I've been invited to the remote exam as well for the Laguna Niguel Office. Seems like many have been invited, I'm very curious to know what their 75 minute exam consist of.

Congrats!
I heard that it will be a few essay questions and you have to answer them in essay format, and will get graded based off your writing skills.

Thank you so much! and thanks for sharing this information, I was under the impression this was going to take place at their office, but I just found out it is remotely from our location of choosing were we have access to email and internet. So I'm excited and look forward to to their practical exam.

How did it go for you? Do you feel confident in your essay?
I wish I could have had an additional 10-15 minutes to make some edits but I was on a time crunch.

I felt really well about it, I received the email almost 10 minutes after 9am so I was rushing indeed. I actually proof read it before submitting it haha. Did you manage to get the full 2 pages? I was about 6 sentences to completing the 2 pages required.

That’s awesome. I received mine late as well. Honestly I didn’t reach 2 pages either. Mine was a little bit longer than a page and a half. Hoping for the best but just have to wait and see what happens. Good luck to you!

I interviewed for the ISO 2 position at the TSC on 08/19. I know others who interviewed for the same position a week prior to my interview, so I know they were sending the interview invites in waves.

I'm not certain if they are still sending them out.

Does anyone know if you have to go through the Background Investigation again if your last BI was adjudicated 3 years ago and you went to work for another federal agency and you are now returning to USCIS as an ISO?

I know that in general, the BI is good for 5 years if you stay with the Agency, but what if you leave and then comeback within the 5 year period?

Thanks,

Nick

I'm not sure how that would work. When I was going through the BI process I went to a site called clearancejobsblog.com. The people there are very knowledgeable about the process and I am sure they can answer your question.

I logged into my USA Jobs account yesterday morning and found that my status for the ISO 2 TSC vacancy changed from "Best Qualified" to "You've been selected!"
An "onboarding" icon now appears in the top right. I'm hoping this isn't an error. Hopefully I get a TO email next week.

Has anyone else checked their status lately that applied for that vacancy?

I just received an email with my tentative offer. You should check your email and see if you received one as well. I heard they sent them out for most people.

Best of luck!

Thank you! I hope others received some good news as well. If not, don't give up! More hiring will be right around the corner.
