Program Analyst Interview

Program Analyst
Stuttgart (Germany)

I applied online - interviewed at US Army in January 2012.

Interview Details – USAJOBS is the primary path for employment with the US Army in Stuttgart. The resumes are long, sometimes 10-15 pages, and the time from application to hire can take as long as five months.

Interview questions are NOT behavioral. Instead they test your knowledge about the position you are applying and some basic questions such as "tell me about yourself?" I applied for 20+ jobs, was found qualified for 18, received eight interviews and seven offers. All interviews follow the same script beginning with tell us about yourself. Remember you are going against transitioning military personnel who have never had an interview. Interviews ae 30-45 minutes via phone or panel.

Interview Question – How would you build a IAMD curriculum?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – NO NEGOTIATION. You are Step 1.
