  • How to read a vacancy announcement and how the applicant can set themselves up for success
  • Who gets referred to the selecting official and why
  • The importance of competency questions
  • How, if you follow the rules taught in resume writing workshops, you will probably fail to be sent to the selecting official for a federal job
  • The importance of reading the vacancy announcement from top to bottom as it is the little things that will kill your chances
  • Ways to get into the federal gov't (the applicant should know of the numerous ways to be considered for a position)
  • The Pathways Program – for students and recent grads
  • The Bender List – What it is and how to get on it – for individuals with disabilities
  • Non-competitive hiring authorities (for certain veterans, individuals with disabilities and current and former Peace Corps volunteers, 30% and greater disabled veterans.)

There will also be time at the end of the webinar for questions and answers.
