The FAI will unveil the new Ireland senior manager at a press conference in Abbottstown on Wednesday afternoon.
Dubliner O'Connor applied for the position, along with several well-known names from world football, and took charge of the friendly defeat to the United States and the 2-0 win over Montenegro in Tallaght.
Former England manager Hope Powell and Germany under-19 manager Maren Meinert were among those interviewed for the job.
"It is in the hands of my employers," O'Connor said following the Montenegro game.
"I sat an interview, but it is a very, very important position and I know the association are leaving no stone unturned to make sure they get the right candidate."
The new Ireland manager will be named at 3.30pm on Wednesday afternoon.
