US Foreign Service Officer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview


The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at US Department of State (Washington, DC) in March 2010.


9-10 month process, but once you schedule your oral assessment test, it is approximately a 3-4 month process. Group exercise stresses cooperation and being able to follow directions and complete the task on time. Case management is relatively difficult, exercise stresses time management and ability to wade through lots of irrelevant material and boil the facts down. Individual interview fairly standard, probably the easiest part.
