“I Didn’t Get the Job, WHY?”

Time and time again, candidates spend hours working on developing
their federal applications for outdoor jobs, only to be
rejected or never make it to the interview round.

And then you think to yourself “I should’ve qualified for that position!”

I’ve seen and experienced the struggle and this frustration has been shared more often than not with applicants nation-wide. Why?

Sometimes it’s not because you are underqualified or that there is stiff competition, but rather a misunderstanding of the federal application process or the difference between a federal and private industry resume.

It’s a process that is often challenging and cumbersome for all that attempt to engage it. But don’t let that discourage you!

Life in the Wildlands can help improve your chances of getting
outdoor jobs through federal application and
federal resume development services!

 Becky’s knowledge and expertise of gaining employment with the federal government is invaluable.  After she went over my resume extensively,
I was blown away by her detailed edits and recommendations. She
was patient with me and explained everything with such passion.

 I never felt like a customer. I felt
like she was my personal mentor. In the end, she helped me get the outdoor job that I was striving for!

Becky’s vast knowledge of federal language, ability to easily communicate her vision to others, and attention to detail made her the perfect coach as I worked to seek federal employment.

I am confident if I had not sought her help, my application would not have been reviewed and accepted. 

After her expert coaching and advice and some revisions, I now possessed the perfect federal resume which landed me a job with the US Forest Service!
