Congrats!

Any idea why it took from Jan to April to get a start date? Did you request a delay?



The position I was going for was cancelled by the time I received clearance

Yeah, that has been reported a few times on this forum. I also know of a case where by the time the person was cleared, there was a hiring freeze, and by the time the hiring freeze was lifted, he had to re-do some of the processing. But he did eventually get a job there.

Did you have a clearance when you applied?


No I didn't


Dude that is lightning fast for someone with no prior clearance. Any foreign national contacts, travel, etc? Some of us have been waiting for years and no one really knows why

Anybody here do a technical position (engineering mathematics, etc.)? Is the hiring timeline similar for these positions or a tad different?

[Edited to be shorter. I wrote the original while under the influence of a flu fever and it was not very coherent.]

The hiring timeline seems to be similar for most positions, give or take 2 or 3 months, after they accept and validate your SF-86 and do whatever secret squirrel stuff they do. I think that the hiring clock only really starts once security 'hands you off'.

Timelines seem to be expedited by ~2/3 months for students who apply directly out of college in their final year or are applying for a co-op/internship.

Your mileage will vary depending on who has your case, how complex your case is, whether godzilla is upset this week, or if you're just plain unlucky.

Here is my current progress. Hoping for an FJO/EOD by the end of 2019!


09/18 - Applied
09/18 - Resume/Transcripts requested
11/18 - Interviewed
12/18 - CJO
12/18 - eQIP submitted





01/19 - Credit Pulled


Little news like that really doesn't mean much, but I am sure glad to see some movement!

I read your original post, which included the quip about linguists facing years of wait and must say I think that is dead on.

Yeah... I'm not a linguist, but I have a few foreign contacts (~3? I don't see/talk to any of them more than 1x a year, so let's see), so I'm not going to wait around for them at this point.
If you were ever an exchange student, you're gonna have a bad time.

So I understand that once you get a clearance, it's good for 5-6 years depending on if it's TS or just secret. Does that mean that once I'm cleared, I can work for 5-6 years, and then I have to sit around for another year+ while I go through this whole process again?

Usually, if you get your updated paperwork in before your five years is up (or when your agency tells you to do it, which may be more than five years) then you are able to keep working with no interruption.

Usually.

Anyone get contacted by a “Hiring Ambassador”? I did a few weeks ago. It’s another POC to answer questions while I process.

Sure did, but she really couldn't give me anything more than generic answers back.

Another dumb question, when people say it takes X days to get a TS, are those numbers generally counting all days, or just the workdays that investigators actually are busy for? Some guy on reddit posted this question and I figured maybe people here would know. getting up near 400 for me if it's all days, hooray?

This infographic is from early 2013 (pre-snowden, pre-winner, during manning) so take it with a grain of salt. I'd say that it's for all of the phases, the timelines had days added, and then also add in the polygraph, etc.

That's a little different, especially since it came right before you got your final clearance (apparently).

Did they just want to make sure you still lived at the same place and that sort of thing?

Congrats, that is actually a pretty nice timeline. Mind if we ask the normal position/ foreign travel, contacts question?
