Thanks in advance!


Congrats!! Keep us updated as to your process moving forward. Hopefully mine will be coming soon, as well!


Thanks, will do!

I think this has been answered before, but does anyone where the majority of Analysts get placed upon acceptance of FJO? I think I saw somewhere that it is predominantly in the DMV. Just want to prepare myself if I'm offered anywhere else.


Thank you!



DC most likely. Other possible locations are Rivanna Station (Charlottesville, VA) and Russell Knox Building (Quantico, VA). CENTCOM a chance but unlikely.

Congats! I wonder how they've been doing Touchstone differently during the covid pandemic?

Just emailed the ACF to get an update. FYI for anyone waiting right now for analysis job offers:

“To give you a bit of background, we running bidding cycles every 2 weeks during which offices with open positions can bid on candidates in the pool. We do this by circulating the resumes among the offices. During these cycles, candidates may hear from hiring managers in ACF offices with questions. Sometimes it can take a few bidding cycles for the right match to pop up between an open position and a candidate.”

Had prior marijuana use right after college in a state where it’s legal and lived abroad in a NATO country two separate times for educational purposes.

CJO (GG-8 Step 5): Aug 2020
Drug Test: Aug 2020
BI: Sept 2020
CPC: Nov 2020
Cleared: Nov 2020
FJO: ???

I had a hard time getting approved in the forum to post by the mods, so if you’re in the same situation and have questions, feel free to DM me!


I'm super jealous! I was at the same event and have my CPC in Feb. I also have 1 yr (and counting) of working in the DOD/IC with a TS/SCI. Wondering how that will help my process...


Did you ever find out if that would help speed up the process or are you in the same boat as everyone else?

Yes! I actually got updated already. I've been cleared and entered the hiring pool.

Congrats! Looking forward to being coworkers with a feral cat one day. Did the previous clearance help speed up your timeline? Or did you go through all the steps like everyone else? I DM'ed with the same question, fyi.

Wow, you've been waiting for 3 months? I know they said I should start hearing back within 2 weeks? I'm guessing that's the timeline they tell everyone given the bidding cycle. Has anyone reached out to you?

Yep! I don't think I'm super in-demand because I'm so green. It'll happen eventually, I guess! I'm just glad I got a clearance so quickly so I qualify for certain contractor jobs even without intel experience.
