Are You an Expert Federal Resume Builder?

Are you ready to actually apply for federal jobs?

Many first-time federal job seekers do not realize that there is more than one federal resume builder website where jobs are posted for various agencies. It's a good idea to get ready to apply for federal jobs by posting your resume at more than one website. The USAJOBS site is the most popular, but there are others.

Note: if you want an Army Civilian position, you MUST submit your resume on the Army website. Also, remember that just because your resume is posted on a federal jobs website, you have not necessarily APPLIED FOR A JOB. The actually applying for the job is usually a 2nd or 3rd step. Read the directions on "How to Apply" in the vacancy announcement.

This quiz was designed by Kathryn Troutman, author of the best-selling, award-winning, Ten Steps to a Federal Job, 2nd Edition, which will help you put your very best foot forward in your federal job search.

Take the quiz below to see how "ready" you are to "apply" for federal jobs.
