A military follower asked me about federal resumes. I wrote federal resumes for a big client, but not recently. I asked colleagues in a Facebook group I’m a part of, and Robin Schlinger emerged as someone whose reputation and work proceeded her. I’ve known about Robin’s work for years through other colleagues and resume writers in the space. She was so generous in offering a mini-workshop hybrid with a conversation to introduce USAJobs.com, the primary site to find federal jobs. I published the video version a couple of months ago on my YouTube page. Today’s episode is the audio version of Robin’s presentation.

More about Robin:
Robin has been writing federal resumes for quite some time. She’s worked with various branches of the federal government providing tutorials, workshops, and coaching. Robin regularly speaks to job seekers and industry professionals on Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), Federal resumes, resume writing, LinkedIn profiles, and successful job search strategies.
Robin’s presentation is nearly 1 hour and 40 minutes in this episode. And it’s a fraction of the entire workshop she does for her corporate clients. We focus on applying through USAJobs.com, the main site to find published federal jobs. She also offers federal resume tips.
- Robin provides preliminary tips to do before starting the process.
- It’s essential on USAJobs.com to create a USA jobs profile–anyone can create their own.
- We discuss your security clearance status on your resume, and your application is vital.
- If you are disabled, you want to listen to the job advice Robin offers at 22:40
- “If you apply for a job that doesn’t match your experience and what you can do, you’re not going to get that job.”
- It’s not a place to change careers. It’s a place to change job locations, doing what you’ve already done unless you’re disabled.
