Well don't even consider that because you probably weren't going to work with them anyway.

Long time lurker, first time poster. I finally received my clearance.

My timeline: North Carolina Hiring Event

Applied: Feb. 2018
CJO: April 2018
CPC: June 2018
BI: May - September 2018
Cleared: Mid September 2018

My field is with Office Management and Infrastructure: (1410) Librarian and (1083) Writer/Editor

Could anyone tell me a little more about these fields?
What librarians might do for the DIA?
How long do those in the OMI field generally wait in the hiring pool?

Thanks in advance!

And now they have a page for "ANALYSIS & COUNTERINTELLIGENCE"

Which doesn't seem to say anything about counterintelligence...

Luckily... librarians are more important than counterintelligence officers.

There's somebody in that library about three hours a week. I think they are contractors. The blue-badge librarians must be doing something else entirely.

Old-timers, correct me if I am wrong, but this has got to be close to a record for the fastest clearance approval we've seen in a long time. Congrats on such a expedited clearance though!

If six months is the average, I am a major outlier; next month will be a year in security processing. Hoping to hear something soon, I received an email recently that said that 9-12 months for adjudication is the normal time frame they have been seeing recently.

4-6 months is usually the average. Getting a clearance does not take forever. Getting a final job offer does.

You may be confusing the adjudication phase with sitting in utter darkness with zero notification of your status. Which is not entirely surprising. I was contacted by DIA a total of three times during my entire hiring process and didn't realize the intricate details until after I started working, where I then abducted and interrogated various contractors, working in the Office of Human Resources. The adjudication phase begins AFTER a candidate receives a CJO and passes everything at the Central Processing Center (CPC). When... the adjudication phase begins, after you leave CPC... varies. The entire hiring process is ridiculous, with a huge backlog of candidates stuck and/or forgotten at different stages of the process. For example... it took them two months to even start my background investigation. Three months later... my clearance was granted. Three more months later... I received my final job offer. This all happened over a year ago, at the beginning of their mass hiring initiative, so there were less people ahead of me in the hiring pool. Those of you currently in the process are either a) waiting on your clearance or b) waiting on a hiring manager to like your resumé. If I was a betting man... and I am not, I'd bet that the majority of you are already cleared, but no one told you out of fear that you'd pull a rebels8, tell them to ***** themselves, and get a contracting job.

P.S.... those of you currently working as DIA contractors, I am sorry for your impending doom. Good luck.

Honestly I've been thinking the same thing recently, but I don't currently have access to anyone that will look me up in JPAS. I'm not exactly certain what Rebels8 did, but I'm assuming he found out that he was cleared and took that shiny brand new clearance and got a sick contracting gig? Maybe after the end of the fiscal year I'll see some movement. Thanks for your input man.

Many folks on this forum do report getting from CPC to final clearance in 4-6 months but there are numerous others who report longer wait times.

As somebody pointed out, this just gets you to the next round of the tournament which is getting an actual job offer and start date.

Who said 'impending doom for contractors?' There may be a hiccup with the new fiscal year, and some folks will have to switch from one company to another, but I doubt any contractors will be sitting around with nothing to do for very long. Just my opinion, no inside knowledge here.

If I know somebody with access to JPAS, would they be able to look up my clearance status? Or at least see if I am Cleared yet?

I have been in the dark for a while and the last communication I had with my POC they told me to "keep the faith."

I thought I made it obvious that I wasn't asking anyone here.

I work with people that have access to JPAS, I just have never asked if they could look me up for obvious reasons.

But if they could, I am at the point where I don't really care if they know I have a CJO floating around.

Once you get cleared, it *should* show up in JPAS. If you do find out, make a note of the date that the investigation finished and the date the final clearance was granted. This may come in handy if you try to find another job while waiting for that FJO.

Best case scenario... you learn that you've received your clearance and don't get fired.

Worst case scenario... you don't learn about your clearance and get fired.

If you don't give a ***** about the worst outcome, ask them.

How about that for "obvious", weenie roast?

Don’t ask your security admin. If it’s for a current job, it’s not worth the risk.

Just email the hiring pool.

In my experience, the personnel security specialists who work JPAS are overworked and underpaid and not likely to be big fans of management. In other words they are not likely to run off and tell your boss or HR that you are in process for a clearance with anyone else.

Still, you should exercise discretion.

In my experience... you should stop being a weenie and ask them about your current status.
