What conversations should I be prepared for?
After conducting your ongoing research for government agency and federal contracting positions for veterans, you can ask for details about job requirements. Some topics to consider are how the employer determines a strong fit, timelines they work with, and other questions that will clarify whether or not you’re a likely match for both the position as well as the culture.
