This session is the second part of a two-part session on the Federal government hiring process. In this session, we will briefly reviewing the Federal hiring stages introduced in the first session, and dive more deeply into how to best build a resume for Federal government jobs. In this session, we will also discuss the Federal interview process – what to expect, what the differences may be, and how best to prepare for different possible approaches. We will also talk about how to navigate the offer and acceptance process, and what to expect once you have received an informal offer. Bring your job announcements and resumes from the first session to continue our hands-on work in this Part 2!
