I applied today for the Criminal Investigator position at Kennedy Space Center. I have only just started my MS in Forensic Accounting so I am not sure if I will even qualify to be considered, but I wanted to at least try. After all its not every day your dream job is hiring. I have a BA in accounting, have worked in accounting for 5+ years and served 6 years as a military police office in the Army so I am hoping schooling + experience will be enough. I'm currently located in Ohio but have wanted to relocate to Titusville, FL so this would be the perfect opportunity.

Has anyone else applied for this position?

Has anyone gone through the application process, and know if it is as lengthy as other federal application processes?

Does anyone know what the physical fitness test requires for the Criminal Investigation Training Program at Glynco, Georgia?

Thank you in advance and good luck to anyone else who may have applied!

I applied as I'm real close to KSC and this would also be considered a dream job for me

Can't speak to this position in particular, but NASA is fairly good with its hiring process (at least this is my experience when compared to my experiences at other agencies, both as a person applying and as part of hiring someone).

This said, NASA is undergoing a transformation in the mission support side of things, with each of the mission support functions being consolidated from being center specific to part of a larger agency office. This should result is faster results in the longer term, but may result in some hiccups in the short term as new chains of leadership are worked out.

Overall though...NASA is not a bad place to work, no matter what center you are at, and if it is an area you want to live as well...then you may be one of the NASA lifers who spend the rest of their careers with the agency. (quick note: if you have less than 5 years at NASA, you are considered one of the "new" people!).
