From Our Clients (Resume Services)

  • Cynthia Cohen - civilian to federal client

    " 5 Stars ***** I am very impressed how professional and knowledgeable the CPG team is. Of the two coaches that I worked with, they did not hesitate to refer to the other one if they did not have the answers I was seeking. My resume is totally awesome - it even impressed my civilian coach! The coaches were extremely pleasant and professional, but also personable. I would absolutely recommend Career Pro Services - I feel without the help of your coaches, I would be clueless and lost in mounts of government paperwork. "

Federal Resumes

What Is a Federal Resume?

A Federal resume is considered the official application for job vacancies within federal government departments and agencies. A federal resume has many specific requirements other than a private sector resume. Federal resumes can be limited to job block character counts and require keywords and core competencies not required in a private sector resume.

Federal resumes are incredibly detailed, complex in format and consist of at least three but not more than five pages. Higher positions typically expect seven or more pages for comprehensively delineating the applicant’s experience, skills and qualifications.

What Is Required on a Federal Resume?

All Federal resumes must include basic information about the applicant — job history, personal and contact information, references from past employers — as well as highly particularized information regarding certifications, degrees, awards, special accomplishments, memberships in organizations, public speaking performances, publications and characteristics that make the applicant qualified for the position.

Standard resumes normally given to private sector hiring managers should never be submitted in lieu of a Federal resume. Formats, length, content and structure of Federal resumes differ tremendously from non-federal resumes. In fact, a standard resume submitted to a federal agency will be rejected immediately, regardless of how qualified and competent the applicant may be. 

What Is the Federal Resume Format?

Formatting of a Federal resume is precise and unalterable. Deviating from the expected Federal resume format will disqualify the applicant from receiving an interview from the hiring manager. Essentials of formatting a Federal resume include an introductory paragraph containing the applicant’s:

  • Name
  • Address and phone number
  • Citizenship status
  • Veteran status
  • State or federal government experience

Other formatting elements involve skills summary, inclusion of keywords relevant to the position being applied for and real-life examples of career highlights. The amount of detailed information and strict adherence to formatting specification necessary for creating a recognition-worthy Federal resume is so overwhelming and frustrating that most people hire a Federal resume-writing service to develop their resume.
