Written by Diane Hudson Burns and Kathryn Troutman


Attaining a position with the Senior Executive Service (SES) may be a culmination of many years of leadership experience gained in corporate America; or climbing the ladder through civil service, being groomed for SES—perhaps even completing an SES candidate development program.

Executives will be needed as current SES executives retire in the following three years. These positions pay up to $179,000 yearly. The new updated SES application will give you need-to-know information on any format for your SES job application.

This book was written in a user-friendly, systematic manner to help you understand the nature of the SES, the process of applying for SES positions, and the proper way to develop and write your SES/ECQ application and prepare for the interview process, with a target of helping you reach your aspiration of attaining an SES position or positioning yourself to work toward your ultimate goal of reaching SES.

A comment from one of Diane’s clients after working on her Executive Core Qualificatons (ECQ’s) and receiving two SES offers:

“You helped me transform my ECQs into a superb package. You also helped me attain a personal goal. I have been dreaming of this moment for 25 years. Thank you again for your professionalism, superb expertise, guidance, and perseverance. I could not have done it without you.”

“It is apparent to me that they have the experience, and they understand the process. You can rest assured that if anyone knows the process, Kathryn and Diane do.”
