Civilian Resume

Civilian Resume (private industry vs. federal):

Don’t let the word civilian confuse you. It’s simply a way to distinguish these resume s from federal resume s. Basically anything other than a federal resume is considered civilian. These resume s can be used for a contractor position with the government, but not to apply for a federal job.

Frequent questions I hear are: Should I keep my resume to one page? How far should I go back? What are these companies looking for? How can I represent myself best on paper? If you are asking these questions, it might be time to call for some back up. From college graduate to seasoned professional, your resume is a living document reflecting your specific skills, experience, and, education. Using an outdated resume qualifies you for jobs that are beneath you, harming your career progression. Investing in a high quality, professionally prepared résumé by someone who has obtained multiple résumé industry certifications is investing in your career.
