I applied to Federal jobs a few years ago and had to write detailed essays in response to KSAs. I do not see this requirement now, but I still see KSAs in the announcement. Can you clarify what I need to do? KSAs - or Knowledge, Skill, and Ability statements - are short statements the government asks applicants to prove.  One of the most common KSAs is “Ability to communicate orally and in writing.”  Since Hiring Reform changes took effect on November 1, 2010, 96% of Federal agencies no longer require you to write narrative essays when you initially apply to a job. However, it is totally your responsibility to make sure you possess the required KSAs and that they are incorporated into your resume. Otherwise, you will be deemed not qualified for the position, not because you don’t have the skills but because you didn’t tell them you have the skills by incorporating the KSAs into your resume. We hope this information has been useful and will help you crack the code to your Federal job search.  Corliss Jackson FedJobResults.com
