No. It's still just sitting there as referred. The RO position was my first choice though. Did you apply to both?

For whatever reason, they said I didn't meet minimum qualifications for an RO.

On the job posting it says there are two positions under the RO umbrella, Field Collection and Technical Reviewer. The job posting goes on to say, "Regardless of the position you choose..." Is this something that every new hire is asked, "Which position would you prefer?" Is there anyone here that's on the Technical Reviewer side or knows anything about it? Thanks!

Those jobs aren’t for externals.

The service is looking for GS-11s to fill some quality review positions.

It’s boring work. And you’re second guessing closing decisions by field ROs

That won't happen until AFTER training because that is a flex work schedule if you are working from home. But, I believe you need to be within the mile requirement of your POD which is 150 miles according to the IRM I have read. It's probably best to live close to your POD your first year, unless that just is impossible. Just my opinion.

That will work. I will link the public IRM url so you can see what I am talking about. https://www.irs.gov/irm/part6/irm_06-800-002

See 6.800.2.3.1.3.5 (02-07-2018): Distance Limitations for Telework Locations.

Hope that helps!

You can start you local travel from your home on field days in your training year.

So long as you live within the mileage requirement to your POD.

Unless your manager or OJI require you to report to the office before leaving for the field.

During my training year the manager and OJIs wanted us to have a full day in the field and you had to write your histories in the field as well because you can’t work from home.

Jam, listen to Scotty on this. He has experience in this case. As he stated, it is up to your OJI and manager. Just be aware you aren't working from home though as Scotty said.

My manager was good about travel. Other people’s arent.

Best to get the clarification from your OJI or manager.

I can assure you though all managers want their ROs field time to increase. So it’s in their interest to get and ‘exceeds’ on their review to encourage you to be in the field as much as possible.

I’m not a trainee, but my new GM loves it. I’ve been in the field the last 6 out of 10 work days.

Both for initial contact and field follow ups.

I wonder why they would post it on the external GS7/GS9 posting then.

Probably a mistake. But unless you are a GS11 RO you won’t qualify

https://www.usajobs.gov/...ob/ViewDetails/536185600

That’s only open to internals.

Thanks for the info. I see that the job description for both is the same, verbatim. They must just recycle it for all the RO postings.
