    Hello Federal Jobseekers, please gather your questions for the show. Write to me and I”ll try to give you insight into a federal job search. Remember that a federal resume is different than a private industry resume! Kathryn Troutman, President,

    Idetrorce – Thank you for your comment. Our show provides many resources, obviously individual results will vary…..however, I am a firm believer in the Federal Resume Guidebook. I have read it personally and read the testimonials. Its so effective military bases across the country provide seminars using Kathryn’s materials and processes. If you already have a federal job, congrats! If you are looking and haven’t had any luck, you might try contacting Kathryn’s company to review your resume.

    Best of luck to you!
