Congratulations! I'm glad to hear this, good news for sure! I just re-applied for the ISO opening in Laguna Niguel a few weeks back, so hopefully I get some good news from that job.




Nice! have you heard anything? best of luck to you too, is it okay if I DM you?


I also applied for the ISO position in Laguna Niguel. On USAJOBS you are able to track your application. I did this last night and it shows that I have been referred to the hiring manager, although I have not received an email confirming this.

thanks 2 users thanked WasteAbalone for this useful post.

Why would the union need to be involved? With what posting?

Thanks everyone for contributing to this forum thus far! I too finally got my start date at USCIS as an ISO and I'm over the moon. It's been a really hard wait through the freeze and this Fed Soup thread has helped keep my hope alive over the last couple years.

Best of luck to everyone. It looks like everything is moving again and at a surprisingly fast pace as well. :-)

I applied back in July of 2019. So it's been a long road to get to this point!

Did they match your current pay or offer you the same pay from 2019?

They did match, but I think it was coincidental that the amount was the same as my current salary since the new GS rate was increased for 2021 to keep up with inflation.

They matched my pay as close as possible within the grade that I applied for in 2019.

Glad you received a referral.


All I got was:

"You were not among the most highly qualified candidates based on your self-rating of your qualifications."

Even though they have my SF-50 attached, that says ISA, ISO1 and ISO2...

Kind of glad I left the agency. Now, I don't think that I want to come back.





Moving to CN, and you can't stop me!!!

It's just crazy competitive right now since so many are wanting to get in on the remote working coming up. I know a bunch of people at USCIS who applied for ISO 1, 2 & 3 positions for jobs they are already doing. Not a single one was referred. I got achieved excellence and a bunch of stuff for 2020, but I didn't get referred to anything I applied for.

USCIS will probably be a real pain to get into/get promoted for a while. Feds from all over are taking pay cuts to get in.

Congratulations!

Did you receive your referral notice through an email, or did you check through their monster dashboard?

Thanks, I checked my application status through the monster dashboard. I guess they do not send emails anymore? I haven’t been getting them through email at least.

I am not worried. I had two interviews last week, with different agencies.

Thank you! I did not realize that they no longer send out emails.
Do you have any idea when they will start sending out emails for essays or interviews for the ISO 1 position that opened up in early June?

Wish I knew, but I really have no idea. Federal hiring is slow, so once you hit a step in the process, it’s best to just forget about it and think about it again once you get to the next step. Easier said than done, I know!

HOWEVER, the posting did say offers would be made within 90 days of the closing date, so you at least have that to gauge remaining time.
