Applied 9/9. Still no change for me and I’m getting a little paranoid. Did anyone else have to upload their resume under the “attachments” section because there wasn’t a spot to upload the resume at the end of the app? I’m wondering if that’s my problem...

I hate to say it but if you weren't able to attach a resume to your application and didn't notify someone at the FBI of the problem then they likely labeled it as incomplete and dropped you from consideration.

I remember having to upload my resume under "other" in order to get it properly attached to my application. It also requested that I attach my college transcripts. I guess I did it right since I have my phase 1 scheduled.
App 8/30/18
P1 12/18
P2 12/18
P2 1/29/19 Pass
P3 4/8/19
P3 4/15/19 Pass

PSI 6/9/19
Poly 6/13
Poly Pass 6/17

I too don't recall a dedicated "add resume" button during the application. Applied on 10/15, so hoping that I'll hear something soon if those who applied in September are now seeing their application statuses change. Mine is still listed as "Under Review."

How have you all been preparing for the Phase 1 test? I've been so busy trying to move on from my current job that I haven't had any time to focus on that since I originally submitted. For those that took Phase 1, was it as you expected, more difficult, or less?

It was more difficult than i expected it but i also didn't really study that hard cuz you can't really study for it since its more of straight up logic test

I'm still in this for the long haul; I am sure that there have to be a lot of selection processes taking place behind the scenes.

It is strange how some candidates go from application to phase 1 testing in less than 14 days while others take nearly six months to hear back from the aqcuisitions team.

I am sort of in the middle of the pack here I believe (9/14/2018) and may be significantly older than most of you at 40. I know that there is no real age cut-off for IA's, but I wonder if they are going to poach the younger hotter models before investing in some old junk metal :D

Hopefully, my previous life as an intelligence analyst with TS/SCI access helps round off the edges on my application.

Who knows, though. Gotta keep on keepin' on.

I actually applied on 9/16 and have not heard anything so I am guessing they go by who submitted the application the earliest ?

I applied on 9/9 and nothing yet. I’m wondering if it’s a last name thing (I’m towards the end of the alphabet) or maybe it depends on the region where you applied? Who knows...
