Department of the Navy employment opportunities require submitting a resume. A resume is a way to market an all-important product – YOU. After all the time, energy, effort, and hard work you have invested in your education, training and career, marketing through a resume is your first step towards Federal employment.
Federal resumes differ from private sector resumes. Federal resumes require detailed information about your specific work experience and other job-related information. Because Federal human resources (HR) professionals operate under various Federal employment laws, rules and regulations, they cannot infer from your previous job titles or Navy Ratings your applicable experience. It is up to you to describe your past work experience and how you qualify for jobs to which you apply.
Here are some hints to help your resume get noticed and help you get the interview:
