The federal resume is a significant part of the application process, but it’s doesn’t make up all of the steps required to get a federal job. Many agencies require you to answer application questionnaires which can qualify as KSAO’s (knowledge, skills abilities, other), which use multiple-choice and short essay responses. How these questions are answered can determine your rating along with other factors. Here’s the good news: All federal agencies are required to provide information about how it will rate or assess its applicants, so you will know up front what will be expected of you and how you will be judged.
You may also be asked for additional pieces of information, such as your college transcripts. If your resume is not accompanied by all requested documents it is a high probability your application will likely be disqualified—so read carefully, submit all documentation and follow through!
