This webinar is broken into three parts: (1) an overview of the benefits of public service and what communication professionals do for the Federal Government; (2) an in-depth look at, the online search tool to find Federal Government jobs including an analysis of several actual communication jobs posted within the last few months; and (3) my personal experiences as a communicator within NIOSH for the past 12 years.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to prepare their USAJobs profile and resumes to improve their chances to be selected for an interview.
  • Decode job titles, series and grades so that participants will know what to look for in job postings and how to make their experiences more closely align with what agencies are seeking.
  • See examples of current communication jobs within the Federal Government and how to best prepare their applications and resumes.
  • Hear from someone with over 12 years of experience as a government communicator.
