KSA Preparation Do's

by fred 17. August 2010
KSA's are mandatory on most types of applications for government jobs. These KSA statements can make the difference between getting an interview and receiving a rejection letter.

Evaluate the requirements of the job you are looking at. Begin crafting a list of what you believe this job would need as far as KSA writing is considered. If the posting lists specific prerequisites for the job, note those down as well. When you have decided on all the important specifications, you will need to begin adding this information into your essays.

Take a moment and review the Do's for writing your KSA essays:

· Do list all the KSA's you have relevant to the mentioned job posting.
· Do list any experiences you have that are related to the job posting you are applying for.
· Do use proper grammar and spelling.
· Do write information so that it is clearly understood.
· Do keep your information in chronological order.
· Do mention special certifications, schooling and training.
· Do focus on what you are qualified to do, not what you cannot do.
· Do use words that show excitement, such as action verbs.
