Government Resume Format

By | February 2, 2009

Government Resume


In most countries, a resume for government applications may not be necessary- you may have to simply fill up a form. A resume, though, allows you to include more detail in your application, and these details may be what the hiring agency is looking for.

A government resume in your location may require more information in the contact details. The USA federal resume for example, needs a social security number and your country of citizenship.

Military service information like veteran’s preference and other information about your federal status may also be required. Make sure to ask the hiring agency of any required information and format.

Below your personal information, try to include all details about the job you’re applying for, like job title, series, grade, and announcement number.

Your summary of qualifications is a key element of your resume. Make sure that you emphasize enough qualifications and skills that would likely attract prospect government offices.

Under the work experience entries, list your accomplishments during your stay in your previous government agencies.

Lastly, it will be of great help if you keep your resume simple and well organized so that it can be understood with ease. Key information should be clear and easy to find.
