March 25, 2011 - As the federal government continues to run on a continuing resolution, what does this mean for individuals trying to get into public service? Are there jobs available? What about those who are already in the federal government and are looking to be promoted?

Federal employees need to do all they can to be as qualified and trained as possible if they are seeking a promotion. And those looking to start a federal career have to know how to properly write a federal resume and federal application.

Host Debra Roth is joined by career coach Kathryn Troutman of the Resume Place to discuss the current federal hiring outlook and how to land a federal job, including tips and tricks for getting hired and promoted within the government.
