JPRA is looking for the best and the brightest applicants to round out our team of skilled professionals.
Once you apply for a job at JPRA, here is what you can expect:
The time it takes to be invited to an interview is approximately 4-5 weeks after your status in USAJOBS changes to “referred”.
If you are selected for the position, expect to receive a Tentative Job Offer (TJO) within approximately 4 weeks.
Once your TJO is finalized, you will receive a Firm Job Offer (FJO).
The FJO will have your grade, step, duty location, and start date
Interviews will be either in person or over the phone.
Here is how you can prepare: Think about the STAR method when answering your questions – Situation: Set the scene and provide the necessary details. Task: Discuss your role in that situation. Action: List the steps you took to address the situation. Result: Provide the results your actions achieved.
Phone interview: If possible, try to be in a quiet place with no distractions. Have a copy of your resume and job description on hand.
In-person interview: Arrive 10-15 minutes early in professional attire. Each interview session lasts roughly 45 minutes and have a total of 7-10 questions.
In both interview formats, take notes and come prepared with questions, if any.
