The Starting Point: Your Top 10 List of Accomplishments

The entire SES ECQ Writing Service will begin with your Top 10 List of Accomplishments (that you MUST draft) and/or your own first draft of your ECQs if available.  Our book, The New SES Application has 3 samples of Top Ten Lists for SES Candidates.

Use a clear step-by-step method that was refined over 10 years in author Kathryn Troutman’s 2-day SES workshops, and proven to work hundreds of times in the classroom. Along the way, you’ll find excellent “before and after” samples of the application pieces. Includes the key steps involved in developing the SES application: writing the ECQs, TQs, Five-Page SES Federal Resume, and Executive Cover Letter (if needed), as well as using the required Challenge-Context-Action-Results (CCAR) format for SES narratives.

Other Top Features of the Guide include:

  • Presents a fabulous step-by-step formula for preparing the SES application refined over 10 years of workshops and work with hundreds of applicants.
  • An overview of the Senior Executive Service application process, including where to find vacancies, SES salary information, and an explanation of the various types of qualifications you’ll need to meet to be successful.
  • The Leadership Journey graphic allows you to do a visual check of whether or not you’re at the SES level.
  • How to adapt the Accomplishments into the required Executive Core Competencies (ECQs) narratives and make sure that you are covering all the required areas.
  • Two outstanding SES case studies in the book give you samples for the Executive Cover Letter, 5-Page SES Federal Resume (Paper and USAJOBS), Top 10 List of Accomplishments, Technical Qualifications, selected ECQs, and CCAR Format Accomplishments.
  • The Lessons Learned chapter covers the reasons OPM rejects ECQ statements* based on actual rejection letters.
