  • 'The site http://www.jobscan.co is also a great place to identify keywords for your resume. All you do is paste in your resume plus the job description, then Jobscan analyzes your job description for you automatically and identify the most important keywords for you! it literally takes seconds and it so worth the copy and paste. Saved me so much time AND I got more interviews using Jobscan! I recommend as well! '

  3. 3. Resume Formats What do you do? Format-bullet points are generally not used in a federal resume, write in concise well developed paragraphs. Use quantitative and qualitative statements. Using this format you can address two issues: A-You can write in complete and articulate sentences. (key to any position) B-Paragraphs allow you to provide the full scope of your knowledge, skills, and abilities. Qualification Determinations- are based upon a standard position description selected by the hiring manager. Your resume is rated and ranked against a point value system as indicated on the PD. Determinations can only be adjudicated on the information given on your resume, incomplete information may result in a low rating, detailed resumes will generally receive a rating of Best or Superior qualified in Category A 3
