Federal Resume Guidebook

Federal Resume Guidebook 6th Edition


Before reading Kathryn Troutman's "Federal Resume Guidebook, 6th Edition" I submitted exactly 18 federal job applications and did not receive a single referral. After reading the book and retooling my resume, I was referred, interviewed and selected for the second job for which I applied! Wow!

12/12/2016 - Kathryn, I am writing to let you know that your Federal Resume Guidebook helped me land a job with USDA. Prior to getting this book, I had submitted 5+ applications to federal agencies. After getting this book, updating my resume, and completely re-doing my cover letter, I was finally referred for a job! In short, you’re awesome and I am thrilled to be starting a dream career.
