If you apply to a job announcement for a hiring event, your resume is submitted to a hiring manager for review. If you meet the necessary requirements, the hiring manager will schedule an interview during the event. Hiring events are typically located at hotels or scheduled virtually and last three to five days.
After the event, selected candidates will receive conditional job offers and start the security clearance process. If you are not selected, we encourage you to apply again. We may give you feedback and tips from your interviewers.
