Make sure you’re applying to federal jobs that match your skills and experience. Listings on USAJobs include key information like the required skills and who may apply. Keywords you’ll want to use on your resume will also feature on the listing. Pay attention to these so you can start writing a successful federal resume. Every federal job announcement features a similar layout but includes different requirements. It’s easy to develop tunnel vision when you’re applying to multiple positions and forget their different requirements. Print a copy of the job listing for reference as you prepare your portfolio and write your resume — it’ll help you distinguish between multiple announcements.
