Has anyone applied to this event?  I did, but still haven't heard yet about an invite.
 
Thanks!

Nope, nothing here either.  Based on how things have been going lately I am not expecting much!  

Edited to add, they did say we'd find out by the 23rd but I'm antsy. :)

If 15 out of 400 applicants get hired, we have roughly a 3% chance of being hired. Of course, 400 is my made-up number. The number of applicants could be much higher. I won't speculate on how many of us will get interviewed. But if anyone else feels comfortable giving it a go, I'd love to hear from you.

Hmm I talked to someone from the DIA at the Virtual Career Fair, they said emails should of went out last Friday. Of course it will probably be this Wednesday now.

I've decided to speculate about interview numbers after all. If DIA interviews five of us for every open position, it means 75 of us will be interviewed. If there are 400 applicants, we can say roughly 20% of us will be interviewed. It would be logical to assume, however, that applicants from MacDill AFB may be selected at higher rates than other applicants. That would lower the odds of interview selection for the rest of us. Remember: I'm an analyst, not a soothsayer. The above is speculation. Good luck to all of us!

Granted I last attended one of these 2 years ago, but it seemed like the interviews were just a formality for some offices. For several offices they're probably only intending to interview the one person (unfortunately this wasn't my experience). But I guess the fact that no one else has heard anything leaves a glimmer of hope...

Heard back from a reliable source today that this hiring event will almost definitely be extremely selective and competitive. I think two interviews per position may be a better estimate now. This means around 7% chance of getting an interview.

Your chance is based on a hypothetical number of applicants. 
 
I am still waiting and highly doubt i will be selected.  I tried for a hiring event in the past and did receive an email indicating my nonselection.

Are you sure the deadline to hear from DIA is March 23rd? When I applied, the deadline was Wednesday March 21. Thanks.

There were 2 announcements - one for analysts and one for admin/logistics positions.  The invite date for the analyst positions was 3/21, the other admin positions are supposed to hear by 3/23.
 
Oh well, better luck next time :)

I found a cached USA jobs announcement for the event. It says, for analysts, the deadline to hear about interviews is tomorrow, Tuesday March 22.

I would recommend that you check the dia site to check on the status of your application if you don't get an email.

Just checked DIA website. I'm still active. No email either. The deadline must be tomorrow.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was pushed to Friday since the admin announcement had a deadline of Friday as well.

I am officially a statistic.  I just received an email indicating I was not selected for an interview.  Good Luck to everyone else.
