If you are like most other people that has applied for federal employment, you submitted your resume package for several government positions and may have got word back that you did not qualify – or in most cases, you did not hear anything.
Unlike the private sector in which the purpose of a resume is to get your foot in the door for an interview, the purpose of a federal resume is to tell the Human Resources (HR) Specialist that you meet at least the minimal qualifications and are therefore eligible to be considered for an interview. The simple fact of the matter is that the HR Specialist who reviewed your package had straightforward guidelines (Qualification Standards) to go by in order to determine whether or not to pass your package on to the hiring official for a potential interview. Unfortunately, while you may have been very qualified for the position, your resume package was either incomplete or did not adequately reflect the extent of your education, training, or experience.
