Curriculum Vitae (CV) Example

Writing a Federal Resume

The federal resume is the official application for position vacancies within the Federal Government. Make sure that you read the federal job vacancy announcement VERY carefully and follow it to the letter. It is important to remember that YOU MUST SUBMIT ALL REQUIRED INFORMATION. Some agencies have their own requirements for presenting your application materials. If you fail to submit required documentation or present your application materials exactly as they state, your application can, and/or will be, subject to loss of valuable rating points to elimination from consideration for the vacancy.
