Effective immediately, I will begin crossposting the PMF Info blog on GovLoop.
What this means for those of you who follow the blog is that there will be two places to engage in conversation, but it also creates an interesting privacy situation for you to navigate. To the extent possible, I will preserve your anonymity on the PMF Info blog, but you may have no such guarantees on GovLoop unless you have taken steps yourself to ensure your privacy there.
What this means for PMF Info is greater exposure to audiences that are already potentially interested in issues surrounding the PMF program, as well as a larger network of people that might be able and willing to help answer some of the questions I pose (especially around analyzing nominee and finalist data).
Please feel free to engage in conversations wherever you feel most comfortable, and with any luck, together we can build a community around useful and timely information regarding this program.
I will be looking for ways in the near future to keep tabs on active conversations spanning both sites without sacrificing anyone’s expectations of privacy, so stay tuned!
Apologies for cross-posting this comment in both of this blog’s locations in order to get more potential responses.
I am finalizing my USAJobs.com resume to submit for the 2011 PMF application. So far, there is no KSA section (Knowledge, Skills, Abilities) for the PMF application, unlike in other applications for federal jobs. Maybe this section only becomes available once I submit the resume?
I have struggled with using keywords in order to give my resume the best chance of being looked at closely by an actual person. Various sites detailing the USAJobs application process recommend studying vacancy announcements closely to pick up the employing agency’s priorities. However, with PMF there are multiple potential employers and no particular vacancy announcement.
I tried searching USAJobs for my “ideal” federal positions and the keywords they use. Do you have any tips for using keywords in PMF resumes?
