I'm currently in process and wondering if while waiting I am allowed to apply to another position while waiting on this one. any thoughts? thanks in advance


If you really want to work for the CIA, I would not apply to other jobs while you are "in-processing". Regarding your "in processing", how far along are you in? It can sometimes take a good year to a year and a half for applicants to be processed so waiting that long is nothing unusual. And I never heard of anyone, who is in-processing at the CIA, to have their tentative job offer yanked due to budget cuts. That happens a lot with DoD agencies, even DoD IC agencies, but I never heard that happen at CIA.


If you just want to be a federal employee, then I would apply to other jobs and take whatever job gives you a definitive start date. In my opinion, it would make your chances to get a job at the CIA harder later on should you decide to apply again.

I think they explicitely tell you to apply for other jobs while "in-processing". You'd be foolish not too.

Its probably not common, but I'm sure jobs get eliminated before they get filled, and, of course, something in your background could result in them rescinding your COE.

Honestly, someone who wants to work for the CIA so bad they don't apply to other jobs sounds a bit silly to me, even a bit suspicious.

They explicitly tell you to keep your current job while you "in-process". Of course, if you are unemployed and need some sort of income to keep you afloat, then by all means you should be applying to other jobs (probably something to just hold you over).

The poster said he/she is one year into his "in-processing". At that point, he/she isn't some first time applicant just being called in for an interview. If he/she got called in to do the psych/medical/poly and have completed it, I would stick with it and not apply anywhere else. If something pops up in his/her background that makes CIA rescind the COE, well, he/she is going to also get rejected at other agencies requiring a TS/SSBI with SCI access. Might as well just stick it out with the in-processing with CIA and see how it goes. Again, that is all dependent upon the poster's current employment/finacial situation.

It won't increase your chances.....they will see that you are in-processing for the position that your currently applied for and are processing for. In my opinion, I don't think they will call you in for an interview if they see that you are in-processing for another job.

You made it through one year of in-processing so your chances have been really great so far, in terms of receiving a final COE, compared to a lot of people who don't hear anything back after submitting an initial application.

IT took 7 months to hear from them from time of application, clearance took one year, three polys, an extremely expensive kidney test they insisted on even tho my doc thought it extremely crazy. I stayed one year could not adjust to the area. Now I work for another agency in the south and like it. I already had a TS/SCI when I started I thought it would be quick. HA So be patient...

Yes,I am. I did not like the DC area. But my clearance I got from them helped me get a good job in Huntsville, that I love. Lots of people like DC and would not move. It is a good idea to go up there and spend some time if you have never been. Good luck.

Is CIA's hiring like NGA's at all? As in, they interview, offer, clear, and then wait for a position to open up?

Or once the person is cleared (poly, investigation, etc), they're given a EOD date and they start?

Or maybe both depending on the position?

With CIA, they will only bother to interview you if they have open positions. They don't do this silly "future needs" type of stuff that DIA and NGA does. They supposely keep your resume on file for one year, even if you interview and don't receive a conditional offer of employment, to allow other offices within the agency to look at your resume. But a recruiter told me, last year to be exact, that if I had any new/updated duties/assignments at my current job since my last CIA interview (and if it's been under one year since my last application submission), that I should just go ahead and submit a new application.caldel2013-01-07 04:21:18

there are all sorts of different categories -- most of them are corroborating/confirming a specific piece of your life like 'i lived here for x years' or 'i attended school here for x years'. sometimes they need multiples, and often times they need nearby neighbors which can make things difficult if you don't know anyone who lives nearby.

then there are a few (3 or 4) personal references who are just sort of 'character witnesses' i guess.

i may have had 10-20 refs in total. i think only 10ish were interviewed personally or over the phone.
