    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Geological Survey.

    Interview

    Three months after submitting an application through USAJOBS I was brought in for an interview. The interview lasted two hours and consisted of a mix of technical and behavioral questions focusing on past experience as well as hypothetical situations.
