I've seen people here with Master's and seemingly a few years of government/Intel/analysis experience get rejected. I'm wondering if the GS9 positions were just more competitive. I'd also assume that someone rejected from GS9 would be considered for GS7, but maybe not.


You were able to chose the grade level? The opening I applied for was "INTELLIGENCE ANALYST - GS 7/9 (External - ALL US Citizens and Internal employees)" and I don't remember the application asking me to choose. I have a masters so I just assumed they would automatically place me into GS-9 if I ever got to that part of the process.


I applied for a lot of federal positions at the end of September. Many were listed as GS7/9 and asked to specify which grade I was applying for. The FBI app may not have been one of those submissions, since it was through the FBI website not USAjobs. However, I'm fairly certain that there were a few questions to verify that you were eligible for a certain grade. I'm assuming that if you met the requirements for GS9 (or said you did) then you'd be considered for that level. I selected 'no' for the questions pertaining to GS9, so I'm in the GS7 pool.

I'm wondering if those that qualified for GS9 only get considered for that level, rather than both.

You may be over-thinking it here. If you're qualifying on education alone, it's simply: Bachelor's = GS07, Master's = GS09. That was my case. I have 9 years of Active Duty military experience, none as an intel analyst or anything related to intel. So based on my work experience alone, I'm not necessarily competitive. However, I have a Master's in Homeland Security and was offered GS09 on my CJO based solely on that.

For those with intelligence experience, I think it's case by case. From what I saw in the forums, they bring you in at GS11/12 with experience.

Based on my personal hiring process, the FBI doesn't seem to consider your grade level until after you pass phase III and are offered a CJO. At that time, they'll evaluate your education and experience to make an appropriate offer. I do not believe the GS09 positions are any more competitive than GS07 (for the FBI IA positions, at least), except for having a Master's vs. a Bachelor's.

Applied to IA: Sep 17
Phase I: Feb 18
Phase II: Mar 18
Phase III: Sep 18
CJO: Sep 18
PSI/Poly: Oct 18
BI: Sep 18

I have been following this thread for a while and decided to create and account to share some info I recently learned from my application coordinator.

If you are applied to both the IA and SA positions, your IA application automatically goes on the back-burner in favor of the SA application. When I spoke to my AC, he asked me which application I wanted to proceed with first, and when I asked what he meant, he explained to me that because the IA process generally moves a lot faster, people choose to go that route, and then when their BI all done, they jump ship to the SA. As such, I chose to pause my IA application and go forward with the SA.

I thought I'd share that with any of you waiting for your IA app to go forward...if you have an SA app too, call your AC to make sure that they didn't bench it!

Wow, that would explain what happend to me. There are other folks who took the exam before me that live in my area and have already received their results. How do I find out who my application coordinator is?

I actually just called the field office I would be processing from and when the receptionist answered, I asked to speak to the applicant coordinator. I was lucky to have gotten a call back from him later that day. However, I have called other field offices with questions and never gotten a call back unless I mention specifically that my questions are relevant to the Special Agent application. Good luck!!

How do I know which field office I am processing from? The application never mentioned my process was attached to any specific place.

Generally speaking, it’s going to be the field office closest to your location. For example, I’m in the Fresno area and my closest field office is going to be Sacramento. I would say look at the FBI site to find their list of field offices and contacts and then from there you can determine which office you’d do your processing from based on which one is closer.
