Introducing the Student Federal Resume Sample Database™

Student Fedres Database

Now, for the first time ever, university career centers and vetran students will have access to up-to-date, successful federal resume samples.

This online Student Federal Resume Database will be available for veterans who are current students and recent graduates who are online looking for information about how to land a desirable federal job or internship. Pathways Internships are available for the first-time and can be converted into permanent positions in government. The Internships are highly competitive and the application is usually Resume Only.

The challenge for students and their federal resume is this:  “the federal resume is not the same as a private industry resume. Students need samples of the federal resumes that are longer than the typical corporate resume.” Says Kathryn Troutman, Author and publisher of the federal student book and database.

The resume samples on the Student Federal Resume Database and in the Student’s Federal Career Guide resulted in internships and new careers for 8 case studies in the book. The Sample Federal Resume Database is based on the Student Federal Career Guide, 2nd Edition by Paul Binkley, Ph.D. and Kathryn Troutman. Three of the samples are for veterans who used the GI Bill to complete their degree and pursue a federal career.
