It is a different hiring pipeline.

Contact HR and ask if anything can be done. Odds are you will start from zero again.

There are about 30 different agencies that have intelligence people. Apply for all of them on USA Jobs.

I would assume it’s possible. I’d contact your applicant coordinator from your local FO. I will let you know the need is greater for agents so you *might* end up waiting longer before making it to Q. It looks like some SAs are being cleared in less than a year, whereas IAs from 2018 are still waiting to get to the academy since there are fewer slots for them each class. If you’ve taken both computer tests then you at least wouldn’t have to do those over. I don’t know if the interview itself is composed differently though, since they are different positions. So you may or may not have to start there.

Thanks! I am hoping it's not a big deal since I have been relatively healthy for 5 years now.

Also, another question, is the location on my conditional offer the one I am placed in? I heard you don't know until you get to the academy, but if it's the one on my letter that would be a relief.

My understanding is all SAs and IAs offers will say Washington DC because that’s the locality pay we’ll receive while at Quantico. You get your assignment week 5 of the academy.

Short answer: You can’t just switch to the IA process in the middle of your SA background.

If you’re considering doing IA as a back up, you should apply to the next vacancy (no idea when it is, but I heard maybe November). You can start the testing process for IA even if you’re in the background stage for SA. It’s an entirely different testing and interview process so none of your SA tests or interviews would matter. If your medical condition is a disqualifying issue, you will probably get dropped from the SA process long before you complete all of your IA testing and receive a conditional offer. So the question is: would the background/polygraph progress you’ve made thus far still be valid by the time you got a conditional offer for IA? I’m not sure and frankly no one at the FBI will probably be able to answer this for you in advance, you would just have to cross that bridge when you get to it and hope for the best. Being a bureaucratic government agency, it wouldn’t be surprising if they made you redo everything, but you’ll probably just have to wait and see.
