Military to Federal Career Guide, 2nd Ed a two-color, easy to read, big type career resource book is designed for the recently returned Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veterans who would like to land a stable civil service job in the federal government. On Nov. 9th, 2009, the President of the United States has signed an Executive Order to encourage MORE hiring of veterans into the government, "Employment of Veterans in the Federal Government" and created an excellent website to support the hiring of veterans in the government, in order to land one of these federal jobs the veteran still has to write a competitive, complete, targeted federal resume and apply for the federal jobs online and following the directions. Writing a federal resume is challenging for most veterans. The Transition Assistance Programs that are provided for veterans before the transition out of the military do NOT cover the federal resume and federal job search process. So, this book will give the veteran the information they need to write a keyword federal resume that is focused toward a federal job.The private industry resume is VERY different in terms of format, length, content and keywords. The Federal resume is about two times longer and MUST include the keywords, competencies and skills from a target announcement. The book contains 5 excellent sample federal resumes for E-5 to E-7 from USMC, USAF, USA, USNR, and USCG military services.The CD-ROM that accompanies the book contains 20 samples of veteran federal resumes with keywords, accomplishments and the vacancy announcement / keywords for each of the cases. The CD-ROM is designed to show the veteran the way that a federal resume is written and formatted in comparison to the typical private industry resume. The CD and book include samples of cover letters, which will become part of the new federal application, as recommended by President Obama and John Berry, Director of the Office of Personnel Management and based on 2010 Federal Hiring Reforms.Kathryn Troutman is internationally recognized as the "Federal Resume Guru" by federal jobseekers and Federal human resources specialists, Troutman created the format and name for the new "federal resume" that became an accepted standard after the SF 171 form was eliminated in 1995. She is the pioneering designer of the Federal Resume based on her first book, the Federal Resume Guidebook, which already is in the fourth edition. Some of Troutman’s other federal career publications include the Federal Resume Guidebook, the award-winning Student’s Federal Career Guide and Ten Steps to a Federal Job, and the Military to Federal Career Guide, which is used in every Navy and Marine Corps base, and most Air Force career transition centers in the world.Troutman founded and is the director of the Certified Federal Job Search Trainer program for training separating military and spouses in federal job search. This was the first federal career train-the-trainer program to train career counselors and military career counselors in the federal hiring process and on using the popular curriculum, Ten Steps to a Federal Job, based on the award-winning book by the same name. Since 2002, more than 400 career counselors and workshop leaders have been licensed to teach the Ten Steps curriculum. In addition, the 62 U.S. Navy Fleet and Family Support Centers worldwide teach this curriculum to separating and retiring military personnel and family members as part of the Transition Assistance Program (TAP). The U.S. Air Force, Coast Guard and Army military transition centers use the Ten Steps Jobseeker Guide (workshop handout) and curriculum to help military personnel write federal resumes and submit to Resumix databases.Kathryn Troutman is the founder and president of The Resume Place, Inc., a service business located in Baltimore, MD, specializing in writing and designing professional fede
