Software Engineer Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at US Air Force (Hill AFB, UT).
In my own case, there was a job fair but it was not broadly or advertized. The interviews that took place during the job fair were preliminary, but I was asked in for a follow-up interview and then offered a job. There are online tools for any applicant to apply for a government job.
