Master Class: Finding the Federal Job 2.0


    Master Class Recap

    FUP Federal Resume

    The federal government is the largest single employer of veterans—they want your subject matter expertise, transferrable skills, and security clearance. So how come you are not even getting the interview? Because you are not playing the game according to the rules.

     In this master class, you will learn:

    1. How to know if federal work is right for you—let me share the test that can save you lots of time.
    2. USAJOBS:  How to get past the secret barriers so you can get an interview.
    3. INTERNSHIPS:  How to find the secret veteran entrance to government work. Find out how to get one at every stage in your career.
    4. What are the critical resume mistakes you are most likely making on your federal resume? Let’s fix those fast.



    Under the section of the application titled “Accomplishments, Duties and Related Skills,” use this formula to qualify yourself fully: 

    CORE COMPETENCY IN ALL CAPS. A phrase from the self-assessment questionnaire or duties section. Star statement describing the knowledge, complexity, supervision, scope, effect, and contacts from this job. For the “Resulted In,” mention a concrete result that includes a number, percentage, award, policy change, medal, and high-level school.


    Find your family code of jobs on USAJOBs, and you can get the jump on the competition. Here is the description of codes. Pick one or two that best suit your career.


    Internships are the secret sauce for veterans to break into federal employment. Each of the agencies has its own veteran program. Reach out to one of the  Veteran Employment Program Offices for each agency. 


    While the Department of Defense and the Veteran’s Administration are the two agencies that hire the most veterans, they are not the agencies with the happiest workers. Find out the best agencies for worker satisfaction here:
