I was introduced to Kathy when she published her first book, the Federal Resume Guidebook. I was impressed then with her advice on not just how to approach a Federal job search but all job searches. Since then, I have always found her advice on job search and resume preparation to be some of the best available. Her knowledge of the hiring process for the Federal government makes her the absolute best single source of information for this particular market.

Vet Success: "Kathryn, I had no idea how to put 20 years of army experience into the new forms of resumes and KSAs that I was not familiar with. Carla saved me. I told her the field I wanted to work in and she created a federal resume, KSAs, cover letter, and a private sector resume for me and coached me on selecting the announcements that she felt were a good match for my experience. Carla saved me. I informed her of what I wanted, and the field I wanted to work in. She created a resume for me that got me qualified and hired. I retired Feb 1, 2013 and I start working with the state government in a position that is a pay equivalent to GS-9. Thanks, Carla. I could not be where I am without your help. Every penny I spent was well spent. If I had it to do all over again, I would. –Tyrone S.
