Industrial Specialist Interview

Industrial Specialist
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Department of Energy in July 2008.

Interview Details – The US Gov't uses USA Jobs ( for job postings
- I applied on line.
- My application was screened by computer; top three applications are referred to hiring manager
- I received a phone interview with the hiring manager which resulted in a 1:1 interview.
- After the 1:1 interview, I was offered a position.
- The hiring process from the job offer/acceptance took 5 months before I was on the job. For an outside hire into the Federal Gov't this is typical delay.

Interview Question – No difficult or "HR" type questions. Questions were very straight forward.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Minimal, negotiating with the Federal Government.
