It depends who conducted the investigation in the first place. The U.S. Intelligence Community doesn't always coordinate with its membership. Assume that the process will be start from scratch and then you'll feel better if it happens to be approved sooner. Also, the polygraph isn't difficult for them to arrange. They hook you up to it, you sit there for an hour, put on your shoes, and walk away. They don't tell you if you passed or not, so if you're ever called back... assume that you passed.

Just because it isn't difficult for them to arrange doesn't mean it will be scheduled soon. Oh and somebody else reported that they had to go to CPC twice because for some reason they couldn't schedule everything for the same day.

Not to disagree with the esteemed Kali but if they think your investigation is even close to being acceptable, I think they'll take it. If it is only about a year old, I think it will work. But don't take that to mean it will go quickly.

Hey all, long time lurker, first time poster here!

Finally received my cleared e-mail after a long, lengthy process. Here is my timeline for the Information Technology Career field

Applied - 4/2020
Position closed - 4/2020
Interview - 8/2020
CJO - 8/2020
1st Drug Test - 8/2020
Forms Submitted - 9/2020
BI Interview - 10/2020
CPC - 3/2021
2nd Drug Test - 8/2021 - due to being a year since I receive the CJO :-/
Cleared e-mail - 12/2021
FJO - TBD

I'm currently working with a consulting firm and have been anxiously waiting to make this Federal move for an extremely long time. The CJO I received included a recruitment incentive, which to me is icing on the cake. I would expect not to wait too long, but I know anything is possible and I haven't seen a lot of IT Career field posts here. Any advice as to how long I may be waiting for a FJO?

Really just a test post, checking to see if it will let me post a reply including a quote

Well that worked. As for FJO's for the IT career field, seems like they are always scrambling for people but who knows. You are correct, we don't have a lot of data on this career field on these forums. At this point a hiring manager with an actual vacancy has to pick your resume out of the stack.

I actually received a call from a section chief and deputy yesterday, they were inquiring about how long I had been in the pool and assured me the phone call wasn't an interview lol. They did indicate that they were vetting my resume and would be sharing it with other hiring managers, so this sounds promising to me *fingers crossed*

Congrats! How long exactly have you been in the hiring pool? And what's your career field again? I forgot.

Analysts usually don't have to wait in the Hiring Pool more than a few weeks or maybe a few months before receiving a FJO. Do you know why you had to wait over four years? Because that's just insane. And I thought that I had to wait in the hiring pool forever.

TBCH I don't know and don't care, lol. I'm just glad I got it. The only thing I can think off is that people kept moving to other agencies or simply lost interest. They kept calling me from time to time asking me if I was interested, and my answer was always "Yes, I'm still interested." I just kept grinding on my job and taking care of my family.

How many foreign contacts did you have? Did it significantly impact your processing time?

I will be reporting 3 contacts from school that are not close but we work together often, I'm a little worried that my processing time will be lengthy.

Hello all!

I currently have a DOD TS clearance that was adjudicated in December 2020 (12/2020). I just received a CJO from DIA and was wondering if my TS would be reciprocated by them since it is already a DOD clearance. During my interview one of the panel members said it would be faster for me to receive my clearance then "someone off of the street", and that I would have to get cleared all over again. When I interviewed for a position as a contractor for FBI they said my TS would be reciprocated and that I would be adjudicated for SCI separately. Anyways, I wanted to ask in here to see if that was the case and since a lot of you have experience with this kind of thing.

Thanks in advance!

Someone here, told me a while ago that the manner in which the agency brings people in differs.

Some people are waiting 3 months some longer. It depends on the agency's needs. As long as you are putting down you foreign contacts, you are fine.

Just keep grinding. Do your work, pick a hobby and keep going about your life. Contact them every 3 to 6 months with an resume update.

Congrats on your FJO. It's mind blowing to me how long your process was. You applied a month before me but I will hit my 5 year mark in April and just actualized my promotion to GG-14 in November. Best of luck.

Well that did not take long at all. Just received a call back from the section chief that he put a bid out for me. Now waiting for OHR to reach out
