I was introduced to Kathy when she published her first book, the Federal Resume Guidebook. I was impressed then with her advice on not just how to approach a Federal job search but all job searches. Since then, I have always found her advice on job search and resume preparation to be some of the best available. Her knowledge of the hiring process for the Federal government makes her the absolute best single source of information for this particular market.
