Benefits of Using an SES Resume & ECQ Writing Service

The Benefits of Choosing an SES Resume Writer

When it’s time to take the next step in your career, an experienced resume writer who knows the Senior Executive Service (SES) can be an invaluable ally. Like all high-level government jobs, competition for SES positions can be fierce — add to that the bureaucratic nature of the hiring process, and it’s easy to see why so many qualified individuals are routinely passed over. An SES resume writer can help you navigate the system and put your best face forward, making sure your unique career experience is translated into terms recruiters can understand. Since 1986, SES Resume Writers has been giving candidates for the Senior Executive Service the advantages they need to move their application forward. In addition to resume writing, we also offer interview coaching. To date, we have written more than 58,000 military transition, corporate, and federal resumes; that includes more than 3,000 SES applications. Of these candidates, many are very successful in landing interviews. If you’ve been considering making a move into the Senior Executive Service, let our expertise guide you to success.

Benefits of SES WritersHow Does It Work?

SES resume writing is a detailed and highly personalized task. You’ll work directly with one of our experienced career coaches to identify suitable opportunities based on your work experience and professional goals, develop a strong application package, and prepare yourself for an interview. For most clients, this can be broken down into four distinct steps:

Step 1: Assessment

The first step is your initial (virtual) meeting and assessment with our team. We’ll review your executive leadership stories and core competencies and identify the strengths and weaknesses that will affect your suitability for the Senior Executive Service. We will then begin to look for relevant opportunities to partner and create an action plan with a timeframe for moving forward.

Step 2: Information gathering

The next step involves gathering the detailed information that will be used to create your resume and application package. This will be done through one-on-one interviews, questionnaires, and ECQ/TQ builders. During this process, our goal is to help you identify the particular executive stories and experiences that demonstrate the leadership qualities required to qualify for an SES position.

Step 3: Resume writing

Once we have collected the information that will serve as the building blocks to your application, our highly skilled executive resume writers will begin crafting it into an application package that effectively communicates the value you’ll bring to the SES. We will also ensure that OPM guidelines are followed with respect to both content and formatting.

Step 4: Review

Our in-house proofreaders scour over your documents for a final check to ensure content and presentation are ready for your review. Your finished resume is then submitted to you for your review. Upon receipt of your initial draft, we provide 2 weeks (10 business days) of support to discuss your application, make any necessary changes, and address questions.
