In its next initiative to help people obtain employment in these tough times, the Orthodox Union’s Job Board presents Ten Steps to a Federal Job: How to Write a Government Resume, on Tuesday, October 27, 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm (EDT), at OU Job Board headquarters, 11 Broadway, or online, www.oujobs.org.
The presentation will be made by Kathryn Troutman. It will help participants interesting in working for the federal government get one step ahead of their competitors and learn how to write a resume geared for this sector.
During the seminar the following question will be addressed: How is the federal resume different from a private industry resume? Why is it so complicated to apply for a federal job? What is a “KSA?” Federal job announcements are long and complicated; what must you actually know? Where are the federal job listings? Is it really possible to get hired in the government if you don’t know anyone inside?
