Happy Independence Day from The Resume Place!

Introduction: Here at RP, we are constantly coaching our clients to write “stories” about their accomplishments to demonstrate KSAs from the job announcement.

Personally, I am inspired by Francis Scott Key’s experience, the flag, Ft. McHenry, our country’s survival, and the amazing poem that Mr. Key wrote, especially the phrase “o’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.”

Can your spirits be raised to write a better federal resume by thinking about the morning that Francis Scott Key wrote the poem “Defence of Ft. McHenry” that became the National Anthem? Mr. Key’s accomplishment would make a great KSA for Ability to Write!
