Professional Biography (Bio)

A Bio is written in essay style and details the most fundamental moments, contributions, and style of your career. Generally one page (3-6 paragraphs), it focuses on your most current achievements and works backwards in reverse chronological order. A Bio is utilized for speaking engagements, company Websites, and portfolios used for marketing, job searches, and similar promotional activities.

Strategic Follow-up Letters

A strategic follow-up letter is sent following an interview. More than an ordinary thank-you letter, a strategic follow-up letter strengthens the interviewer's perception of you while addressing any potential concerns that may have been raised during the interview. It also provides an opportunity to add related skills, abilities, and interests, or any other information you did not think of in the interview — which may have a bearing on your candidacy.

Since there will typically be several top candidates competing for the position, each with various tradeoffs regarding strengths and liabilities, a strategic follow-up letter helps nudge that often difficult decision in your favor.

[x]

Additional Resume and Cover Letter Targets

When pursuing jobs that are significantly different (in industry or responsibilities), it is best to modify your resume and cover letter to reflect the skill set sought in each type of position.

This can be especially true when the skills are non-complementary, or when one option is a hands-on position and the other is a management position. Emphasizing skills other than those sought by an employer may raise questions about your interest level in a particular position.

Rewriting your resume for appropriate emphasis on different skill sets will sell your abilities relative to the type of position you are pursuing.

Military Transition Resumes

If you have completed a military career, you have a unique set of skills and capabilities to offer. Your skills are desirable to a civilian employer — if the employer clearly understands how your skills relate to their organization and requirements.

As an experienced professional, you need to be appropriately portrayed as having the skills necessary to meeting new challenges in a civilian environment. Your resume must show that you consistently deliver results in order to create a compelling value proposition. We craft a job-winning resume by converting your military history — such as job titles and experience — into civilian terminology while showcasing your most relevant skills and achievements.

Whether applying to the Federal or private sector, our proprietary skill analysis questionnaire (SkillNet™) will draw out essential areas of your background that, depending upon your circumstances, will include your experience, training, achievements, and academic or avocational background. You may also include a previously prepared resume and other documents. We will then determine which elements to showcase to best support your career goals.

[x]

Executive Military-to-Civilian Resumes

As an experienced executive with a distinguished military career, you need a carefully crafted marketing document demonstrating your record of productivity and leadership. Your skills are valuable to a civilian employer — if they understand how your expertise translates to their environment. Often employers find it difficult to understand how military skills relate to their needs. When an employer does not understand aspects of your history, the employer will quickly move on to the next candidate.

Your resume must show that you consistently seize opportunities and deliver results in order to create a compelling value proposition. You need to be appropriately portrayed as a visionary leader and performance-driven manager. Our Executive Military-to-Civilian Conversion™ strategies will equip you with a powerful resume that professionally highlights a notable career.

Our proprietary skill analysis questionnaire, SkillNet™, will draw out key areas of your background and accomplishments. Next, our strategic development of your resume will minimize potential liabilities and leverage your past achievements and skills for a new set of challenges.

Federal Resumes & Narrative Statements (KSAs, ECQs, MTQs)

A Federal Resume is the primary tool for the first phase of the application process. A well-written Federal Resume will maximize your opportunities by showcasing your appropriate qualifications and achievements. Since mandated changes went into effect, there is a greater focus on a more detailed Federal Resume that addresses core elements relevant to a specific vacancy (or job series). It is important to note that a federal resume must include key details required by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

Narrative statements such as Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs), Mandatory Technical Qualifications (MTQs), and Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) typically address key qualifications relevant to a specific vacancy or job series. Executive roles will generally require ECQs and MTQs with your applications; other vacancies will generally request narratives in subsequent stages of the hiring process. Your responses to these questions are graded and can be critical to the success of your Federal application.

[x]

Executive Federal Resumes and SES

A Federal Resume is now the standard for applying to Federal jobs. As an experienced executive, you need a carefully crafted Federal Resume demonstrating your record of productivity and leadership. If written well, a Federal Resume provides an opportunity to showcase your qualifications and achievements. However, because of the way federal resumes are screened and reviewed, a Federal Resume is generally structured differently and includes details uncommon to those present in a typical resume.

For entry into the Federal government's Senior Executive Service, Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) will accompany a Federal Resume. In addition, some agencies and departments may require these for other types of positions. ECQs consist of five core qualifications elements: (1) Leading Change; (2) Leading People; (3) Results Driven; (4) Business Acumen; and (5) Building Coalitions/Communications. Your ECQs can be used to apply for multiple SES Federal positions.

Our proprietary skill analysis questionnaire (SkillNet™) will draw out key areas of your background and accomplishments. Next, our executive writing strategies will arm you with a compelling Executive Federal Resume and persuasive ECQs to leverage your past achievements for a new set of challenges and professionally highlight your qualifications, from leadership and strategic thinking to managing multiple resources and producing outstanding results.

[x]

Narrative Statements

Once the first round of resume screening has been completed, selected candidates may be asked to complete accompanying narrative statements; examples include Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSA) Statements, Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs), and Mandatory Professional/Technical Qualifications (MPQs/MTQs). Narrative statements typically address particular questions/elements relevant to a specific vacancy (or job series).

Your responses to these questions are graded and are critical to the success of your Federal application. Applying our proven strategies, we carefully craft your responses to maximize your success.
