    Anyone Been Updated Yet?

    Has anyone's application been updated on USAJobs since the November 6th closing? I figured it would be a slow process with Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I was just curious if anyone has had any contact since those jobs closed?

    I have been checking the pages and also my USAJobs and there hasn't been any updates from anyone yet. I would have thought they would have pulled the "Lets send out notifications on a holiday that way no one has to be here to answer questions" routine like last year. It was around the holidays or a holiday last year if I remember correctly.

    Congrats, I'm hoping to get a referred application soon! I'm curious though if they refer the applications as they review them or do they review all the applications for that area and then send out the referred/not referred?

    Completed a telephone interview today and all my references were contacted this morning as well.

    time line til now (applied 4 Nov, Posting Closed 6 Nov, switched to referred status 28 Nov, called to set up interview 29 Nov, Interview conducted 30 Nov)

    Interview recap

    1. Tell me about yourself?
    2. What equipment have you worked on?
    3. Why are you interested in this position?
    4. Why are you interested in this area?
    5. Was I considered a subject matter expert on any of the equipment I maintained?
    6. Do I have any questions for him?

    ( I asked about geographic area covered, # of each pieces of equipment maintained and their reliability, What is the manning allocation for the site, what is the current manning level, is there enough work to keep everyone busy, are most people happy there and get along, if offered and accepted when would I likely start, is there anywhere good nearby to fish)

    The interviewer seemed to have read my complete resume'. (Which I appreciated)

    Good Luck to everyone!!

    You could always use this approach during your interview, courtesy of comedian Steven Wright:

    I was in a job interview and I opened a book and started reading. Then I said to the guy, "Let me ask you a question. If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?" He said, "I don't know." I said, "I don't want your job."
