Federal Resume

The Federal Resume for Senior Executives contains more information than a civilian resume. It is in a specific format - as specified by the Federal Government. It needs to include the key words required for the job(s) you are applying for and for Senior Level positions, needs to convey the Senior Level experience that you have performed during your career, in the most powerful verbiage possible.

The resume needs to be complete, with information not typically found on a civilian resume - including social security numbers, full addresses of previous employers, supervisor names and phone numbers, and a detailed listing of education and training.

Army Resumes is expert at preparing dynamic SES Federal Resumes that highlight your Senior Level achievements. Call us today at (800) 471-9201 for a free consultation or fill out a

Executive Core Qualifications (ECQ)

According to the Federal Government, "The Executive Core Qualifications (ECQ's) define the competencies and characteristics needed to build a federal corporate culture that drives for results, serves customers, and builds successful teams and coalitions within and outside the organization. The Executive Core Qualifications are required for entry to the Senior Executive Service and are used by many departments and agencies in selection, performance management, and leadership development for management and executive positions."

Typically, the Federal Government requires 5 ECQ statements for SES positions:

  • Leading Change
  • Leading People
  • Results Driven
  • Business Acumen
  • Building Coalitions/Communications

Each statement is 1 to 1-1/2 pages long. In these statement, you highlight your experience, through examples, of how you have addressed each of these factors. Army Resumes will work with you to prepare these statements. We will develop narratives that follow the Federal Government model for each factor, including:

  • Challenge. Describe a specific problem or goal.
  • Context. Talk about the individuals and groups you worked with, and/or the environment in which you worked, to tackle a particular challenge (e.g., clients, co-workers, members of Congress, shrinking budget, low morale).
  • Action. Discuss the specific actions you took to address a challenge.
  • Result. Give specific examples of the results of your actions. These accomplishments demonstrate the quality and effectiveness of your leadership skills.

Managerial and Technical Qualification Statements

In addition to the ECQ's, many SES positions also require managerial and technical qualification statements. These statements, also 1 to 1-1/2 pages in length, are specific for the job you are applying for. They need to be answered using the challenge / context / action / result model noted above. Army Resumes will work with you to prepare these statements. Call us today at (800) 471-9201 or fill out a Quick Quote for a free consultation to start your SES application process.

Cover Letter

The final finishing touch of an SES application package is your Cover Letter. The Cover Letter will highlight how your experience matches the requirements of the position you are applying for. Army Resumes produces these executive-level cover letters, clearly stating your interest in the position.
