What to Expect After Applying

From first learning about a position to your first day on the job, here's what you can expect during the hiring process at FEMA.

Get Started

Step 1: Apply For a Job

Apply for a position at FEMA.

Step 2: Application Review

A Human Resources (HR) specialist will review your application.

Step 3: Referral

After reviewing your application, the HR Specialist will advise you via email whether your resume has been forwarded to the hiring manager for possible interview.

Step 4: Selection And Tentative Offer

If you are selected, an HR Specialist will contact you to extend a “tentative job offer.” The offer is “tentative” pending a preliminary background check.

Step 5: Background Check

As part of the preliminary background check, you will be fingerprinted and asked to complete the forms for a full background investigation.

Step 6: Final Job Offer

If you pass the preliminary background check a full background investigation will be initiated. In addition:

  • An HR Specialist will contact you with a final job offer
  • Your start date will be arranged

The full background investigation will continue after you start FEMA. You will be notified of the results of the full investigation when it is complete.

Step 7: Day One

All new hires will receive an email three working days prior to their first day outlining all the requirements for Day One.
