Internal Revenue Service

As a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and as one of the world's most efficient tax administrators, the IRS role is to help the large majority of compliant taxpayers with the tax law, while ensuring that the minority who are unwilling to comply pay their fair share. (Source: www.irs.gov)

This forum will allow you to share and ask job-related questions about this bureau. This is NOT the place to ask tax questions.

I did for a couple of programming positions at one location in March. I did get an email that said I was highly qualified but that was it. Nothing since...The jobs are open for over a year.

I received 2 emails since last week that I was referred for two of the positions. I'm happy that there's some movement but I'm not going to get too excited about it just since things often change or get cancelled.

How long did it take and what state is it in?

Congrats. Unfortunately, none of the IT jobs are at my duty station. Ironically locally there is funding for free IT classes. Housing and transit costs are prohibitive to relocate.

GeorgiaPeach, First off congratulations!!!! Awesome news! May I ask what position(data management, policy, OS, etc.) did you apply for and what grades? The position I applied for still says "qualifications under review". When I emailed them two weeks ago, they said they were still reviewing applicants for the position I applied for. But to see that you've been selected, at least says that there is movement on this "IT Surge".

Thanks everyone! I'm located in Atlanta, GA. I applied for most of the IT positions in March when they opened. I was also referred for two other IT positions both of which closed on 3/16. Here's the timeline for the one I was selected for:

3/23: Position closed
6/11: Received email that I was referred to the selecting official
6/27: Received email with offer
7/2: Received email from HR that the effective date of my personnel action is 7/22/2018


Another person at my service center was selected as well from the same announcement but for a different area of IT located in Atlanta.

Thanks! I'm so excited to start this new journey. A change was definitely needed.

I applied for and was referred for these:
IT SPECIALIST (CUSTOMER SUPPORT) *6 MONTH ROSTER* 18CE2-ITB0353-2210-TR5T9 for grades 5, 7, & 9
IT SPECIALIST **AMENDED** 18CE1-ITB0362-2210-TR5T12 for grades 5,7, 9, & 11
IT SPECIALIST **6 MONTH ROSTER** (CUSTOMER SUPPORT) 18CE1-ITB0358-2210-TR5T11 for grades 5, 7, 9 & 11

I applied for some of the others as well but those still say either reviewing, qualifications under review, or received.

Congrats, GeorgiaPeach.

I applied to several of the announcements as well. I was referred to three of the announcements but have not received an offer.

What announcement were you selected for, GeorgiaPeach and for what grade? Do you know if you will receive training for the position?

Again, congratulations.

Yes, congrats to all!

I’d be curious to know out of the people referred, how many were internal.

Also, if there are any hiring managers or elevated positions that provide any feedback to outside hopefuls. I’ve heard that there are a few “waves” and I’m surprised that NONE of that information has made its way here.

I have a BS is in computer science and have many years experience in web based Java programming and DB etc. I work as a GS 12/13 software developer for DOD and these IRS positions were GS 9-12. I applied to 3 IRS positions in March, 2 were labeled Java Applications Developers another PC/Server & Web Applications Developer in WV but the status has not changed.

They are open for a year. Maybe they don't need someone yet? They had over 100 locations for the one position. I just picked the WV one since it's really close to where I live.

I wonder if I should get some cyber certs and try for the many cyber jobs the the feds have. I would probably have to start at a lower GS to get in. The Feds don't seem to hire many developers.

I'm really hoping to get one of these. I applied for the pathways IT specialist posting since I'm graduating with an AAS in computer programming in December. I already have an AAS in computer networking and a non-STEM bachelors along with various IT certifications and six months experience working as a network tech at a telecom.

Still, I think I won't even get referred. :-(

That’s great to hear. I hope they call you soon for an interview! The ones I applied for still say qualifications under review or received...I’m trying to forget that I even applied for them.

Good luck to you and all those that have gotten referred:-)
