Good morning,

I learned that I was referred for an 1102 position in the DMV area. I wanted to get some feedback about this from others in the know. I do a lot of contract work in the civilian world and am hoping to make this leap as smooth as possible. Any insight from someone in the series already would be great!

Thanks,

Hello,

We are happy that your resume is such that you are making the cert; however this is a reason you should keep applying until you receive a firm offer, even a conditional offer/tentative offer is no reason to stop searching.

We appreciate your interest in the Security Administration position (GS-0080/12) in organization SECURITY MANAGEMENT DIVISION (LP021) and advertised under vacancy announcement HQ20C0023. Your resume was referred to the selecting official for consideration, but another applicant was selected for this opportunity.

I get that nothing is set in stone until the start date and all the hiring paperwork is completed. I am looking for insight into the roll with the department.

For this job series you're going to be doing a lot of training and a lot of reading the FAR (https://www.acquisition.gov/browse/index/far). Much of the work you'll do involves drafting documents, doing market research, interfacing with customers, answering questions, and interpreting/enforcing contract terms and requirements. It's a series that going to have a lot of periods of downtime cycling with periods that you'll be utterly overwhelmed. It's definitely a series with on-going and continuous learning, don't assume that experience with buying stuff for the commercial sector will translate smoothly over to buying stuff for the Government.
