        Yes, plus the SF86 continuation form as well. I had one employment record that I needed to put down that I had to use the continuation form. Plus on the relatives part I needed 3 page number 11's! A bunch of half and step brothers and sisters! I already had it prepared from my DEA application, just had to make some minor corrections and change the date signed.

        • anyone else think it was a little curious that they had us submit the SF-86 prior to a TO? Or am I just way off base

            I thought the announcement says this form was recommended, but not required, so I am surprised that everyone is trying to fax SF-86 now. Correct me if I am wrong.

              Looks like they need the SF-86 first hand

              • I thought that sending the SF86 along with the application right away was a little off. But oh well, anything to try to speed up the "Hurry up and wait." The SF86 was one of the first documents I sent off for the DEA process after my COE.

                • Wow, submitting an SF-86 is one thing, but to not allow for a PDF via email is a bit of a joke, especially in the year 2010! One way to weed out applicants, I guess. And do I understand it correctly when they say they will not PCS for your first duty station, this includes overseas? Think that would weed out all but the really serious candidates in and of itself!

                    I just finished the on-line application last night. I'm working on updating my SF 86 now.

                    I seriously doubt that a new agent's first duty station would be overseas. I'm no expert but I would guess that a first duty station more likely would be in a larger stateside field office.

                    I thought the "fax an SF86" thing was strange, too. I was able to email my documentation for the USPB, and the USSS took it right off USAJobs. Then I saw that, apparently you have to fax stuff for the FBI as well.

                      • Just out of curiosity, well I guess I'm asking so I don't have to re-fax, On the last page of the SF-86 there appears to be a section for a doctor to sign, It says for "practitioner use only". I remember for the Border patrol back in '06 I didn't have to go to the doctor to get the SF-86 and I can't find that section anywhere in my old 86.

                        Basically my question is, is this something that we need to have done before we fax the damn thing?

                        • Nevermind, just realized that this was the medical release that the BI gets signed off on. Been a while since I filled out one of these lol.

                          • Quick question. I just applied for the JAN 10 NCIS SA opening. I am not a current federal employee, but may become one during the hiring process (I am currently a contractor in the IC). If I get picked up, great. I can resign and move on (the government knows this, it is my current client). If I don't I will be in a better position to pick up solid experience for the next round of openings.

                            Is changing employers during the hiring process going to hose my application process at all?

                              From the intelligence side of the house...it is safer to send PII over a fax machine than it is to send over unsecured email. You can get COTS software to capture emails. Bad idea to send your SSN over email, period.

                                If you're interested in an investigative position (which a NCIS SA position qualifies), start honing those investigative skills now. Doesn't take much effort to see where in the world NCIS offices are located: http://www.ncis.navy.mil/locations.asp. From that map, there is one (1) office in Greece, Souda Bay. Greek language skills might be helpful there, but out of all the foreign offices in this agency, Greek is probably bottom of the priorities for desired skillsets. Langauges from the Middle East, Far East, Spanish, French, and Russian are much more desirable, based on where we are and what we're involved in.

                                It happened to me, and I still got hired. Just use common sense. If you get hired elsewhere, update your recruiter (or background investigator if you're that far in the process). If it looks like you will change jobs (so long as it's not for disciplinary reasons at your current job), keep those that need to know aprised of it.
