SES Applications for the Serious Applicant
An SES application is like no other; however, our team of senior writers is extremely successful in landing interviews for our clients, and ultimately passing Office of Personnel Management (OPMs) review.
When developing an SES Application, we work in three phases of development, in compliance with our ISO 9001:2008 quality process. It is as follows:
1. Information collection and interviewing
2. Drafting and discussion
Our SES Process Is ComprehensiveOur process takes both our writers and clients through a discovery, organization, consultation, writing, editing, and review process, unlike any you’ve ever been through. Our process is comprehensive-as it should be for the SES. We ask you to supply everything you possibly can documenting the past 10 years of your career. Upon receipt of your career documentation, your assigned expert SES writer will conduct a needs analysis and will begin to query you, via email and telephone, about particular elements that will help build a solid case of evidence of your qualification.
We then move to the drafting and revision period. This revision period is offered for 14 days after the receipt of your initial draft delivery.
"Both my writer and career coach are world class. I'm a retired Major General and have had lots of execs, aides, and secretaries -- and these are outstanding! Both had a comfortable and familiar way of communicating that was very effective and their system (especially Lee during the writing phase) of back-and-forth reviews made the project effortless but also better than I could have hoped for. They have earned my sincere appreciation."
-Maj General "Hoot" Gibson
"Was one of four people selected to interview for the SES position. Waiting to hear results. Meanwhile I have been the acting Director, and have received numerous accolades from the DISA Director...will let you know how it turned out...BTW my SES package was rated the best overall. Thanks. "
"Ms. Adams I would like to take this opportunity to convey my sincere gratitude to Lee Kelley for the phenomenal service he recently provided. I came to Lee after first attempting to work with another company for over a month with no results on my SES resubmission package to the Office of Personnel Management. With roughly two and a half weeks left before the final deadline to resubmit my SES package, I desperately needed help. When I first spoke to Lee his calm demeanor, confident manner and encouraging manner immediately calmed my fears and addressed my frustrations with the former company. His assurance that he could work with me on the project even with the limited time was not only refreshing but gave me hope that the ultimate outcome could be successful.
I told Lee I was putting my career in his hands and believed that if it was God's will this would work out. Lee was diligent in his efforts to meet my expectations and kept in constant contact with me to assure me he was working hard on my behalf. Not only did he meet my expectations but he exceeded my wildest dreams! Lee's herculean efforts were instrumental in the successful resubmission of my SES package and my current appointment in the SES Corp. I am absolutely convinced that absent his direct intervention this would not have been possible! The consummate professional, Lee epitomizes the can do spirit this nation was built on. I am honored to have met this gentleman who gave his word, delivered on his commitment, and did so in record time when others certainly would not have accept the job because of the enormity of the task at hand. Lee's writing prowess and conviction are particularly noteworthy!
Lee is absolutely the best of the best and should be elevated at the very earliest opportunity! I would be honored to refer Lee and your company to anyone seeking real results by a professional who genuinely cares about people and not money! On behalf of my family and myself, please convey our collective gratitude to a gentleman who is truly talented and genuine in every sense of the word! If you have questions or would like to speak to me directly please do not hesitate to give me a call It would be my pleasure to speak to you. Regards."

Our Writing Process and the Federal SES Hiring Process
Based upon on two decades of expertise and knowledge, we take the lead on writing the entire SES presentation, from scratch, in a fully interactive partnership in three phases of information collection, documentation development, and revision. We have written literally hundreds of SES presentations (thousands since 1986), have been selected to present seminars and workshops on this topic. Additionally, many federal agencies hire us to assist with their most difficult cases in achieving approval from OPM on selected candidates ECQs.
Using a credible, successful, and accredited professional writing service such as ours is an investment in your future and as good a guarantee of success as you can find without a guarantee (because, of course, we can’t guarantee you the job due to the many variables outside the resume outside our control.)
We are quite simply the best in the business and hire only the best writers. They are professionals who make their living writing Senior Level/Senior Executive Service applications, which is a niche craft in and of itself. They are vetted, tested, and trained extensively and then undergo a six-month mentorship program. No one else in this industry goes to the extremes we do to keep our finger on the pulse of federal hiring.
