Can someone provide suggestions on how to crack a Fed job in Canada in CS ( Computer Science) domain. I was interviewed for CS-02 level for Veterans Affairs Canada and even cleared all the interview rounds. But then they say you have been added to a pool. If there is a position available they will reach out. Then why would they post a job if the position is not available, just wasting everyone's time, considering how ridiculous the application process is for fed jobs.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs in Mar 2021

Interview

Panel interview PBI questions - 12 questions but felt like 36 with multiple part questions. Questions using acronyms used internally made it challenging for general public and other questions that are so job specific make it difficult for those looking to expand their knowledge and population base to grow.

Interview Questions
  • Are you familiar with VHA and VBA resources available to homeless veterans? Please provide us with 2 examples of how you coordinated services for veterans with the VHA and/ or VBA.
  • Could you please define Housing First. Do you agree with this philosophy? Why or why not. Walk us thru the HUD definition of homeless and chronically homeless.

I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Louisville, KY)

Interview

Performance Based interview, usually 3 or more person interview panel. Occassionally all will be supervisors looking to hire for different positions. It's not usually too stuffy, but I cant speak for executive level positions.

Interview Questions
  • All questions are performance based so be prepared with examples of times you worked hard, went above and beyond, dealt with difficult customers/clients, and thought outside of the box. Answers should demonstrate what the situation was, how you handled it and what the outcome was.
