Applications are closed. Applicants will be able to see their application status on USAJOBS after applying. All applications submitted before the application closed will be considered equally. If there are substantially more applicants than Digital Corps openings, applications that are not in the top category may be held at each stage of the process detailed below.
Up to three pages of your resume (two pages of experience and one page of education) will be reviewed by subject matter experts in the track you applied to. If your resume reflects the minimum qualifications for the position, you will receive a short take‑home assignment to complete.
The assignment will be track‑specific and take no longer than two hours to complete. You will have one week to submit the assessment, which will also be reviewed by subject matter experts.
If your take-home assignment meets the required competencies for your track, you will be invited to a phone interview. You should expect your interview to cover both technical and non-technical (behavioral) questions.
All interviews will be conducted virtually. Live captioning and other accessibility assistance is available for all candidates. If you require accommodations at any point of the application or hiring process, please contact GSA HR.
Veterans' preference will be applied to applicants who move forward after the phone interview stage.
Qualified candidates will have an opportunity to interview with U.S. Digital Corps host agencies and their project champions based on mutual interest and alignment of skill sets. Candidates at this stage will receive additional information about specific agency projects.
Upon consultation with host agencies, we will finalize agency placements and offers. As the Digital Corps operates within the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), the GSA HR team will make tentative offers to selected candidates. Tentative offers are contingent on passing a background check.
As your offer details will depend on your work location, we will work with you and your agency to determine your preferred work location subject to the position requirements and telework policies of your agency.
Our team will also set up calls for incoming Digital Corps Fellows to welcome you to the program and our community, and answer any questions.
Once you accept your tentative offer, you will receive an email from the HR onboarding system. You will need to login and accept your tentative offer. You will be asked to complete a series of forms and receive a USAaccess email requesting you to schedule a time to provide your fingerprints for your security clearance and complete an e‑QIP security questionnaire.
Once your e‑QIP has been initially cleared, you will receive an interim security clearance, and a GSA HR specialist will call you with a final offer. At this stage, GSA HR and the Digital Corps team will confirm your late June 2022 start date.
Note: We do not recommend you give notice or resign from your current employer (if applicable) until you receive your final offer with a confirmed start date from HR.
The exact start date for Fellows in late June 2022 will be announced during the final selection process.
