Your resume should list your objection, your PERTINENT work experience, your education and that's it.  References should be professional, professors in pertinent studies and perhaps a long-term family friend, pastor or working person in the field.  

Put yourself in the position of the person reading the resumes.  You want clear, concise and qualified.


OMG you just saved me a LOT of trouble!! I was about to go back to listing irrelevant jobs just to show all of my work history.

The only thing I really have that may help me get the job is a solid 5 years of care giving experience for my mom, dad, sister- plus 6 months of my grandmother (before she passed away).

I'm on the fence about listing my education, since it has absolutely nothing to do with the career I'm trying to pursue (journalism).

No they have a format screen that you put your resume in so you will copy and paste. If it ends up being that many pages after you fill out the resume part then it will be.
Once you have it in there you save it and you will not have to do it again, but remember to edit it every time you apply.
 
Again remember to use some of the terms they use in the job duties description. You may have it already listed in your resume just replace what you have with what they listed. Don't copy the whole job duty description they have listed they frown upon that. Try and spread it out over your career within your resume.
 
Clear bullets, if you did have any certification do list them in the resume screen. If you received an award for something you did say it in your resume.

If after FIRST writing your RELEVANT job history AND you're still under 1 page, then BRIEFLY list other work hx to highlight how long you've worked there and maybe touch on customer service applications to your work.

Just being qualified for a federal job rarely gets you employment.  Unfortunately, the federal system is full of nepotism and favoritism.  It helps to know someone in the know or be prior military.

It took my girl about 3 months to get in. They don't make enough money for me to do all that work though.
