Title:The Book of U.S. Government Jobs: Where They Are, What's Available & How to Get One (10th edition) (Book of US Government Jobs)

Author:Dennis V. Damp

Publication Date:February 1, 2008

The Book of U.S. Government Jobs: Where They Are, What's Available & How to Get One (10th edition) (Book of US Government Jobs) This updated edition features the information you need to find and apply for government jobs. The author and editors have over 110 years of combined federal government service. Considering that federal employees earn an average annual compensation of $106,871, including pay and benefits, compared to just $53,288 in the private sector, the federal sector is an attractive option for job seekers.

The federal government's new recruiting and retention programs are attracting applicants with lucrative incentives for current vacancies and for the many new jobs created by the new administration. Today federal agencies can pay off $60,000 of new hires student loans, negotiate starting salaries, and offer relocation allowances for critical vacancies.

Readers will find an expanded application and resume chapter that takes readers step-by-step through a typical job announcement and instructs readers on how to write a professional federal style resume and Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) statements. Resume samples, compiled by the author and Kathryn Kraemer Troutman, the author of Federal Resume Guidebook, are included to guide job seekers through the often confusing application process.
