I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at US Department of Defense in January 2008.

Interview Details – It was fairly painless, I was very well prepared to go in front of the personnel conducting the interview. I had done research on the job prior to the interview, which gave me a "hand up" on others I was competing against.

Interview Question – You have been a Medic your entire career, why would you be a good Person for this job? What can your work as a Medic bring to the table?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is very little "negotiation" involved in the DoD hiring process. I was offered the position at the advertised pay rate and accepted.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at US Department of Defense in November 2007.

Interview Details – Questions sent 15 minutes in advance of the telephone interview; structured interview format but not behaviorally based; knowledge of the agency was obviously very important but could be excluding a number of very highly qualified candidates with the potential to bring new skills and perspective to the table; panel members not trained in interview process - quite evident as it progressed.

Interview Question – tell us a little about yourself   Answer Question
