The process of getting a government job often involved preparing complex applications or specialized resumes which include the "resumix." One complication of the federal hiring process is that the resume used for federal employment is not the same as the resume used to obtain civilian employment. This book shows real examples of effective federal resumes and the "resumix" which worked for real people. This book will do a great deal to make the federal hiring process understandable as it illuminates one of the most complex features of getting a government job: writing the federal resume or "resumix." Praise from job hunters who have used the Government Jobs Series: "Even if you post your resume online or through the Government's Resume Builder, you need to develop a strong written draft first. This book will show you how." A. Howie, book reviewer "I learn best by example, and the samples I found in this book showed me how to create a resumix." T. Jameson, government employee "Getting into the federal government system is a complex process, and that process is made easier by the guidance in this book." J. Lampros, book reviewer "How to write an effective resumix mystified me until I followed the formats provided by the Government Jobs Series." A. Cageline, government employee "Some books talk about what you need to put into KSAs. This book shows what to do in sample after sample, and the real examples helped me get a big promotion." J. Sadisamo, government employee "After I left military service as an NCO, I tried for a year to get into the federal system. One day I got hold of this book and rewrote my resumix so that my experience was translated into understandable terminology. That made all the difference, and I am now a GS-13 in Washington, DC." A. Brown, federal employee "I had been wrestling with KSAs for more than two years when I discovered this book. It was like a light bulb turned on. Through the samples in this book, I saw the rhythm and flow of the KSAs when they are highly effective, and I decided to grind it out by following the samples. I will never like writing KSAs but I know how to write them now so that I get selected for an interview, thanks to this book." P. McIlheny Praise for titles in the Government Jobs Series and Real-Resumes Series: "Distinguished by highly readable samples." - Library Journal "A guide that significantly translates veterans' experience into viable repertoires of achievement." -Booklist "This thoughtful resource should come as a welcome and valuable tool." -Small Press "Those picking up this book will be looking for specific references. Most likely they will find what they're looking for. Written in clear, practical terms." -Independent Publisher "A complex process suddenly made simpler. Recommended for anyone seeking a federal job." -Veteran's VoiceRead Less
