I applied for a new position. I received an email that I was referred to the selecting official. I had an interview, then a couple of months later I received an email that another candidate was selected. On USAJobs my status went to reviewed. Now today I look on USAJobs and my status is back to referred for that same position. I find this strange. Has anything similar happened to anyone else? This announcement isn't a roster.

No personal experience, but perhaps the original selectee never showed up, or left soon after onboarding, and they’re back at square one to fill the vacancy. Can you call the POC on the announcement?

Assuming no human error,,,

Person selected coukd have failed background check or turned down the job or left job shortly after getting it.

That's similar to how I was offered an Asylum Officer position. I was interviewed, not selected, then got a TJO. Second ever actual government TJO I received and I wanted to go. I can only assume it's because the person they did originally select ended up realizing they couldn't afford San Fransisco on a GS 9 salary. I couldn't, not with a family and pets at any rate. I mean I wanted to...just couldn't get the math to work out with no relocation help.

Could be anything...also is your advertisement multiple locations or does it say it can be used to fill other non-listed vacancies?

Stop looking at USA Jobs. The status is not of value. The emails are of value. The status on USA Jobs is a function of human resources, not the hiring manager. Unless you receive an email with a tentative offer / final offer continue to pursue other jobs...

UsaJobs is not accurate; don’t waste any time considering the status.
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.
