Did you know the most common reason veterans and spouses do not get a federal job interview is because they submitted their corporate resume for a federal job? Uh, oh. Is that what you are doing, too?
I get it. Back in the day, I tried that same strategy myself. Then I could not understand why I kept getting passed over for an interview when the job listing seemed like it was written just for me.
Getting rejected was demoralizing, depressing and downright infuriating. I was sure there had to be a flaw in the system.
Then I decoded the secrets of the undeniable federal resume for veterans, transitioning military members and spouses. It turns out we are not unqualified for the federal jobs we want. There isn't a conspiracy against us. Instead, most of us are writing a bad federal resume, because we do not know the unspoken rules.
I can fix that for you. Jump to the top of the undeniable pile by learning all the buried secrets of the federal resume.
