Unfortunately this is not a terribly unusual situation, especially for those with a CJO in some other "career field" besides Analysis

Can I ask why your start date is so late? Was it your choice or theirs? Only asking because I just started a contractor position and don't want to have to quit after only a few weeks if possible 😬. I still haven't been contacted by any hiring managers even though I've been cleared for analysis since November.

They gave me a choice between end of April or mid-May and I chose mid-May to give my current job a good heads-up. I know the start dates aligns with their pay periods, so cohorts would generally be brought on once every two weeks. I accepted on the first day of this pay period, so the earliest date is just 2 pay periods after.

I think this team sent an offer because my background aligns well. I've heard that more managers will be reaching out soon! I hope you hear back.

Hey everyone, long time lurker here. I’m in the MM field and I applied with an existing clearance. Just got adjudicated and entered the hiring pool in early February.

I feel like I’m having a strange experience because I’ve actually never spoken to anyone aside from people at CPC and emailing security forms. My “hiring event” was a pre-recorded interview and I haven’t received a reply to any of my emails, outside of the ones I sent security (they were very responsive.) I often see folks in this forum discussing their interactions with HR, as well as chatter about promotions and something called “Touchstone” and I’m just completely unaware. Are there resources anyone can recommend about what it’s like to onboard at DIA and what to expect? Do they compensate you for moving expenses if your first tour is OCONUS? Should I expect to wait about a year before hearing from HR? And does anyone know what MM is like, anyway...?

I’m not 100% sold on the idea yet because my current job pays ~$40k more than the salary in my CJO (10/3) and it seems that negotiating isn’t that successful, but I’m open-minded and hoping DIA can offer some interesting training and experiences that might convince me to make the jump. I’d especially like to go OCONUS, or anywhere that isn’t the DMV. :)

That sounds weird...

"Touchstone" is your first week of on-boarding, filling out a ton of paperwork and listening to a bunch of senior folks telling you how AWESOME you are and what an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING place DIA is. At least that's what it was pre-COVID.
