Answer E to all the questions and hit all the key words in your résumé. They don’t know you can tie your own shoes if you don’t put it in there.


Info sec is almost entirely covered by vets in the DC area. At my agencies when I was a fed and anecdotally from hiring manager friends at other agencies, vets block out non-vet applicants via vets preference for the overwhelming majority of info sec positions.


Everything on the questionnaire has a correct answer, even if it seems ambiguous. As in if you say that you've done a task independently but the answer was leading a team in the task, that's a point off. So you have to figure out what's appropriate for the level and document it word for word on your CV.
