I applied for one of the many Intelligence Analysts positions with the FBI based in Indy. The job description said that the applications would be processed by 10-01-04. What does processed mean? How much longer should I wait before I right this one off as a loser?

Thanks

I applied for one of the surveillence specialist positions about a year ago. I even received an email saying that my applications was accepted. It's been 7 months since I got the email, and I've yet to hear anything. Either they're really slow, or they just have so many applicants they can be very choosey.

Good luck.

Would I gain anything by calling the Indy field office and politely asking what time line to expect on these positions?

To my knowledge, the field offices don't have anything to do with the hiring, initially. You might want to get a number for their human resources department, as I believe they would be the ones who process the applications.

The contact points for vitually all of those offices were DC. I would expect the HQ to have a MASSIVE pile of applications given the number of announcements they had. I talked to a couple IA's and was told the hiring process is typically 5-9 months from announcement close to start date (depends on the complexity of the background check once they pick a person).

I wouldn't get in a hurry. My understanding is they are processing lots of apps, and hiring lots of people, without comitting a huge staff to it. Recruiting/hiring is a LOT of work.
