It profiles numerous sites that advertise federal positions and describes how to analyze the announcements to determine the qualifications that they are really looking for. It describes how to apply for federal positions, including submitting resumes electronically and addressing the knowledge, skills, and abilities that the positions ask about specifically. Finally, it provides advice on how to interview for positions and helps applicants to understand the benefits that will be offered with federal civilian jobs.
