Federal Resume Do’s

Most people have at least tried to write a normal resume, but writing a government resume is quite different. You can’t just follow the rules of writing a regular resume and suppose that it will land you that government job. Nowadays, writing the resume on the Federal resume form is the accepted protocol; this form is also called the OF-612 form. Here are some dos and don’ts when it comes to writing a government resume

Include contact information as requested: Be certain to include your complete contact information, such as your name, address and email, civilian grade if applicable and job series and dates of previous jobs as applicable.

Write educational history in chronological order: Unlike standard resumes, you’re going to provide your background information and qualifications in chronological rather than reverse chronological order. So, for education, you will want to start with your high school education, and move on up from there.

List any major pursued, and include the total credits earned: It might be appealing to use bullet points for these paragraphs, but be careful; while bullet points are perfect for civilian resumes, they are less applicable in federal job applications.

Be as tho as possible: Again, while civilian resumes focus on being succinct and to the point, federal employers are going to want to know accurately what you have done, specifically as it relates to education and experience.

List equivalent experience: There may be times when your education doesn’t specifically match the qualifications needed for the position, but if you’ve had experience that will qualify you nonetheless, make sure you list it.
