At a time of record-setting unemployment, few sectors in the US are hiring. But the federal government is in critical need of many new employees to help support their efforts to address the Coronavirus pandemic. Fed Jobs Guru Kathryn Troutman provides an orientation to 12 openings in her new Udemy.com course COVID-19 Federal Jobs.
Baltimore, MD; April 21, 2020. In addressing the Coronavirus crisis, the federal government needs to hire across America. Top Federal Jobs Expert Kathryn Troutman has created a new course COVID-19 Federal Jobs which turns the spotlight on 12 critical mostly non-medical openings.
The course has just been posted on Udemy.com, along with three others from Troutman — including a class on how to write the specific type of resume that the feds require.
“Landing one of these jobs is a great way to do something about the crisis while also getting your foot in the door for a federal career,” notes Troutman. “These are temporary positions, most lasting one year, and they are open to the general public. Once you have that experience under your belt, you can apply for other fed jobs as an insider. Many more government jobs are available to current federal employees.”
While the positions posted in the USAJOBS COVID-19 section are temporary, Troutman expects most will be extended. Also many can be worked from home.
- One of the positions covered in her course is Information Technology Specialist (Customer Support) for the Department of Veteran Affairs, and there are 247 locations in the US where they are hiring. The job will support an expansion of telehealth efforts at hospitals.
- Another is Loan Specialist for the Small Business Administration, which is a full-time telework position. These employees will manage the many SBA loans going out to small businesses.
- Other jobs in her course span logistics, health data assessment, housekeeping, emergency management, public health, food workers and more.
- Respiratory Therapist is the one medical job included in her course, and many of the COVID-19 federal positions are health-related.
Individuals new to this job market should know that federal resumes are different from public sector resumes.
To cover the knowledge gap, Troutman is also offering the Udemy.com course Federal Resume Writing Basics. “A lot of people think a private sector resume will work for federal openings. But it doesn’t. It’s too short,” Troutman says.
Typical private sector resumes are two pages, while federal ones are four to five pages. Also more descriptive material is required to prove your qualifications for a fed job.
Courses on Udemy.com are broken down into short video-taped mini-lectures on a topic. This enables busy people to take the course when they have time or move through it quickly. In addition to her COVID-19 jobs and federal resume writing classes on Udemy.com, Troutman is also offering Private Sector Resume Writing and Using Linked-In and Cover Letters for Promotions.

“If you want a federal job, now is the time to apply,” Troutman says. “The COVID-19 federal jobs are under the Direct Hiring Authority, which means they will be hiring quickly. You can skip some red tape.”
