Interview Details

Applied for Program Analyst position at Washington, DC headquarters in October 2012 via USAJobs.gov. Interviewed one-on-one with Hiring Manager in December 2012 during their "Interview Week". Multiple groups within BLS were looking to hire Program Analysts however I only interviewed for one group. I received an offer from HR a week and a half later. I'm currently a fed at another agency and this was a status (internal) opening.

  • Technical questions regarding budgets, customer service, and administrative functions.
    Soft skills questions regarding communication skills and working in a team, these were asked in "behavioral interview" style.
