualified — which significantly increases the likelihood of
your application moving forward in the process.
WRITING YOUR FEDERAL RESUME
A Certified Federal Resume Writer will write your Federal resume to target those Federal jobs for which you are best qualified. It is extremely

Service ECQs (Executive Core Qualifications).

application package. Both must be well written
and directly relate to the core competencies required by the Federal Government for Senior Executive
INCORPORATING YOUR KSAs
Many agencies (96%) no longer require separate KSA (Knowledge, Skills and Abilities) essays / narratives. It is still your responsibility as the
applicant to address the KSAs in the body of your resume. It is important not to overlook this step; your KSAs must be woven into your resume and
they must be directly related to the skills desired by the agency. It is like a puzzle; all the pieces must fit together in order to move your application
package forward to the hiring manager. We will ensure this important step is completed as part of the Federal resume writing phase of our

SECURITY CLEARANCE: SF-85 & SF-86 ASSISTANCE *
Once you have received your job offer for a position that requires a security clearance or public trust, you will be asked to complete an SF-86 or SF-
85. These forms will be used as part of your background investigation. The SF-86 is a very lengthy form that many people find intimidating and
sometimes intrusive. The SF-85 is a shorter form, but it too can be daunting. They are often not completed properly which can cause a significant
delay in the
investigative process. You may find that it is a good good idea to meet with a consultant to ensure that your
SF-85/86 is completed
properly. We can assist you with the SF-85/86 data collection and application process.
