Applications for the 2024 U.S. Digital Corps cohort are now closed. Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to apply early as there is an application limit in each track that may cause applications to close before the deadline. Late applications will not be accepted and all applications submitted before applications 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.
Shortly after the deadline, all eligible applicants will receive a short project-based assessment to complete. The assessment is track-specific and will take no longer than two hours to complete. You will have approximately one week to submit the assessment.
In parallel, up to three pages of your resume (two pages of experience and one page of education) will be reviewed. Both applicant resumes and project-based assessments will be reviewed by subject matter experts in the track that you apply in.
If your project-based assessment 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 project teams 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, a GSA HR specialist will call you with a final offer. At this stage, GSA HR and the Digital Corps team will confirm your 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.
2024 Fellows will most likely start in August 2024. The exact start date will be announced during the selection process.
