Whoever is active here is waiting for the same to happen. For folks in the same area, we need a meetup if we all get selected.

Hello all,

I was told my a source that the external applicant will be called for an interview in April. Can anyone who current worked in the IT department confirm this. Thanks in advance.

Checking to see if any existing employees or candidates have any more updates to share. I was also trying to find a post from years ago from someone who described the various stages, like Qualifications under review, in real-life terms. IF anyone knows which post it was then can you share?

Any information is good information and seems like folks have gone quiet in this one due to lack of any significant activity from IRS

Sorry to hear that but there are other positions. I received an email for the following Announcement: number




Thanks for the kind words. The reason I shared is that if you applied for something and haven't received a TP4, then it could be a good thing.

Question: If you receive a Notice of Rating Category A email, is there a chance they will contact you either you have the position or not.

There is certainly a chance. But the rating is simply a step in the right direction to hopefully getting selected.

I am newly hired to the IRS and I will say that I didn’t realize hope many contractors there are. That’s your main competition. I personally was NOT a IRS contractor before getting hired. Since being hired, I am the only true external on my team in quite sometime. Many were previous IRS contractors. However, where I sit are a LOT of true externals on different IT teams. So it can be done. Stay positive.

You want to ensure your resume is at its best. My manager selected me for certain aspects of my resume that I could bring to her team. No matter what your IT expertises is, ensure it’s well written and highlights your experiences and knowledge. I would recommend your resume not be too long(10pages) or too short(1 page). If you get to the rating portion and are referred to the selecting official, managers are looking at lots of resumes to see who they want to select to be a part of THEIR team. Make sure your stands out because it may get overlooked. I also recommend having a professional summary on the top of your resume, not just the generic stuff, but something that may set you a part. It’s not one selecting official looking at your resume nor is it for one team. Selecting officials select who they feel can be a benefit to their team. Your resume, once referred to selecting official, is being seem by a few selecting officials for different teams.

It’s NOT impossible but competition is hard. This of course is just my opinion from what I’ve seen in my few short weeks at the IRS.

They just posted 62 positions for networking today.

Good Luck.

Hope you are enjoying your work there, taco. Can you let us know if you hear anything about the roster jobs that recently closed in March? I am guessing most of the hiring is complete but could be wrong.

All I know is that they’re “still hiring”. I would assume that the March openings have expired. Just in general, once a certificate is issued for referred candidates, as per OPM they expire after 90 days unless the agency puts in an extension. I’m not saying they didn’t get an extension, but I’d focus on newer openings or recent referrals. If you have a referral over 90days, it’s probably expired.

Thanks for the info. I received a few email today that I am in the Cat A pretty much saying the same thing. However, I received another email below saying this. It's similar to the Cat A email but some of the sentence is different to.
