We actually have the same timeline. There are literally thousands of us on here... kidding, maybe like 10, which is still too many. HUMINT appears to be the new MM, so get ready for the long haul.




So close, yet, so far away, lol.

No, you'll just wait on the cleared hiring list for an unknown period of time until you're offered a FJO.


Thank you, those are actually great news. I was wondering what would happen.

There was an extensive discussion on this twelve-months-to-get-cleared deadline some months back and the general consensus was that they were not enforcing it... at least nobody has come on and said they were kicked out for not getting cleared.

In contrast, other training courses are simply a preliminary step and you will need to register for certification, once you complete 12-18 months of "on-the-job training" (actual work). Anyways... here's the official difference between the two. Training provides you with knowledge, to improve your personal performance. Certification is equivalent to an "additional skill identifier" (military lingo), which will allow you to fill additional billets. For example, I was a certified DoD Interrogator, prior to getting hired by DIA. I am not currently assigned to an interrogator billet. However, since my certification is still valid, DIA can reassign me to an interrogator billet, when ever they want. Since most of you are not interrogators, let me give you an example which might actually apply.

Let's say you're forum user Kd17 and are given a FJO for the Operations Support Career Specialty, within the HUMINT Career Field. The FJO will include a position title, such as "Intelligence Officer (OPS Support)". I've already mentioned this before, but there are THREE types of billets for this Career Specialty: Desk Officer, Targeting Officer, Collection Management Officer. It doesn't really matter to Kd17 which billet he's assigned to, because he's eligible to attend training for all three positions. If Kd17 is hardcore, he will improve his capabilities by requesting to attend additional training (i.e. Defense Strategic Debriefing Course). If his request is "approved" and he successfully graduates the course, he will become "certified" and eligible to fill an "Intelligence Officer (Debriefer)" billet, within the Overt Collection Career Specialty, of the HUMINT Career Field.

In summary, certification is more valuable than training, but training will help you become certified.


I would try and get as many certifications and on- the-job training as possible, especially within that first year to make myself as competitive as possible for the future.

Being that I have time on my hands, I thought about getting started on the new hire forms. Does anyone knows if the forms at the DIA website are updated? Cause I'm about to start getting ready just in case they call me. Thanks.

Jerry: Hi, I'm Jerry Seinfeld, the agency sent me.

Sid: Agency? What agency? The *CIA*?

(Little known fact: it was supposed to be DIA but CIA paid a product placement fee to the producers of Seinfeld)

Why would that be? We just had a brand new defense budget passed.

The number of open billets isn't necessarily determined by the budget, but also by the needs of the agency. Furthermore, the number of CJOs given out is probably also determined by planning for multiple years into the future. DIA will never know for sure how many open billets will be available or needed at any one time. So the agency will likely always give out more CJOs and have more people on the cleared list than there are open billets.

How often does the agency has open billets for this particular career field?

I have been posting in other threads regarding the FJO wait times,(Dec 2016, CJO, HUMINT) and was wondering if anyone received a POC for the HUMINT career field?

I'm from the Dec 2016 Hiring Event and haven't heard anything. Not even a POC, I contacted the Hiring Pool to see if they could put me in contact with a POC and they told me that they couldn't do that. The POC for HUMINT would contact me, smh.
