In Troubled Times, Student’s Federal Career Guide 4th Edition
Leads Grads to Employer Who’s Hiring – That’s Uncle Sam
Baltimore, MD; June 2, 2020 – Graduating college during a pandemic is difficult. You have to skip the traditional prom. Plus it can be depressing looking for a job in a country rocked by COVID-19 and high unemployment. However, there is a bright corner of the job market that is hiring and looking to bring in new graduates – the Federal government. According to Kathryn Troutman, the author of the new Student’s Federal Career Guide, 4th Edition, this is the time for grads to “go Federal.”

Also deal with fact that after layoffs, furloughs, federal government is going to be a very popular place for job hunters.”
She explains, “Many other sectors of our economy have closed their doors to new hires. The government really needs people because lots of senior employees are retiring. And there are many positions being offered related to the COVID-19 crisis. Those jobs are direct hire, which means they bring in people quickly.”
Savannah A. Smith is a successful applicant whose Federal resume is one of 13 excellent samples included in the Guide. She just accepted her dream position as a Consumer Safety Officer (GS-7) with the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), after graduating with a Bachelor’s in Biology.
Troutman notes, “The reason Savannah did so well is because her resume was detailed in terms of her course titles, school projects, and skills from volunteer and school efforts. Another factor is that the FDA is hiring like crazy.”

The author says the Guide is cutting-edge because of the way it shows how to emphasize the graduates’ academic experiences and projects with details and by placing this info at the top. This is instead of the usual way of covering education with one line at the end of a resume. Plus the reader is directed to come up with Accomplishment stories showing that what they did in school was above and beyond the normal. Actual Vacancy Announcements are presented alongside the graduates’ resumes to demonstrate how to carefully match the job requirements, a crucial aspect of applying with the Feds.
The Student’s Federal Career Guide, 4th Edition, clearly walks users through a 10-step Federal application process that starts with Accomplishments and ends with Negotiating the Job Offer. Info is delivered in a concise, easy-to-understand manner packaged in an attractive, three-color layout. Aspects unique to this job market are explained, such as how to write the best Federal resume (quite different than the private sector resume), handling the mandatory self-assessment Questionnaires, and opportunities available to new grads and students, such as the Pathways’ career development program.

“This is an absolute must-read for any student who might want to go with public service,” says Troutman. “Because the resumes are so good. They’re so different than what students would see in their career center. And the right resume makes all the difference in the world.”
