Rewriting a Federal Employee Resume for the Private Sector

I work for the federal government and needed a resume to transition to the private sector. In a federal government resume, one has to list everything. Top Resume. My resume write, Jenna, within 25 hours provided me with a two-page resume that captured my last 15 years of federal service. My resume know has impactful and "achiever" language, especially since I have been with the same employer for over 10 years. However, I have held different roles. Jenna and I went through 2-3 minor iterations of my resume. When I showed my resume to friends in the private sector, they liked the formatting, layout, language, and that it is all of two pages.

What we do

Did you know?

A standard resume won’t cut it when applying to a job in the federal field.

Certain government resources offer specific templates to use during the application process for a federal job. If you deviate from these templates, you risk losing out to a candidate who applied properly. Not to mention, the process itself is pretty complex.

Many career coaches recommend having a professional resume writer create the documents for you, as they stay up-to-date with training regarding the federal job application process. So, simplify your job search and ensure that every application you submit counts, with a professionally written resume optimized for the federal position you are targeting.
