    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Phone screening: The conversation lasted about 20 minutes. The interviewer was blunt, very straightforward, and had little-to-no personality. I wasn't sure what to expect, but appreciated the brevity of the conversation. The interviewer seemed to appreciate the succinctness of my responses.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone screening: Expect to be asked about current world events, remote sensing, problem solving, the future of the GIS industry, and national security priorities.

      1 on 1 or panel interview: Expect to be asked your motivation for applying, your five-year career goals, what is your favorite book and why, basic problem solving scenarios (be sure to think aloud), and more questions about how GIS can help solve global security problems.

Today, exploration and mapping is the responsibility of the agency. A Department of Defense combat support agency, the NGA merges imagery, maps, charts, and environmental data to produce "geospatial intelligence" to provide support for US national defense, homeland security, and safety of navigation. Its data is used to enable rapid... More
