Important COVID-19 Update for NRO Applicants

May 2020

As we join you in the continuing precautionary effort to keep our Nation healthy, the NRO has implemented guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding social distancing and from the Department of Defense regarding travel restrictions. As a result, until further notice, the NRO will not be hosting in-person site visits related to recruitment and hiring. The NRO will continue to post job opportunities and invite you to participate in virtual job interviews using HireVue.

If you received a conditional job offer and were scheduled for an on-site visit or polygraph in March or later, you should have already been contacted by our scheduling team to cancel that visit. We will contact you as soon as possible to reschedule.

in the meantime, we will continue to work in the virtual recruitment environment, so if you recently applied to a job, we will continue to assess and provide you feedback. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we team to keep our Nation healthy and ensure we can continue to excel at our critical missions.
