Question: I applied for a defense industry job on January 3rd, 2012 with a major defense contractor but have yet to hear anything back. I know that I’ve got the skills for that position. What’s up?
Answer: Keep in mind the flow of money.
Defense contractors will advertise jobs EVEN IF they have no money to hire for those jobs.
The defense budget theoretically started funding stuff in October. The actual budget was not approved until December 31st. Throw in the New Year’s holidays and if you applied on January 3rd then it is just unfortunate timing ~ although it does not mean that you won’t still hear from the company.
It can take 4-6 weeks for federal money to begin showing up as expensible after the feds obligate it. That would be from now until mid-February.
Defense contractors will be reluctant to contact candidates unless they have money in hand and know that the contracted position that they are filling has a secure funding stream.
