Hi all! I applied 8/28/18 and was invited to take Phase 1 testing yesterday. I'm scheduled to take the test Monday. :)

I'm still in this for the long haul; I am sure that there have to be a lot of selection processes taking place behind the scenes.

It is strange how some candidates go from application to phase 1 testing in less than 14 days while others take nearly six months to hear back from the aqcuisitions team.

I am sort of in the middle of the pack here I believe (9/14/2018) and may be significantly older than most of you at 40. I know that there is no real age cut-off for IA's, but I wonder if they are going to poach the younger hotter models before investing in some old junk metal :D

Hopefully, my previous life as an intelligence analyst with TS/SCI access helps round off the edges on my application.

Who knows, though. Gotta keep on keepin' on.

I actually applied on 9/16 and have not heard anything so I am guessing they go by who submitted the application the earliest ?

HR works in mysterious ways. I'm sure they have a method to their madness. It's probably best to not think of it too much and just go with the flow as things move along.

Your experience as an analyst with a prior TS clearance and SCI access is great. I'm sure you've got what the FBI is looking for. As for your age, being 40 just means you're wiser than many of us! I would be surprised if HR is focused on someone's age under 50.
Applied to IA: Sep 17

Phase III: Sep 18
CJO: Oct 18

I applied on 9/9 and nothing yet. I’m wondering if it’s a last name thing (I’m towards the end of the alphabet) or maybe it depends on the region where you applied? Who knows...

I applied 8/28 and my last name is at the end of the alphabet too. I'm betting it's by region. :)

My status changed to Phase 1 Assessment, yet haven't received the email instructions.
So, its moving along - just like everyone has advised us.

Any tips?

Did you already get the results or is there another round of waiting associated with this stage?

Are you naturally a good test taker?

The study guide that the FBI provides is a good start. They break down the sort of questions you'll encounter.
