    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FEMA in February 2017.

    Interview

    This was a first round interview conducted over the phone after an online application. The interview was conducted by a group of 5 junior level staff (my peers). A few hours later they informed me that I had progressed to submitting a writing sample--round two of three. I'm now waiting to hear if I made it to round three (interviewing with senior staff).
