Did anyone apply to the 2011 Diplomatic Courier Vacancy?  If so, has anyone been contacted for the oral assessments?  I haven't heard anything since the vacancy closed out in July 2011.

The only response I got was that I wasn't qualified.  That was strange because I answered the questions the same as I did last year and got a notice to appear for testing (I had to decline last year because I wound up getting another job that started just before the test date.)

If you haven't heard anything by now I don't know what to tell you. From what I heard they had something like 1900 people apply for around 2-3 positions.

Same boat. I understand when it say's "qualified but not most qualified" or something along those lines. To get a "Not qualified" was shocking. Not too worried though. From what people have told me they don't want it to be your stepping stone, they want you to be a career Diplomatic Courier. I'm hoping for the good word from the Federal Air Marshal's.

Sorry, to hear you both didn't make it this time around.  On another subject, for those of you who actually were invited to the 2011 Oral Assessment, what did you think about it?

Another question: Did they say how many people applied for the position and how many people made the oral assessment?
