    Hey yall,

    I just found this great sounding federal position and I REALLY want it. The only thing is the entire application process. Now I've been told to keep your resume to 1 page but I heard thats out the windo when applying for a federal position. Also the KSA's.. I don't even know where to begin, but it seems I must be missing something.

    I want this position but I really have no clue when it comes to the KSA's. Any tips, ideas, suggestions on the entire application process especially the KSA's


    I'm not sure how much traffic this section gets, but hopefully somebody will respond cause I need help :blush:

    I hate KSAs!!!!

    I applied for two federal jobs and completed the KSA's and wasnt hired for either. I'm in the govt now, but fortunately didnt have to complete any for my current position. I wish I could help sis. I guess I just wanted to briefly complain about the process. :lol:

    It goes without saying that creation of ksa's depends in large part on the specific job for which you are applying.....I have been with the fed gov. for 30 years and believe it is important to use certain "buzz" words to show your expertise level, i.e. "I developed methods to improve.....", "I coordinated the development of.......", "I prepared for presentation....", etc.... Try a Google search on "how to write knowledge, skills, and abilities" that should give you some great ideas & GOOD LUCK!

    I&#39;ve been with the gov&#39;t almost 14 years and I know I didn&#39;t have to fill out a KSA &#39;cause I had to look up the term. <_<

    I agree, I don&#39;t think all positions required it, my position requires a license, maybe that was why I didn&#39;t have to fill out one.

    Hello,

    Sorry to hear you are having problems with the application process. KSA&#39;s are difficult on a lot of people, which may be where I can offer some assistance. Although I have never worked in the govt. I have 2.5 years of technical writing experience as a govt contractor and I create KSA&#39;s and other written services for side money. If you are interested, or just need some specialized advice please do not hesitate to PM me.


    Good Luck,

    Lyrik

    <span style="font-family:century gothic">I&#39;ve been applying for some gov jobs for the past few months and even some last year. I just took a test that was 3 hours long for a position. I&#39;ve never heard of KSA&#39;s before! I&#39;ll have to google it and research it! Good luck to you! </span>
