There are plenty of opportunities, in every field, for college students and new graduates.
But you must learn how to write the unique-style Federal resume, and it MUST match
the qualifications on the announcement. This award-winning book shows you how and
walks you all the way through the application process.

“I got my bachelor’s in Political Science and even did an internship in DC. But I had no
idea how to find Federal jobs after I graduated! My dad works for TSA and got me this
book. It shows how to look for jobs online and gives samples of resumes… Anyway, I
got a job! So it definitely deserves 5 stars.”
~ Emily
