Hi everyone, the July hiring event is almost here, so I thought I'd start this forum for applicants to share their experiences, ask questions, and cheer each other on. (Other NGA and Federal applicants are welcome, too!) I applied for a GEOINT position as a Regional Geographer. My status still says "eligibility not determined" even at this late date. Not sure if that means HR is swamped and hasn't had time to update statuses (I assumed it would change if I was referred), or if I'm already out of the running. I guess I'll know for sure in a couple of weeks whether I've been selected for an interview, but I'm just wondering what other applicants have experienced so far.

Thanks, and good luck to all!

Lily_bart,

When did you apply? If it was a general hiring event (with, I assume, thousands of applicants) it may take up to 3 months between the day of applying and the actual call for an interview.

I applied in January and was called for an interview in the beginning of April ... Have no idea, though, when they updated my status to Referred as I had totally forgotten about this position and applied out of curiosity LOL
 
Good luck!

Hi RZ, thanks for replying and nice to meet you.

I've read the posts on the NGA April Hiring Event forum, so I'm familiar with what you and others have gone through so far. I applied in early May as part of the July hiring event (apps accepted April 18-May 13). Based on the timeline of the April hiring event, I assume that HR will call to schedule interviews in the first week of July, with interviews taking place at the end of July. I'm just wondering why my status is still "eligibility not determined" - I would think that interview selections would already be well underway given that HR has to call those people in a couple of weeks. From what I read in the April hiring event forum, it seemed that applicants had an update or two before they got the interview call.

Hey there, I also applied to the NGA hiring event.  I checked my status a few days ago (I check every week), and I was referred to the program administration careers opening.  I'm hoping to hear something back from them, since working for the government truly is what I want to focus my career on.

This is what my status page shows:

Entry Level Hiring Event - Program Administration Career Opportunities
Application Status:
HD Preliminary Screen
Status Reason:
Referred

Hi fedhopeful, thanks for sharing. Congratulations!

I'm in "Intelligence Analysis and Scientific Career Opportunities", and my application status is simply "applied" with reason as "elig not determ". If you've only been referred in the past week, perhaps the preliminary screens are underway and the system is gradually being updated. It gives me a bit of hope that I may hear something soon, one way or the other. In any case, good luck, and keep us posted!

Yeah, it was really recent for me so I'm sure that they're working on all that stuff now.  When I applied to the April hiring event, it at least let me know whether I was referred or not by the time people started getting calls for interviews.  

I hope that I can get called for an interview this time around, since I was referred and heard nothing last time...though it was for higher bands anyway compared to entry level.

I applied for this event along with the past 4 others (since aug 10). Really hoping I finally get an interview on this one considering I actually have a degree in hand now, instead of in progress. I have no idea why I can't even get an interview for Intelligence Analysis when I was recommended by an employee and a degree in Geography, Certificate in GIS, and minor in US History along with 3 semester of remote sensing classes and familiar with ERDAS Imagine and Definiens eCognition.

/crossfingers but not getting hopes up after almost 12 months of KC Final Screen non selections.

Wow, Creatre, that's so frustrating! I'd think you'd be an ideal candidate - at least worthy of an interview. Plus, you have an employee recommendation. If you're having trouble getting to the interview stage, that doesn't bode well for the rest of us : p. Hopefully, you'll be lucky this time now that you have your degree in hand. Keep us posted!

So its finally July.  Anyone else have updates on their status?  Hopefully starting next week, they'll start to schedule the interviews!  Big smile

My status changed to Referred early this week. So, I guess only time will tell what will happen.

I was referred earlier this week, too! I agree - we'll hear about interview selection next week. Good luck to us!

Anyone else noticing the NGA recruitment page has been offline for a week?

I am not sure what you mean by being "offline", but they just posted a few other positions on the 5th. As far as my applicant's status it still says the same "Referred"...

It was up the past few days when I checked.  Today is the first I've seen it down.

The site was up when I checked. My status indicates "Referred" even after 70+ days. I'm worried because the status definition says I should receive an online status withing 30-60 days from when I was referred.

Ah man, lucky!

I'm really hoping this one will finally go through for me, but not call yet. I thought it usually took longer between referred and interviewing, so not too worried yet.
