If your BI began in August you should hear something soon! On an average, they take 6-9 months to complete, and sometimes longer depending on FBIHQ priorities...

I was asked if I wanted an OST (GS7) position but it was rescinded. I didn’t receive a FJO. Now I have to wait for another offer. Has this happened to anyone? FYI I have a masters but this position only goes to a GS 8

Is anyone starting to lose hope? I haven't heard any updates since I created my Approved for Hire profile in Oct.

If you don’t mind what was the position and where was it? You can PM if you feel so.

I'm definitely struggling to stay positive. I've been approved for hire for about 7 months.

That happened to me although I didn't wake weeks. You should reach out to the person that contact you and inquire about it

Hey everyone. So I just received an email informing me that I passed my background investigation after almost a full year since receiving the CJO. However the position is no longer available and I was given access to the "Approved for Hire Profile."

I am still confused about what the Approved for Hire Profile is and what that entails. Does anyone have experience with this and how it worked out?

The approved for hire profile lets you select up to 6 preferred locations. If one of those locations has an entry level position open up, they will be sent your info and can reach out to you for an interview.

Unfortunately, it's more waiting. I created my Approve for Hire profile in Oct, and I haven't received a FJO yet.

I finally cleared background after a year of being in the process but I’ve lost interest. Almost feel like I waisted my time but everything happens for a reason and I’ve moved on...

Timeline-

January 2021- Received email about interviewing ( I never applied for this program and I am not a student but they reached out for a interview I’m assuming because of multiple jobs I has applied for)
February 2021- Interview
February 2021- CJO
March 2021- Eqip/ Investigator interview
April 2021- Poly/Drug Test
May 2021- Poly Retake
June 2021- Reference check
January 2022- Approved for hire

Yeah, I feel like moving on too. I don't understand how we receive a CJO, but then it's no longer available once we complete the Background Investigation. The Approve for Hire profile is only active for a year. What happens when the year is over with no FJO?

You could always keep applying for other job postings on FBI jobs. I kept applying for other positions while I was in background for CHI so by the time my background was complete I had a few offers to choose from. I want to be in the FBI for the long haul so it was worth it to me, but depends on your situation.

Most of the jobs I see are for Current FBI employees, we can't apply for those jobs. In my case, the Open for the Public jobs, don't fit my background. I've been checking the Latest postings a few times a week.
