Testimonials

  • "What was most useful abut the Ten Steps to a Federal Job curriculum to me was having the whole, complex process broken down into small, manageable pieces.”

  • “Everything has been useful [in the Ten Steps to a Federal Job curriculum]! 95% of my clients are interested in federal employment. This workshop has opened up my understanding 100-fold, and because of this my clients will be rewarded beyond measure.”

  • “This course has thoroughly equipped me to provide training to military and Department of Defense civilian spouses.”

  • “Thank you for bringing Kathryn Troutman to teach the resume writing class. I have been in the government over 25 years now and it was one of the best government sponsored classes that I have ever been to. Resumes are not one of people’s favorite subjects, and I wasn’t exactly looking forward to the class with great expectations. I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that Kathryn made the class live for me. She pointed out things I was doing wrong, and showed me how to do them correctly. She is indeed a subject matter expert and an accomplished communicator/motivator.”
