Federal Senior Executive Service

Get all the support you need to land a senior executive service (SES) position with the Federal Government. YES Career Coaching & Resume Writing Services is the nation’s top-rated company for USAJobs-style federal resumes and essays.

Serve at the Highest Levels of Leadership

Are you ready to serve the nation as a member of the elite corps of senior Federal Government executives? Are you passionate about the mission of an agency, and do you possess impeccable executive core qualifications (ECQs) in all 5 key areas?

If your answer is “yes,” now you want to meet the demanding requirements to put together the most competitive federal resume, essays, and assessments.

Of over 1.5 million U.S. federal government employees, there are only 8,000 members of the SES. That means you’d be in the top one-half of one percent. But at any time, only a small fraction of those positions are open.

The competition, both from within the Federal Government and from private sector executives, can be fierce. Who has the most impressive track records in leading change, leading people, demonstrating business acumen, building coalitions, and being results driven?

 That’s what you need to demonstrate in your executive core qualifications (ECQ) essays, not to mention your federal resume.

What Our Federal Senior Executive Service Package Offers You

ECQ essays are always required for SES applications. Most SES applications also require statements that demonstrate your technical qualifications (TQs), professional technical qualifications (PTQs), and/or mandatory technical qualifications (MTQs). The Federal Government prefers the formula Challenge, Context, Action, and Result (CCAR) for giving examples.

When we first get your materials, our client success staff will check that you meet the requirements of the SES position for which you are applying.

Our SES package also includes collaboration with one of our federal resume writers, who will closely examine the position's requirements, duties, qualifications, and assessment requirements. After making a keywords list and comparing it to the information you have provided, s/he will interview you either orally or in writing.

Armed with the interview information, the writer will be able to show how you are a good fit so that you score highly and will be referred to the hiring leadership.

Your writer will draft your federal resume and as many as 10 pages of essays. (You may, of course, purchase more pages a la carte if you need or want to.) Before you submit your federal resume and essays, the entire package will undergo editorial revisions until we and you are fully satisfied.

How Our Services Help You Land the Position

The professional federal resume writers at YES Career Coaching & Resume Writing Services apply the guidelines and requirements of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Federal HR professionals have stated they love our federal resume format, which makes it easy for them to find the qualifications they need.

Many of your competitors may have also positioned themselves for the same opening. You can ensure your superior visibility by having us provide a LinkedIn Profile based on your SES resume. You can then populate this with recommendations that support the claims you make about yourself in your application.

Once you have documented your leadership experience in your resume and LinkedIn profile, you will be invited for agency interviews. Are you ready to win the hiring panel there?

You want to make sure to train and have a mock interview, leveraging our Interview Aikido technique. Interview Aikido will enable you not only to address the interviewers’ questions but also psychologically influence them to consider you the most suitable candidate.

With our Interview Aikido service, you will have an hour of private coaching from YES President Katherine Akbar on your mock interview. This includes frank feedback on what you are doing well, what you can take up a notch, and how.


They were able to eloquently put my thoughts onto paper and put it in a logical and meaningful manner that was very beneficial. They were able to tell my story, which is something I’ve struggled with. They were very patient with me because I’m very busy, and they turned my documents around quickly. I would definitely recommend YES to others looking for SES positions.
