Senior Executive Service

Senior Executive Service

Executive Service positions are those that are above General Schedule (GS) grade 15 or equivalent positions in the federal government. The Senior Executive Service includes most managerial, supervisory, and policy posts. It is necessary to include the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs), fulfill the Technical Qualifications, and demonstrate your experience at the highest level in order to be considered for SES by the Qualification Review Board (QRB). We make certain that your CV reflects your leadership, innovation, and ability to deal with issues as well as your ability to cultivate connections and form coalitions. We utilize your previous successes to demonstrate a remarkable career. We create a direct, powerful resume and show your aptitude for the requirements, policies, and objectives of the United States.



5 page SES ECQ All inclusive resume:

For the SES position, the Executive Federal Resume format is generally 5 pages. This is a challenging task since the number of information must be reduced to 5 pages while highlighting the most important facts about your leadership qualifications.


5 Page SES Resume and separate ECQs:

The ECQ is a separate document that can be up to 10 pages long or the number of pages stated in the job advertisement. It should be written in the Challenge-Action-Results Model, which is a required writing style required by the OPM Quality Review Board. We focus on matching your achievements, leadership, and abilities to each ECQ.

ECQs may be replaced by a federal agency selecting five executive competencies as Strategic Vision, Coalition Building, Leadership, Resilience, Human Capital Management, and others.

There is some variation based on the job announcement and the agency’s selection criteria. It is critical to follow the directions provided in the job posting. We can write a traditional resume or convert it to a five-page SES resume.
