Creating a Federal Resume
A resume for a job with the Federal government is different than one for the private sector. Unlike the typical resume that is one page, the federal resume needs to be several pages and should have concise detailed information.

Here is some help for creating a resume:
The www.usajobs.gov website has a federal resume builder that can help you.
This is a powerpoint from a resume workshop offered periodically at the park.
Resume Workshop (pdf, 37 pages; 3.8 MB)
Checkout this example of a Federal resume. Though the character is fictitious and silly, the layout of the information is an excellent example of what detail is needed for the resume.
