Hiring agencies are looking forward to giving your resume a fair, honest chance.

Don’t believe me? Consider the following argument: there are hundreds of Human Resources jobs available in the government sector, and only a handful of them have anything to do with reading and assessing resumes. Now, why would somebody deliberately take a position reviewing candidate’s resume, if they didn’t enjoy some aspect of the position? You see where I’m going with this – they wouldn’t.

At least, that’s the perspective of many federal hiring managers, who attest to the fact that they enjoy reading resumes, assuming they are written intelligently, neatly formatting, concise, and clear.

If you’re lacking the know-how to hammer out a perfect resume for government jobs, this resource will get you up to speed in no time. Indulge:
