Academy Certified Federal Resume Writer Training Program
CTL Conference & Professional Development Symposium
CAREER THOUGHT LEADERS (CTL) NEWS & EVENTS
TODAY! APRIL 6 | Academy Certified Federal Training Program (ACRW-Federal)
Guide your clients in navigating the twists and turns of federal job search through training and feedback on your work!
More than 2 million people work for the federal government, not including the Postal Service or active-duty military members. The vast majority – about 79% – work outside the D.C. region.
Do you want to help your clients access an opportunity to serve their country while gaining employment with strong benefits, stability, and a reliable schedule?
Do you want to be confident you can help clients work through the government hiring process?
If so, read on to learn more about Resume Writing Academy's Federal Resume Writer Certification program!
Helping a client apply for a position with the federal government is much different than applying for a position in the private sector. Most federal positions are posted on USAJOBS (USAJOBS.gov) and most postings require that applicants apply through the system. It is important that federal resume writers understand how the system works so they can properly advise their clients.
The program, developed and taught by former federal HR professional Nancy Segal, will take you step-by-step through the federal application and resume development process.
