Where are you in the process now with the government job? Have you received a conditional job offer yet?

If you are indeed a "Big Data" man with the credentials and experience to prove it, you should be able to get many offers, as "big data" is all the rage these days. It is no secret that DIA is running a major program called MARS (who knows what it stands for, its on the DIA public web site) that is supposed to be all about Big Data. But all the IC agencies (and most of the rest of the government) is struggling with "big data" as well.

For the sake of semi-privacy, let me just say I have a job interview with [gov] organization, happening a short period of time after my start date with this other company. Because of this, and the adjudication which possibly will happen thereafter, I am kind of in a mixed bag as to what will help/hurt me. I really want to work for this [gov] organization, but because of the high uncertainty of the job-market, immediacy of certain needs (fresh grad student-loans), and even if I am able to pass this job interview with flying colors: I am just trying to weigh my options, and not screw me over. The FJO I have is with an international organization, and I know the skills which I will be using will transcode/transfer over to the [gov] organization if I am able to move on after my interview. For larger perspective, I have applied to 450+ jobs since my last semester at university, so the investigator (if applicable) I know will be understanding if I perhaps inform them of such things. I just am worried about my new employer being immediately interrogated by this new revelation, when I did not mention I had been at XYZ-do-rey-me% of the process for this [gov] organization, during the interview process.
