J M Advisory Services, LLC - Resume Writing and Career Counseling


What happens after you submit an application for a federal job?

All qualified applicants are placed into one of the following categories: 

  • Best Qualified
  • Well Qualified
  • Minimally Qualified


Only the "Best Qualified" applicants are considered for the job.

How do you improve your chances of getting on the Best Qualified list?

First, submit a professional resume that clearly ties your skills and experience to the job.

Second, address the minimum qualifications (as indicated on the vacancy announcement) to ensure you are determined to be qualified for the position.

Third, address the desired qualifications (often referred to as the Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSAs) on the vacancy announcement) to get into the Best Qualifed category. 

Finally, make sure that your responses to the Questionnaire are reflected within the body of your resume.
