Government Expansion

The federal sector is still hiring nationwide and overseas. The Affordable Health Care Act includes over 100 new regulatory agencies and commissions and more federal regulators will be needed to administer new EPA and OSHA regulations and to manage the many other federal programs that have been expanded over the past 5 years. The federal government now owns all of Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac plus they took over 100% of the student loan program. There will be bumps along the way and many agencies may experience some downsizing to address budget shortfalls.

There is considerable competition for anyone seeking federal employment and those interested in working for Uncle Sam must develop a professional federal style resume and application to remain competitive and start the process early to improve their chances of success.

Resume Service


Apply early using the application process and comprehensive resume guide in The Book of U.S. Government Jobs to make a connection. It pays to apply for federal jobs well in advance of the time you will be available for employment. Applications usually take six to eight weeks for processing. It may take longer if written tests are required, especially in overseas areas. Many jobs limit the number of applications available and the time allowed for filing. Applications are accepted until the limit is reached or until the closing date of the announcement.
