I'm in the same boat as a lot of you. Background wasn't finished in time for the Summer of 2017 internship, said that there might be an opportunity to do it during the school year. They never got back to me on that and now I'm waiting for my background to finish so I can hopefully do it this summer.

I currently have no FJO and have not been emailed today. My status has not changed online since the CJO.

My status hasn’t changed since my CJO in November nor have I received a FJO but haven’t gotten the BI email yet about not being done in time, but my POC did reach out last week saying that I was in the final stages of my adjudication and FJO.

Ok so it does sound as if you guys are probably going to receive an FOJ before the June 22nd end processing date. But I do wonder- I was reading through last years post and they extended the final date to receive FOJs until July 8th- do you guys think there is any chance of something like that happening? I've been trying to contact HR and other members of the internship program's staff but I still keep just getting voicemails. Has anyone gotten through to HQ and been able to talk to someone about the BIs and/or fall internship possibilities?

I did not get the email from today. I only got the one last week saying I could potentially get an FJO for the 25th if things are done in time. Fingers crossed.

Anybody here start today willing to give a very brief rundown of what they do at orientation (issue ID's, assign units, etc.?)? I want to know before going. (pm works too)

For those who tried reaching out to HR representatives at HQ today, you probably did not get a reply as all of the members in charge of HR that were in contact with interns and sent out FJOs in their respective regions were at the orientation all day handling on-boarding (lots and lots of paperwork and briefings) for new interns. I don't think you'll get any replies until Wednesday at the earliest but from their commentary today, it did seem like they were still working out lots of inefficiencies (due to sheer volume of new employees) in their intern on-boarding and processing system. The second orientation on the 25th is definitely happening so I can only say I wish you luck and to be patient for just a while longer!

I would like to congratulate all of the 2018 FBI honors Interns. Best of luck to all of you.
I have a question for all of you. Were any of you who received FJOs a freshman when you applied (Now a rising Sophomore)?
Thanks!

I asked a couple of the HR reps today at HQ (second and last day of orientation so they were mostly with interns again today with intermittent breaks to do their own HR work) about progress on the second wave of FJOs for those who will begin interning on the 25th. They said most of them haven’t been sent out yet due to how swamped they were with orientation and on-boarding and they would most likely begin sending some of the second wave of FJOs out tomorrow at the earliest. They’ll all be pretty much swamped and otherwise unavailable for most of next week due to travel for work. But for those expecting offers, they should be coming out within the next week and a half.

Thank you for the information! Is the orientation held in DC or in your assigned FO?

Interns assigned to HQ, the Washington FO, Quantico, and various FOs in Virginia attended orientation in person at Headquarters. Interns assigned to FOs around the country went through a simultaneous orientation through livestreams of our orientation at HQ.

So if they are unavailable for most of next week and seemingly this week, doesn't this mean it is unlikely that those of us who haven't been finally adjudicated and whose statuses have not changed, will receive FJO's by next Friday?

I think perhaps with all the interns reporting to their units and divisions tomorrow, HR will have more time to get those FJOs and incoming intern-related work for their regions done. They were with us non-stop from yesterday through today for orientation and still have a lot of paperwork and on-boarding errors to get through while preparing for the second orientation. I wish I could provide more answers but that's all I could glean when I asked, sorry.

Hey Everyone! So currently I still have not received my FJO like many others. My processing date still has not been changed on my application. However I was told by my POC two weeks ago that I was in the final stages of my background and they were confident I would be cleared. I posted my latest transcript two days ago as well in hopes it might help speed the process. As the second orientation is approaching quickly, i'm getting worried like the rest. Any advice? Should I ask for an update through my POC or HQ?

Unfortunately, all I can tell you is to buckle down and stick it out. I started the internship this week and a few people that I talked to didn't receive any offers until last Friday. The next start date is slated for June 25th so they have plenty of time to send you your FJO last minute. Just hang in there and have faith!

I got an email last night saying they were not going to finish my background in time to start for summer due to complexities in my background but would continue the check to start part time in the fall. I am older than a lot if you here applying I think. I have a longer job history. Multiple residences and I've travel internationally to multiple countries. Anyway, this really stinks because I was part of the 2017 group that got left behind. And now it's happening twice.
