I need help generating a successful response to federal job applications
. Does anyone have experience with third party services?

My first attempt at writing a federal application was unsuccessful. I think I was sufficiently qualified, but didn’t make the first cut. I've read previous ask mefi questions
and understand the exercise is as much mechanical as it is compositional. The books I’ve read seem to focus on the old school, rambling KSAs and not the new 2000 word USAJobs.com format. I’m curious if anyone has used third party services
for review and critique. Also, what are the realistic odds of a non-military, non-government person finding a professional federal job in the current economy?
