GSA is still including KSAs in their job announcements despite former President Obama’s directive regarding them. What happens if you address the KSAs with the following? Will my application automatically be kicked out?

“Former President Obama issued a memo on May 1, 2010 that addresses the use of KSAs in the application process. The memo now requires agencies to let applicants use résumés and eliminates the essay questions that many agencies required all applicants to submit. The memo orders agencies to "eliminate any requirement that applicants respond to essay-style questions when submitting their initial application materials for any federal job." As there is no guarantee that I will get referred for an interview or get hired for the position, I would rather wait to address these questions during the interview process.“

Got my answer to this. It didn’t get kicked out. I got referred.

I heard nothing after I got referred. However, that may not necessarily be a bad thing. We have trouble with them at our agency assisting program offices when ordering through GSA supplies.

I have applied for other jobs using this response. I’m still getting referred although I think the hiring managers are not calling me for interviews.
