Comment from a Training Coordinator of a Ten Steps to a Federal Job workshop: "Leigh, one of your class participants called and she went on and on aThat she spoke very highly of you."

The enlightening Ten Steps Workshops can be offered in a number of formats and lengths. The most effective way of presenting the entire scope of the Federal Job Search is in a two-day workshop for groups of 10 to 20 jobseekers. The two workshop days can be consecutive, or if they are separated by several days, the jobseekers will have time to complete homework assignments (such as writing their Federal resume and finding announcements using the techniques they learned the first day.)
