    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at US Department of Homeland Security in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Easy, technical questions from non-technical people. Interview was more focused on how I would fit in with the team and my ability to make contribution given the complex political landscape. Interview was one hour and at varies times I was told that the most frustrating part of this job would be to know that the employee is right but that the right thing is not what DHS but the politically appropriate thing. It was discouraging to hear that in an interview.
