Disappointing, I called the number and extension she provided every 15-30 minutes until I just walked out the door 1700 CST and no answer. There's not much I can do at this point, I can't just take the day off and sit by a phone and wait for her to call my cell phone despite leaving multiple voice messages and emails saying call me at my work number. They've called me at my work before, obviously if I'm not answering try another method. Sorry for my vent, I'm heading to the gym now lol. Truely dissapointed..

I don't have anything to add other than that I agree that it's super frustrating and disappointing. Ultimately this is the "easiest" part of the process so far and you can't even make contact! Hope it works out today.

So, I finally reached her and was extended a FJO, the field was right but the specialty wrong, I turned it down. I gave my preference and so I wait, once more I wait.

For the folks with multiple offers, atleast this is how it was presented to me, one offer at a time. I don't know what the next one will be but like I said in the aforementioned, I stated my preference and she was receptive to input and questions.

Dude if you got the right field I would have just taken it. You can always switch around once you get your foot in the door.

I say this with keen interest as a dual-CJO holder who isn't all that interested in the first CJO anymore. I'm going to be throwing things if they come at me with 3 positions in the analyst career field only. lol. If I'm going to be taking a pay cut I'd at least like to get a job that can't be done as a contractor (anything related to field work).

Yes, I thought about that but the opportunities within that specialty (not the field, I want the field) are limited and it just wasn't the right fit.

That's exactly my point, I'm taking a pay cut and the position is typically what contractors do, no offense to those that want to do it but I'd prefer collection.

Agreed completely. Analysis is cool but it gets a little old after doing it for years on end.

Exactly! And I have, so a change would be great. I mean if they keep coming back with the same offer I'll just suck it up but I'm hoping that's not the case. Lol hope in one hand and shiza in the other.

I seem to recall seeing opportunities for folks to switch fields, but if you can get the job you want from the get-go, that would be best.

Just don't outsmart yourself :)

You're correct, there is annual opportunities but it would be a crap shoot if you get it after one year. They'll probably frown immensely and it may prevent you from promoting that year. Oh the trade off.

Ha, I'm trying not to outsmart myself. I just trying to ensure I atleast ask for what I want.

You're not able to put in for a change until your 2 year probation is up, and even then, it has to be approved.

And that's why I'll wait.. It's not like I'm asking for something I didn't receive a CJO for, I think it's reasonable to choose your position.

Well your case may have proceeded so fast, because you began the process before the election. The hiring freeze and the holidays interrupted everybody who got a CJO at the December hiring event. Also, unless your two trips abroad were for long periods of study or work and not just vacation or a business trip, then those trips probably wouldn't hold up your clearance process that much. Good luck with your new job at DIA!
