Very few of us have ever had the privilege of handing in our resume confidently along with a new job application. There is always that fear in the back of our minds: was it safe to include my 5th-grade karate certificate as an achievement?
Once you have been offered the job, accepted it and have started your career with it, you should from time to time return to your Resume and ask yourself: Is something missing from my Resume?
At the start of your first day with any organization, there are bound to be a few butterflies. Whether it is your first job or your fifth job, this is a common experience. The truth is, your work life is but a circle.
So, you’ve made it through the initial stages of the federal application process. Typically, this is an online process in which you’ve received an email stating that you’re now being scheduled for an interview. However difficult that initial stage seemed; now you need to prepare yourself.
So, you tidied up your Résumé, polished off your Cover Letter and sent your job application in. It seems like months ago that you did that and at last the phone call has arrived. You tell your friends and family that you think you’ve got the job, if you can only get through the interview next week! It can’t be that hard, could it?
