We deeply believe each person has talents and skills and these should be fully leveraged when seeking a position to serve in the Federal Government. Our ultimate goal is to partner with you to provide sound and practical training to those who seek to understand the Federal hiring process to further help others.

Great benefits, paid vacation time, a stable job, a “normal” 40-hour work week with a 9 to 5 schedule… Sound appealing? If so, a Federal job is in your future! Many have the skills to be a public servants, but navigating the Federal hiring process is daunting to even the most aggressive job seeker. Join Corliss Jackson, a former Federal agency HR Director, as she demystifies the process:
•    Why is a Federal resume so different than a corporate resume?
•    Which Federal jobs should I target?
•    What is happening ‘behind the scenes’ after I submit my application?
•    How do I negotiate my salary and vacation time (yes, you can!)

Facilitator:  Corliss Jackson, CEO

Corliss Jackson is an expert consultant in regard to the Federal government’s hiring process. She has over 10 years of hands-on work experience at the Office of Personnel Management and at the US Department of Health and Human Services. She left her GS-15 position to launch a consulting firm, Federal Job Results, which she heads as President and CEO.  She is also the author of the Washington Post’s weekly federal jobs column,  Corliss’ Corner.  As such, she is committed to advising professionals who are in transition. Her experience working with the Federal government as a senior program manager and now as a consultant gives her a unique “insider’s view” of the Federal hiring process. She utilizes this expertise to translate her client’s background into the special “Federal language” and “Federal format” required to gain the attention of the Federal hiring staff. Ms. Jackson and her staff provide individual guidance to job seekers around the world and deliver several online and on-ground training courses on how to “Crack the Code” of the Federal hiring process. Ms. Jackson’s latest activity has been the creation and publication of, Cracking the Federal Job Code: Top Secret Tips for Today’s Federal Job Seeker, a book that is full of detailed, step-by-step information about how to successfully apply for a Federal job. She has also developed a curriculum for other job coaches to master the Federal job search process by becoming a Certified Federal Career Strategist. The personal attention and assistance received by clients of Federal Job Results have resulted in tens of thousands of Federal job seekers being able to submit applications that result in an extraordinary track record of interviews and Federal job offers.
