Computer Network Analyst.


You aren’t by chance going into a development program were you? I ask as that is what I am doing and I have my poly next week.


I am going into a development program and will be doing my poly around that time as well! Hopefully the rest of our timelines will be as quick as 0x41


Is anyone entering the CNODP with only an associates?

02/19 - Applied
03/19 - Phone Interview (Told that I would be recommended for CJO)
04/19 - Call from the recruiter with salary info and a formal verbal offer
05/19 - Written CJO/equip
05/19 - Sent in transcripts
05/19 - Email from security for extra info.
06/19 - Security processing started
06/19 - Soft Credit Inquiry
08/19 - Got an Auto-Generated email stating I am in the suitability process

Got an email from the interviewer that security clearance takes 4-6 months to complete.

Update: I just looked at my free credit report looks like I had my credit pulled in June. Got an email from my recruiter in August stating security is looking at my case. Hoping to be completed before 2020 (fingers crossed)

Thanks,

For those that took the poly, how soon were you notified if you “passed” or “failed”?

They don't use failed. They use inconclusive and they will usually tell you that.

You don't get a "pass." I was asked a few questions afterward, "Would you uphold no drug use while holding a clearance" and asked to notify them of any foreign travel as well as not having any foreign national friends without reporting them.

Probably depends on how the examiner does their thing but that's how mine went and I only took one and was notified a week later that I was cleared and ready for hire. FJO was told it would be inbound and asked what date I'd like to start based on the dates they provided me.

One doesn't really pass or fail a poly, it's a tool that measures physiological responses to questions and supplements personnel security and investigations.

Yes but if they don't like your physiological responses then you fail.

The worst part is when they take you out into the hallway and they all yell "LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE!!!"


Actually that is the old kind with the pens, I think the new ones are all digital.

If your polygraph operator doesn't give you a passing score, you'll know it before you leave the room because you'll be treated to a post-test interrogation. This is standard procedure for federal agencies with polygraph programs, including NSA.

In general, polygraph operators won't tell you that you passed. They'll leave you uncertain about the outcome. But if you don't get a post-test interrogation, that is a very good sign.

Actually, one does really pass or fail a polygraph. If you fail, you get blackballed. In polygraph screening, the failing score is called "SR" for "significant reaction." In criminal investigations, it's called "DI" for "deception indicated." But whatever buzzword the federal polygraph community chooses to attach to it, it's still tantamount to "failing."

Thank you for the encouragement, I hope to hear something soon also.
I'm not going for a development program, but another position. I check in monthly, and am just trying to be patient. I really do enjoy seeing everyone succeed at their dreams though and get their FJO's! It's almost as exciting for me as my own processing. Definitely rooting you guys on.

It's been a while since I applied, so I don't remember exactly when.

Here's my timeline:

12/2018 Phone interview for Software Engineer position
1/2019 Received notification from another recruiter regarding the Cyber Capabilities Specialist position
2/2019 Online interview for second position
2/2019 Phone calls from both recruiters regarding CJO
2/2019 Transcript sent
3/2/2019 Signed documents to give NSA permission to obtain info
3/6/2019 Written CJO for both positions
3/8/2019 Submitted SF-86
3/11/2019 Request to revise SF-86
3/11/2019 Revised and sent SF-86

I haven't heard anything from them since then. Is it typical to wait for this long? I'm worried that my hospitalizations during college (first time was voluntary, second time it was not; college was a rough time) may hinder my chances.
