The Power of a Professional Federal Resume

We can produce federal resumes that are free of military jargon and include key information such as responses to KSAs. We’ll also help you prepare a resume that is compatible with USAJOBS.

Narrative statements such as Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs), Mandatory Technical Qualifications (MTQs), and Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) typically address key qualifications relevant to a specific vacancy or job series.

Executive roles will generally require ECQs and MTQs with your applications; other vacancies will generally request narratives in subsequent stages of the hiring process. Your responses to these questions are graded and can be critical to the success of your federal application.

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.

Our Process - The ResumeYourWay Standard!


Chronological resumes list work experience according to date, with the current job appearing first. Chronological resumes work well if your career has been progressive and you plan to continue in the same line of work.


One size never fits all. We tailor your resume to the position’s requirements. Study the job opportunity announcement and emphasize the parts of your work history that match the qualification requirements listed there. We will portray your knowledge and skills as a match to the requirements of the position and demonstrate the ability to do the job by include your results, achievements, and accomplishments. we will minimize the use of technical jargon or specialized terminology (e.g., military abbreviations) in your resume.


Resumes are generally presented in one of three formats: chronological, functional or a combination of both. Which format you choose will depend, in part, on the type of work you have performed and whether or not you are going to continue in the same field.

  • Chronological resumes list work experience according to date, with the current job appearing first. Chronological resumes work well if your career has been progressive and you plan to continue in the same line of work.

  • Functional resumes are organized by the skills you have used on the job. Functional resumes work well if you are contemplating a new career, do not have a lengthy work history, or have held a number of different positions because they sell your abilities based on the skills you have acquired throughout your career. Be sure to include relevant volunteer experience.

  • Combination resumes both describe your work experience and highlight your skills. Combination resumes usually provide the most comprehensive overview of your career.


Unlike resumes used in the private sector, federal resumes require additional information. For each past job, we give the standard information found in most resumes and in addition, we will include the following in your federal resume:

  • Job announcement number, job title, and job grade of the job for which you are applying.

  • Your full name, mailing address, day and evening phone numbers and home e-mail.

  • Country of citizenship, if different from U.S.

  • Special Hiring Authorities.

  • Veterans
    We will ensure that you attach or upload supporting documentation (e.g., DD214 or Statement of Service if still on Active Duty; SF-15, Application for 10-point preference; and Disability Rating Letter of 30% or more from the VA, if applicable).

  • Peace Corps / AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteers
    If you are a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, you will need to provide your Description of Service (DOS) to claim non-competitive eligibility for federal jobs. AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers need to provide a copy of your Service Letter to apply for non-competitive positions.

  • Persons with Disabilities (Schedule A)
    To verify eligibility for employment under the Schedule A hiring authority, you must provide proof of disability issued by a licensed medical professions, a licensed vocational rehabilitation specialist, or any federal agency, state agency, or an agency of the District of Columbia, or U.S. territory that issues or provides disability benefits. 

  • Education

    Keep in mind that your military training may count towards qualifications. We will use your Verification of Military Experience and Training (VMET) document (DD Form 2586) to document your training and education.

  • Work Experience
    We will include all relevant experience. It is common for federal resumes to be longer than average, so do not cut out important details to try to fit your resume to one to two pages. A good federal resume should clearly outline your key work, volunteer experiences, academic accomplishments as well as extra-curricular activities. It should also highlight the unique skills that set you apart and make you uniquely qualified for the position.

  • We will sudy the job opportunity announcement and emphasize the parts of your work history that match the qualifications listed there. Remember, human resources specialists might not be familiar with your career field. To help them understand how your experience matches what is required for the vacant position, we make sure to describe your experience in laymen’s terms. Most importantly, we will describe job duties and accomplishments in a way that demonstrates how you are qualified.

  • Current job-related certificates and licenses.

  • Job-related honors, awards, special accomplishments, leadership activities, memberships, or publications.
