Ten Steps to a Federal Job® Certification
Your presentation, insight, tips, and overall guidance was, has been, and continues to be TOP notch. I can truly say without any reservations that when I took your Ten-Steps certification training back at Fort Hood, TX it changed my perspective and gave me the tools to assist many clients seeking federal employment. I say thank you so very much for your guidance and the wealth of knowledge that you continue to provide for folks throughout various roles in public, private, and nonprofit roles/responsibilities.
Federal Resume Writing and the Outline Format!
- On a personal note, utilizing your technique and approach I have been asked to interview for virtually every federal position that I have applied for since 2017, I have held federal positions as Employment Readiness (Army) at Fort Hood and Fort Carson (GS-9, Step 4) a Test Coordinator in the Portland, OR MEPS (GS-7, Step 10) Human Resource Liaison with VBA in Portland, OR (GS-9, Step 5), and currently a Training Instructor (GS-11, Step 1) with VHA I feel that I am definitely one of your success stories!
- I wanted to reach out and provide an update on the position I applied for. Earlier this week I received a tentative offer and a final offer which I have accepted for the position. It’s extremely exciting and I’m looking forward to the new challenges. I can’t thank you enough and appreciate all the time you spent working on my resume. I really appreciate it!

I took your class in July 2021. I wanted to extend my appreciation, and share the news that the resume’ format I stuck with recently helped in my promotion from a WG7 “Materials Examiner & Identifier” to a WS4 “Materials Handler Supervisor”!
