    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Department of Treasury in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application through my school careers website and secondarily at USAJobs. While I initially wanted to serve in the Office of Economic Policy, my resume application was declined, but it was redirected to all other offices. Within a month, a manager from another office (who eventually became my immediate supervisory) contacted me via email and arraigned a phone interview. By the end of the phone interview we had scheduled a final interview for the week after, however, the offer for the final interview was rescinded two days later, as she called by to extend me the position.

    I applied online through USA Jobs and was contacted a few weeks lated via email for a phone interview. I went through two rounds of phone interviews. The first was with one person (seemed like an administrative assistant) and the second was with two people, a manager and an employee.

    Interview Questions
    • The first round was very straightforward. The second round had more difficult interview questions but none stood out as being ridiculously hard. A lot of them were just about my college experience and what I wanted to do in the future.   Answer Question
