What Will You Learn in Our MFRW Certification Course?

Federal resumes have a distinct style that’s unlike any other type of resume. They demand more detail, going beyond the usual work experience and education listed on most resumes. They include this additional information to make vetting easier, and they usually run four to six pages long. Our course educates and certifies students on the particulars needed for a federal resume and how to find them. We draw on knowledge from resumes we have developed, outlining best practices that you won’t find in other courses. Our proven process will help you strategize when writing a resume, determining the most critical information to include and what to leave out. During certification, you will learn:

  • Details about federal hiring practices, broken down by series and grade.
  • The best way to write a compelling accomplishment statement.
  • Ways to highlight the most relevant experience on a resume.
