Here are some tips you can use when writing a federal resume.


You will first need to gather information to build a description of your skills, knowledge and experience to include in your resume. The way you present your resume could determine whether you are called for an interview or not.

Unique Resume

There is no one-size-fits-all resume. You will have to build a unique resume for yourself. Go through the job advertisement and focus on the parts of your skills, education and work history that match the listed job requirements. You will need to portray your skills and experience as a perfect match to the requirements to show you have the capability to do the job. You might want to avoid using specialized terminology (military abbreviation) in your resume.


You will need to use one of the three formats; functional, chronological or a combination of both for your resume. The format you choose depends on the type of work you have done in the past, and whether you will be continuing in the same category.

Andrew Crumbie recommends working with your resume slowly and carefully before going for your interview.
