HOW TO PREPARE A RESUME

If you incorporate the information provided in this document to your resume, you will maximize your chances of being referred.

Writing and Formatting a Career-Focused Resume: Focus your resume on one job or position.
Concentrate on providing all relevant experience, education and training that shows you are well qualified for the positions you apply against. The best resumes are those that are focused, concise, and include only significant skills, knowledge, and abilities from your background. Below are some tips on preparing a quality resume:

  •  Be descriptive. Experience descriptions should be simple and straightforward, descriptive, and reduced to only essential information. Tell us what you did on the job. Include the projects you have worked on, what your specific duties were, what you needed to know to do the job, what tools, software, or equipment you used, and what you accomplished.

  •  Don’t be vague. Emphasize nouns and verbs and provide concrete statements of your accomplishments. For example, use “Utilized Microsoft Project to develop timelines. Prepared budget requests, hired staff, selected vendors, negotiated contracts, and designed and implemented a new Unix client-server information system” rather than “Performed the full range of project management duties for a new information system.”

  •  Use action words, modifiers and phrases such as “designed and implemented new organizational structure plan; negotiated contracts up to $90K; prepared and delivered report on waste management.”

  •  Eliminate unnecessary “flowery” language and don’t be repetitive. Avoid adjectives and adverbs. Instead of saying, “I processed a wide variety of extremely complex financial transactions using two technically advanced automated accounting systems”, you could say “I processed various financial transactions using two automated accounting systems”. Furthermore, once a skill such as “management” or “budget” is pointed out, you need only use the skill again if you are describing a different position.

  •  Use plain English. If you use jargon and acronyms specific to your industry, spell them out at least once for readers unfamiliar with the terms.

  •  Use spell check. Correct spelling will help insure you get credit for all the job skills and experience contained in your resume.

  •  Keep paragraphs short. To make your resume easier to read, add a blank line after every 20 lines or so between paragraphs.

  •  Don’t be fancy. Don’t use fancy treatments such as graphics, italics, underline, shadows, and reverses (white letters on black background) or signs and symbols such as % # * = and don’t type your information in all capital letters.

Additional Formatting Instructions for Uploaded or Faxed Resumes. If you are unable to use the USAJOBS (http://www.usajobs.com/) resume builder, and are planning on uploading or faxing a resume, follow the formatting rules below.

  •   Closely follow the Sample Resume format and try to limit your resume to a maximum of five pages in length.

  •  Provide a laser printer original if possible. A typewritten original or a high quality photocopy is also

    acceptable.

  •  Leave a minimum 1″ margin on all sides.

  •  Use 12 pitch font in standard typefaces such as Arial, Times New Roman, or Courier.

  •  Type in upper and lower case letters. 

DON’T :

  •  Submit a handwritten or copied resume with light or faded print.

  •  Use fancy treatments such as italics, underlines, shadows, and reverses (white letters on black background).

  •  Condense spacing between letters.

  •  Type in all capital letters.

Helpful Hands 

HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:

To determine if you are best qualified for this job, a review of your resume and supporting documentation will be made and compared against your responses to the occupational questionnaire. The questions are designed to capture the desired competencies/knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) for this position. The rating you receive is based on your responses to the questionnaire, and is a measure of the degree to which your background matches the competencies/knowledge, skills and abilities required of this position.

Print all the forms, instructions and contact numbers even if you are planning on applying electronically.  In the unlikely event of a system problem, you can mail in the required documents. 

TIP:  Make sure you are aware of the location and hours of a
local post office to ensure that your documents are submitted by the close date. (See  Job Announcement for specific close date) 

In the questionnaire, the word “WORK” refers to all experiences gained through school, paid employment, military service, voluntary work and through activities done for professional, charitable, church, community, social or other organizations, unless otherwise stated. 

TIP:    It is not the time to be humble or modest.  Applicants should account for all previous experiences as applicable. 

Break down the questionnaire by subjects, topics and/or themes to review your answers and assure they are consistent within the questionnaire/resume or other documents as applicable. 

TIP:    Color code (high-light) all related questions and group them by Education, professional work, voluntary work, etc. 

Follow the instructions exactly.  

Reach the Point of Contact with any questions, problems and/or concerns immediately. 

Review and submit all required documents by the close date. 

Use the wording in the Job announcement

             TIP:  If you have experience in Contracting but the Job Announcement uses the word Procurement; use Procurement in lieu of Contracting.  Similarly Acquisition can be used interchangeably.   If you have public speaking experience and the announcement uses ‘oral skills’ – make sure that you use ‘oral skills’ in your description as well.

If using Applications Manager to submit documents don’t forget to review them to ensure that they uploaded legibly.  If they are not legible you will not be considered.
