Happy Holidays from Kathryn Troutman
and Resume Place writers, trainers and staff!
2019 was a big FEDERAL JOB SEARCH YEAR !
From Kathryn Troutman:
I hope that you have had a good year! The holidays are coming and I’m thinking about the thousands of Federal jobseekers we have coached, written, trained and helped to land Federal careers or get promoted! This is a very rewarding job !

during a Ten Steps class at Airmen & Family Readiness Center
I have been working very hard on the 7th edition of the Federal Resume Guidebook through the last 6 months! This 7th Edition is about 80% new from the 6th Edition! It will be available in February of next year. The book presents our best writing tips, targeting strategies and 17 Federal resume samples to help YOU get promoted or obtain your first-ever Federal position.
#Resume Place is almost 5 decades old now! I started RP in Washington, DC in 1971. RP went totally Federal with USAJOBS coming online and the first-ever Federal Resume Guidebook in 1996! Today RP is very busy with our Government agency training, our Certified Federal Job Search Trainer / Certified Federal Career Coach Ten Steps to a Federal Job programs, and our Top Federal Resume Services for serious and dedicated jobseeekers … AND OUR BOOKS! The Best Books on Federal Resume Writing !
FEDERAL RESUME WRITING SERVICES AND A BIG CHANGE FOR FEDERAL RESUME REVIEWS AND QUOTES. News – Quotes are not free anymore, sorry.
Our new Federal Resume Assessment, Report and Quote service is going great with Rita Chambers and Debbie Hahn. I made a BIG DECISION in 2019 to STOP writing the free quotes and reviews of Federal resumes myself, personally. (Up to 200 per month.) Yes, there is a fee involved now – $99 or $190 — but the value of the federal resume review and quote is invaluable. We have many success stories because our Federal resumes MATCH the USAJOBS announcement.
Top Tip for the Best Federal resume for 2020: Keep the resume to 5 pages; add accomplishments to the resume for SPARKLE and to match the questionnaire.
SES ECQ WRITING SERVICES – EXTREMELY POPULAR AND SUCCESSFUL!
Our SES ECQ Writing services are outstanding and continue to grow. WE have several agency contracts with the Veteran’s Administration, US Secret Service, TSA, FEMA for reviewing ECQs and teaching ECQ writing classes for CDP classes and future SES candidates. Our individual services are excellent and include Assessments, Consulting, Writing, Editing and Interview preparation. The quotes for the SES services are invaluable if you are a serious SES candidate.
Top Tip for getting started with ECQ writing for 2020: Write your Top Ten List of Accomplishments BEFORE you start writing your ECQs.
BEHAVIOR-BASED INTERVIEWS – PRACTICE IS CRITICAL!
The Federal job interview is still a TEST. And we teach the Federal interview format to employees in Federal agencies at NASA, FEMA, EPA, NAVY, AF, NPS, and many other agencies.
Hot tip for 2020: Practice and prepare five stories to talk about in the interview.
OUR BEST NEW IDEA FOR 2019 –
STARS ARE LINED UP FOR #MILITARYSPOUSES
I traveled around the world teaching Ten Steps to a Federal Job, the Certification class, and Stars are Lined Up for Military Spouses.
#MILSPOUSES AND A NEW FEDERAL RESUME FORMAT
FOR MILITARY SPOUSES!
The book and format are getting GREAT reviews! The spouses love it. The managers like it, so they will understand the knowledge of the total career of a military spouse.
