Contract Specialist Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Navy in October 2009.

Interview Details – The Navy has had shortages in the acquisition career fields so since I already has experience in this area it was a matter of gettin gmy resume in front of the right people.

She referred me and then about a month later I received an interview.

Interview Question – There were questions about some Navy specific programs such as NECO, etc. There were also questions about the CCR, DUNS.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase was fair. They came with an initial offer that I couldn't afford to accept and I graciously declined and they came back a month later with an offer that I could accept.
