Hi everyone. Up until this point I have always had a corporate job and my resume is geared towards that. I am working on my first government resume and have been reading conflicting information. Some suggest being very specific and lengthy (using full paragraphs) when describing job details, skills and accomplishments. Others suggest bullet points highlighting the same information. Bullet points are what I am more familiar with but want to make sure I am using the best format. Thank you for your suggestions!
For some reason I am not able to read your entire post (it cuts off after bullet…) but a few tips: it is crucial to have all key words in your resume, i.e. start from ‘Qualifications Required’ and your resume should have not only key words but all key phrases, a good way to capture this is to rephrase each of the qualification required, add a semi-colon, and then put an example of how you complete this task, your resume will not get by HR if they cannot clearly identify each of the required qualifications easily
