Hey I'm unable to post yet and was curious can you post this for me. I'm curious how many people are currently waiting on the direct hire position posted back in August - 18CE2-DHX0160-2210-11T14. My rating on the agency site shows Best Qualified-Pending Qualifications. The comments show:

If you have any questions concerning the status of your application, please refer to the agency contact information in the announcement. To view the announcement, return to your USAJOBS account, click application status and click the announcement number for the vacancy contact info.

Also, I received the email below this past Friday. From what I researched it's just a waiting game from here right?

I received a similar email today but the announcement to which I applied is different. I am wondering what this email means....

I heard IRS is hiring COBOL developers for legacy systems.
Right now an internal posting is floating around. I guess an external job posting should also be available now.
Lot of training is being focused for internal candidates as well.
Looks like the SMEs are being trained with java and other skills along with external hirings.
Heard more internal promotions happened than external hiring for 2018.
All the Best!!

Yes. Once. It probably isn't normal practice, though, because I wasn't contacted by my upcoming manager for other jobs I got within the agency.

Posting it for user mc13 who cannot post yet.

I cannot post in this forum for some reason. I am a new member.

I was wondering if you may post this for me?

I am located in the MD area and i was given a TO letter a few weeks ago. I did complete my fingerprinting and photo. I have been assigned to the New Carrollton office in MD. Any ideas on when i could be expected to start? My TO states i was accepted at a GS14. Just looking for some insight as to how long it took everyone else to get a firm offer letter. Also, just because we get a TO letter are the chances for us actually getting the job really really good?

thanks.

I have been seeing more new hires in WV. A couple that I spoke to that started this week (there were about 10) applied in June, almost 6 months ago.

Well, management did get excoriated in an audit report by TIGTA over screwing up the so-called hiring surge. Folks in AM are worried that our VoIP phones will crash ENTERPRISE-wide or if the database will finally die on us. These VoIP phones that we use for taking calls from taxpayers fit the stereotype of being the highest quality by the lowest bidder.

The Cisco phones, there is a terrible delay, seems like it is 2 seconds or more. We are waiting for an internal hire that got picked in Aug, you would think that would be quick being on the inside!

What happened with the hiring surge? Have to review TIGTA report if it is public.


I logged in today to see if anyone can confirm. I found out, though not officially so asking here, that Vets and other preferences are given to all candidates regardless of if they applied after the cutoff dates for some postings. For some positions, there was a two to four week cutoff period for first consideration and I was under the impression that the subset of applicants from that pool would be taken, rated, preferences applied, offered and if positions not filled then move on to more. Can anyone confirm if what I heard is true or what I thought it was? If its the latter then a lot of people who applied sooner would be out of luck since many of these positions are still open so they will continue to get preference candidates.

General caveat, not judging any preferences but simply trying to make sense of it all for IRS jobs.
