Kinser is an expert at helping Federal and military personnel in advancing
their careers. We frequently work with the following:
Many candidates do not seriously pursue Federal job opportunities because
they don’t understand or are frustrated by the application process. Although
the process is time intensive and more complex than private industry job
searches, Federal employment has many benefits and is worth the effort.
Regardless of the agency, position, or specific application process for the
position, we can guide you in developing the strongest
application possible for the position.
In general, your Federal application will include the following:
Federal-style resume (recommended) or Official Form 612 (OF-612)
“Application for Federal Employment.”

SENIOR EXECUTIVE SERVICE (SES) CANDIDATES
Senior-Level positions on the Senior Executive Service (SES) schedule will

professionals offer public and private sector employers a strong and
disciplined work ethic and a commitment to service. The challenges for those
transitioning from military service to corporate America or Federal
employment, is to “de-militarize” their experience and achievements to
demonstrate business-world relevance. We can guide you through the process
of evaluating your military career and translating your experience into a
context that will appeal to public and private sector employers.
Many outgoing military personnel hold current security clearances, which can
be a very marketable asset for certain positions. A candidate with an active
security clearance saves his or her new employer considerable time and money
since they do not have to initiate a full-scale background investigation.
