Top Tips in the interview:
More jobs are available for military spouses
on USAJOBS due to changes on USAJOBS with the
Military Spouse Program – EO13473
IMPORTANT – New Federal Resume Format is recommended to feature a new “JOB BLOCK” with your Military Spouse PCS Job History.
Recommend that you make your military spouse status clear on your federal resume!
Volunteer positions are equal to paid positions, if you create a “job block” with this information.
Federal Resumes are 3 to 5 pages;
private sector resumes are 2 pages.
Spouses of Active Duty Military person can use EO 13473. They do not need to relocate
with the military spouse.
They can use the Order from any geographic location.
The EO 13473 can be used for the
entire time you are at each installation
(formerly, this was 2 years).
Military Spouses should go for
Federal jobs on military bases !
