[Their] duties are wide-ranging, but [their] goal is clear: keeping America safe. (source: www.dhs.gov)

Clicking it I see a dashboard that looks like it could be used for uploading new-hire docs.

Does this mean I've been selected and will be extended an offer? I really don't want to get my hopes up, but I'm having a hard time interpreting it any other way.


It sounds like it to me, as well. Congrats!


Has anyone had an interview for or heard anything from the Tampa office regarding these two AO postings?


Announcement number
ASY-2021-0016
Open & closing dates
08/30/2021 to 09/03/2021

Announcement number
ASY-2021-0013
Open & closing dates
09/13/2021 to 09/17/2021

My status says Best Qualified-Referred on both but I haven't heard anything yet.

Thanks to everyone who is posting information and updates. This thread has been very helpful and informative.

I was supposed to hear back within three weeks on the final decision and that's come and gone. Not going to lie this anxiety isn't great haha. Just hoping I'll hear back by the end of today. I called the HR number and they made it sound like nothing is certain yet, so just a heads up to anyone who might be in a similar position, even with the onboarding tab it's still not a guarantee.

Any insight on the AO job, lot of the reviews and posts are years old.


How many interviews do AO do in a day?

How is the morale and job satisfaction today?


Is the AO job more complex and difficult then ISO, since both top out at gs12?

How does travel or circuit rides work?

Did anyone apply to the recent graduate position that closed on October 26? Kind of interesting how they're asking for experience for a recent graduate.

For those who have been hired or considered for AO positions recently, with out going into great detail for obvious reasons, whats your take on the online/teams interview?

Also, for those that have been hired, how do you like it and what has been the biggest challenge?

From the JA, it sounds like 6weeks ISO trng, then 6 weeks AO training and 3 weeks online trng unless things have changed

THanks,

Did you ever get an offer? If so, how long did it take?
