    Contract Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Library of Congress (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied to the position on USA jobs. After about a month I got notified of a phone screening. This consisted of me demonstrating any knowledge I possessed on contracting principles. Afterwards I was able to ask a few questions.

    About a month later I got an in person interview in Washington, DC. The interview consisted of a panel of 3 gentlemen who each took turns asking questions about my past experiences. Not surprisingly, most of the questions revolved around my direct experiences with contracts, regulations, and communication skills. They were straightforward and asked follow up questions for clarification. Afterwards, the floor was to any questions I had. I asked several including what they thought about working for government. I then got the offer 2 months later.
