The CERT Program strives to hire candidates who are not only qualified technically, but also who will flourish in our organizational environment. Our employment
process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months before a final hiring decision is made. Below is general information about our hiring process.
Applicants interested in a CERT job opportunity must apply through
Note: All applicants must be U.S. citizens and eligible to obtain a security clearance.
A technical recruiter reviews all resumes for minimum education and skill requirements. The technical recruiter then forwards qualified candidate resumes to the hiring
manager for review and further consideration.
A member of the technical staff conducts a phone screen with the candidate to evaluate whether the candidate has the qualifications necessary to meet the job
To help with the hiring decision, qualified candidates are invited to the CERT Program for interviews with the technical staff. All technical interview candidates are
required to give a 30-minute technical presentation, which is followed by a 15-minute question and answer session.
The goal of the on-site interview is twofold: it provides the candidate with a comprehensive understanding of the position and of the CERT work environment, and it
helps the hiring manager better understand the candidate's ability to manage job duties and responsibilities.
Offers are extended to the best candidate for the position. All offers are contingent upon the successful completion of background and reference checks.
