SES ECQ & Applications Book Reviews

“The SES application process is very complex and changed recently, so I wanted to read about how to apply now. This book streamlined and explained the process in an easy to understand format. I was particularly interested in the Leadership Journey chart and as I read the chart, I was wishing that I had seen that information years ago as I moved up the career ladder. I learned that this process is a great basis for applying for GS 13/14/15 positions, so I will lend this book to my friends.”

“The case studies are a good visual and it describes the differences between the resume types – and I really liked the before and after examples.”

“I also liked that there are exercises, and samples of resumes, ECQ’s, TQ’s and keyword exercises as well as tips from the disapproval letters. This was a very helpful book!”
