    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed 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

      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.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (Fort Belvoir, VA).

    A panel of four interviewers asked questions verbatim from a written list. The panel was friendly but very formal. There were four questions, one for each panel member. Each of the four panel members wrote down everything I said. The interview lasted 30 minutes so there was little time for discussion or establishing rapport.
