KSA QUESTIONS ESSAY RESPONSES
1. Describe your experience/and or academics background and how your skills would contribute to the Agency's mission.
With the knowledge that the Agency seeks team members with strong research, technical and communication skills to support a broad scope of operations, I am confident that I possess the academic and professional background vital to assisting the DIA in achieving critical missions and objectives.
I earned a BS Degree in Economics in 2006, acquiring theoretical and applied skills in research and data analysis as well as knowledge in finance and business/administrative functions. My academic program also required an extensive amount of information gathering and both narrative and technical writing. Through my studies, I also gained solid statistical skills in multiple regression applications and ANOVA Tables.
Concurrent with and subsequent to my academic pursuits, I have held full-time and part-time employment in diverse industries. I believe my drive to work while earning my degree illustrates my commitment to achieving goals, an ability to effectively prioritize and multitask and a strong work ethic, qualities I believe will prove valuable as a DIA team member. Further, as evidenced by my diverse employment background, I am highly effective in rapidly acquiring new knowledge and adapting my skills to a broad range of responsibilities.
In 2007, I accepted a position as an Accounts Receivable Specialist with the American Psychological Association s Finance division. Demonstrating exceptional research and analysis skills, a strong attention to detail and quality and a solid understanding of accounting practices/principles, I proficiently manage billing, payment processing, reconciliations/adjustments, databases/records, and financial/management reporting. Applying my dynamic communication and interpersonal relation skills, I directly interface with customers to address inquiries and troubleshoot/resolve account problems.

I also offer strong administrative/clerical skills, which I have applied as an Administrative Assistant and Switchboard Operator from 2005 to present, providing quality support to varied programs and organizations. Of note, this experience includes a background with government employers; I believe this will be an asset as an employee of the DIA, as I am familiar with varied government-funded programs and agencies as well as operational practices and policies. Supporting this, I have been recognized with awards for my job performance and professional integrity.
As an employee, you will find me to be a self-motivated, resourceful professional who is equally productive and effective in both independent/minimal supervision and collaborative teamwork settings. I am highly adaptable, flexible and open to challenging opportunities and have consistently demonstrated a commitment to supporting my employers as a highly valued team member.
2. Explain why you are interested in a career with the DIA.
I am interested in working for the agency for both personal and professional reasons. On a personal level, I am inspired by those who commit themselves to ensuring the security and safety of our Country both locally and abroad, and would like to be a part of that effort.
Professionally, having earned my
college degree and gained some diverse professional experience, I am now
enthusiastically exploring an opportunity to launch a long-term, progressive
government career, and am eager to contribute to DIA operations while
simultaneously acquiring new skills and knowledge that will enhance my value as
an employee. I believe the DIA offers the opportunities I seek through its
broad-scope entry level programs and am confident that we could forge a
mutually productive professional relationship.
