The One Page Profile|
The PROFILE is a one page snapshot of your skills, abilities and accomplishments. It is a professional presentation of you; it is a writing sample; and it is a "commercial" to create interest and demand for you.
It does NOT replace the Federal Application. It does NOT replace the SF-171, the OF-612, or the Federal Resume. It does NOT contain all of the compliance information required by the OF-510. It is NOT to be used by itself to respond to a vacancy announcement. It will NOT get you certified or best qualified through the Merit Promotion Process.
The PROFILE is an effective marketing tool to introduce yourself to others. It should be brief, clear and concise. Today's managers do not have the time or the inclination to search through an SF-171 to discover what your abilities are. They want something short, succinct and to the point. People want to evaluate your writing ability. The PROFILE gives them a meaningful sample of what you can say in just a few significant words.
The PROFILE is a "mega" business card that is effective when making cold calls, networking with colleagues, or preparing a Federal Application Package. It can be used in premarketing oneself for task forces, teams, details, career development programs, promotions and positioning for a new job.
The PROFILE will help you focus on what you want to do and what you can do. It will help you speak more confidently about yourself and in marketing yourself aggressively. It can help you in determining your marketability. You will be able to determine if your particular skills, knowledges and accomplishments are in demand.
The PROFILE should contain the following information:
The statement of the PROBLEM, the ACTION you took and the RESULTS. State the impact of your work in quantifiable results.
Writing a PROFILE is hard work and may take many hours to complete. The counselors at the CDRC are available to critique your ONE PAGE PROFILE.
