    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Homeland Security (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview took place with a total of three interviewers. The process consisted of rapid fire questions rotating from each interviewer. The interview took place in a conference room. The interviewers were very pleasant and extremely professional. It was important to have a solid working knowledge of FEMA aid programs and the means of administration.

    Interview Questions

    • They laid out a scenario and asked how you would handle it. Also asked if I had a working knowledge of certain Microsoft products. There were additional questions about my strengths and weaknesses. Teamwork and ability to work within a team was a key point.   Answer Question
