Please look me up. William Stanfill NGARecruitment.JimS: Matthew. That is diffcult to say because most positions are unique and timing is always important.

Samuel Hayek: Hi, I am a current GIS Specialist working for a government contractor. I have just over a year of professional GIS work and am simply wondering if I would be qualified for any positions within this agency, or any others for that matter. I would be seeking primarily entry level positions and there seem to be few, at best. I hold a B.S. in Geography with a heavy GIS concentration in school. Just looking for some direction as I have long been interested in working in intelligence as a career. Justin Frappier: looking for entrylevel cybersecurity/INFOSEC/Cyber forensic positions Jillian O - NGA Staff: Samuel, we fill our entry level positions through the repositories and through our internship program, as well as with individual openings
    • Justin Frappier: jilian O do you have OWF internship opportunities or do you work with vocational rehab or marymount university for internships i am being medically retired from the army i am in a warrior transition battalion and I currently intern at DSS, but I am unsure if there is going to be a position for me after the internship. I would really like that opportunity Jillian O - NGA Staff: Justin, I'm not sure what OWF is, is that like internships through the Wounded Warrior program? We do participate in that Jillian O - NGA Staff: If so, Joycelyn W would be the person to talk to, and you can find her in the mission support room Mark Otley: Operation Warfighter is a temporary assignment/internship program for service members that are convalescing at military treatment facilities throughout the U.S. brandonrizzo: To the NGA booth, I have 4 years experience in digital network intelligence analysis and a TS/SCI clearance with a Bachelor's Degree in Cyber-Security. I am wondering how long the process for hiring takes if considered for a position if I already have a clearance. Also, what is the earliest a military member who is transitioning out of the service should apply? Is there anyone I can speak with about potential job opportunities? Jacqueline Ward: I am interest in getting into a entry-level Systems Analysis or application developer position. I have no experience just classroom work. How can I transition into those positions with a MIS degree only? Jillian O - NGA Staff: Brandon, for external applicants the process would still take at least one to two months, if a position is currently open. We do sometimes hire in advance of attrition, and in that case the wait could be longer. Edward Boyd: I'm interested in the System Engineer opportunity. Work Role 13AD Report ID NIHR219. brandonrizzo: @Jillian O, is there a chance there is someone I can speak with about potential opportunities? NGARecruitment.JimS: Samuel Whether you are qualified for any particular position is difficult to say. It really depends on your particular skills and expereinces against specific openings. I recommend you review the repositories and apply to all that match your expirience, skills and interests. We will be posting positions for entry level geodetic surveyors, but you need to measure your experience against the qualifications. Jillian O - NGA Staff: Brandon, unfortunately I don't think we have a cyber representative here today brandonrizzo: @jillian, do you know if there is a virtual fair coming up that one will be at, or is there a chance I can be forwarded contact information?

Do you have a field office near St. Louis MO or any jobs in the area? NGASME.Alex: @Justin, NGA does participate in the Wounded Warrior program, but it sounds like you are already enrolled somewhere else. You would still be elibigle to apply for NGA positions, and you would probably be eligible for hiring under Schedule A (direct hire) if you had the right skills. Jillian O - NGA Staff: Jacqueline, some of our workroles do have education requirements but not all of them. Some of the ones you might be interested in, such as multimedia specialist, only have a two year degree requirement Ronald Morris: I am interested in Information System Security Officer or Information Assurance. Is anyone able to speak about the positions? Joel Calvo: Hello, does the NGA have any open positions in Florida? Jillian O - NGA Staff: Joel, not at the moment Joel Calvo: okay, thanks NGARecruitment.JimS: Brandon, to follow up on Jillian, if you will separating within the next several, I would apply now. The clearance process is only one part of the equation, so do not let that hinder your application. I don't think we have any Cyber fairs planned, but please apply to the applicable repositories, i.e., anything that you think fits. Jillian O - NGA Staff: Christopher, you will receive updates as the process continues, but it can sometimes take a while. We have offices in St. Louis and Arnold, MO brandonrizzo: @jim s., thank you very m uch Christopher Buechting: Perfect, thank you! Is there anything specific I can do besides wait? Mark Otley: @Christopher: Pray?

My degrees are in graphic/interactive design and I've crossed over into data visualization and analysis design work (links to my projects are on my uploaded resume...currently I'm working on a NASA/ISS project, fun stuff!). Anyway, these roles require extensive problem solving and analytic skills. Would someone with my background, skills, knowledge be considered for the Visual Information Specialist position, or are you looking more for candidates that are straight multi-media design? Thanks! Christopher Buechting: I would actually love to chat about the systems engineer position as well. Jillian O - NGA Staff: I'm not sure if we have any SMEs here right now that can answer more specific questions about the positions, I'll ask around Christopher Buechting: Thanks again Jillian Debra Hyres: Can my resume be analyzed to see what jobs best fit my skill set?
