A Winning Format – the Outline Format™

Human Resources Approved!

Kathryn Troutman conceptualized and has developed the popular OUTLINE FORMAT for writing all of our federal resumes. We have received kudos from human resources specialists who say that our format is easy readable for finding the relevant information in the resume. The Outline Format is also recently highlighted in the all new Dept. of Labor Employment Workshop Participant Guide (Transition from Military to Civilian Workforce) from 2013 – Page 177 gives information about how to write the federal resume in the Outline Format.

We strive to make sure that all of the finer points of our resumes are consistent between our different writers, including page length, text formatting, presentation of accomplishments, use of headlines, writing style, and more.
