Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Washington, DC Dec 2011 – Reviewed Feb 3, 2012
Interview Details – This is a typical government position. I applied through USAJOBS.com and was called in for a series of two interviews. I worked in the Agency as a contractor before I applied, so I had some inside information about the DoT.
Interview Question – Tell us about your experience. Answer Question
Accepted Offer – Reviewed Oct 1, 2012
Interview Details – They asked if I was planning on going to graduate school and I said yes, I might apply to law schools or business schools. They didn't like that answer as they want you to stay for awhile.
Interview Question – So they put me in Grant Specialist instead. After a few years, recruited me to the Contracts side. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – they offered a GS 7, which was a repeat of what I'd already worked, as a Research Analyst, but I took it and went up the ranks quickly. Sometimes in the fed govt you have to take a downgrade to get into a more profitable series. Keep the long run in mind.
