Have not heard that phrasing before... I guess that is necessary before being scheduled?

Some other folks here report waiting an awful long time to even be scheduled, much less the actual Day of Destiny (cue ominous music)

Hahahha I could have phrased it better. That’s what happens when you make forum posts before you finish your coffee. ;)

But yeah, long story short, apparently your forms need to approved by security before they pass you on to a scheduler.

Hey Porgy, congrats on moving forward to the poly stage. Since you haven't been waiting years for that to happen I'm guessing you're not going for a language analyst position?

Thanks. Still a long road ahead, and no guarantee for a job, though.

You’re correct, I’m going for a technical role. I wish I could speak another language fluently. heh.

I’ve read this thread and the other threads enough to put together that the language analysts have a hard time of it, which is why I made that statement earlier.

Did anyone catch the "Debunking the NSA Security Clearance Process (Spring 2019)" info session today? I couldn't get Adobe Connect to work in time, but was curious if the session discussed anything interesting that might apply to us folks stuck in the backlog.

I attended it. It was interesting, but no real info then what we prob already know. Some things i got from it were that when you meet with the investigator to go over your sf86 forms, that’s your “final” time to get everything correct before the BI starts researching ya. Also that when the Background Investigation starts, could take 9-12 months, depending on foreign contact, foreign travel, divorcees, address changes and so forth. Also they will be contacting people that you associate with that arent on your sf86 forms. They want to get a good idea of who they are hiring. They want a “snapshot” of your life, and how you are as “a person”. That’s all i can really say i got from the seminar. The other stuff was just the process, (operational interview, COJ, filling out the sf86 forms, polygraph/psychological exams) and then how long it could take to get a FJO and EOD. Hoping everyone can get out of waiting soon. I know i am anxious to get there myself lol.

Also to add, i found out about it by following the NSA page on Facebook.

Idk about you but I've read that's one thing you're not supposed to do when applying to work at 3-letters

Wow! That’s a really long time! Hope you guys are done soon. Im just starting that wonderful phase, so i guess i’ll be waiting a while again.

As far as following them on facebook, they’re always posting new job opportunities and seminars, so i figured we would be encouraged to follow them, as long as we don’t disclose that we’ve applied or are working for them.

T.Swift is correct with regards to social media. If you aren’t aware of what foreign intelligence services are capable of, google China and LinkedIn articles. It’s a massive operation and it doesn’t only stop/end at LinkedIn. If needed, create a pseudonym profile and follow feeds like that but never under your own name.

Yes, I do. And that is incredibly good news, since that took a long time due to the geographies. And how the contractor who had my case conducted business, it was a protracted relay rather than mutitasked; the guy who went to Iowa traveled from Chicago, got lost on campus and "got tired and went home" before finishing interviews, went back the next month.

Thanks for this reply. Makes the prospect of data entry on eqip and the fullscope stuff look like a gift, as at least I won't be waiting for the bg again, much less trying to soothe the academics who get very weird about badges and what they think of as odd questions requiring equally odd answers.

Plus I don't need someone outing me as cleared or potentially cleared to my neighbors. Awkward.

Hello all,

I am going to share my journey to this point.

10/2018 (or thereabouts) - Applied to several positions
12/2018 - First interview
12/2018 - Prescreen interview
12/2018 - Sent in transcripts and DD214
1/2018 - CJO
1/2018 - E-qip sent and SF-86 completed
2/2018 - Interview for another position
2/2018 - CJO
2/2018 - Took CNT
3/2018 - Face to face sit down with the investigator
3/2018 - Interview for the third and fourth position
3/2018 - CJO for position three of four
3/2018 - Scheduled for Poly, Psych, and HR Interview
4/2018 - Called to be informed of fourth CJO coming soon
4/2018 - Second face to face sit down with the investigator
Now...just waiting

My recruiters have been very helpful at every step in this process. For those wondering, I am former military and have literally no social life (lol) outside of my wife, children, and family. I guess it pays to be boring. Thanks to all others who have shared.

Newbie Here:

So my process has been a little different. I am also prior military and have the clearance, but still going through the BI. I think it's because of my frequent travel (while in the military) and foreign contacts within my immediate family. I also think my 5 years is up this year. This has been my ride so far:
12/17- Applied
4/18- Notice of 120 days expiration (still no word)
8/18- Notification of Interview
8/18- In-person Interview
10/18- Transcripts submitted
11/18- CJO
11/18 eQIP submitted
12/18- Revision Request of (SF-86) (X2)
1/19 BI
4/19 Contacted that I'm still going through the BI process
