Department of Defense


The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

I'm looking for a little clarity on this process and why this was requested.

I applied to 4 different positions over the past 3 or so months at 1 organization. I had an interview a few weeks back but have so far heard nothing. I also checked with one of my references and they did not hear anything either (nobody called them to check references).

I received the email recently from the place where I applied and the person identified themselves as an HR rep and asked to speak with my current HR rep.

I'm just trying to understand why that question would be asked. For this job it would require relocation and return rights.

Generally speaking, the circumstance you describe takes place after you've been offered the position. The 'gaining' agency's HR needs to communicate with the 'losing' agency's HR in order to arrange timing, benefits, all the matters necessary. Do try to connect the two offices - assuming you want the job.

Id agree with that but I figured it would come after a tentative offer. I haven't received that at all. I suppose I will just wait to see how it unfolds.
