Although I haven't been in the military I have still had to fill out forms about military history, so no, its not obvious that I should bypass that form. And I have been in law enforcment, including investigations, for close to 8 years, so I don't care if some know-it-all cocky SA trys to throw out pointless, worthless little cut downs. Maybe you should follow in the footsteps of all the other 1811's on here that are willing to answer people's questions, no matter how big or little they may be. I'm not into getting into a ******ing contest with you on here b/c its pointless. There are plenty of others on here that will lend the help if asked.
      You seem a little spun up over a very small issue. Kimble is a solid agent who has been giving great information ever since I was in the process. Hopefully, you can move past what seems like a very sensitive issue for you. I can tell you this, you would fit right in with Internal Affairs

      • Has NCIS ever hired someone straight out of college?

          I'm sure they have. I would expect that person to have a very high GPA and some outside life experience like volunteer work or sports.

            Actually, most straight-from-college hires I've met "know someone" within the agency. In my basic class we had 24 students, comprised of former military officers, former cops (many detectives/investigators, and several 1811's from other agencies), and those from other professional careers. Several had master's degrees. Not one was straight out of college. Since then, every agent I've met who came on after me to the FO I'm at has come here as a second career. New hires that are straight out of college are rare, and without some sort of connection, I've yet to met one.

            Some federal agencies do a good bit of hiring of recent college grads (ICE and USSS come to mind), NCIS just isn't one of them.

                There's two ways to look at your situation:

                1) Give it your best shot, and if not selected and still intersted in the job, gain some experience in another field that will make you more marketable and apply again (this is the route I took, as I also applied right out of college).

                or

                2) Complain that it's not fair that you spent a lot of personal time giving it a shot and give up.

                My recommendation would be to take #1, but as a college grad, you're an adult and can make your own choices. I will say this, even if you apply and don't get hired, you may well learn about the hiring process a little better by going through it, may learn a bit more about the agency and whether it's a good fit for you, and may become better prepared the next time you apply if things don't work out the first go-round. Choice is yours, though.

                  I am not complaining that its not fair, simply poking some fun at the situation with sarcastic quip, but looking back at the last 8 posts, I can see sarcasim is the kiss of death on here

                  • Having a filled out SF-86 on hand doesn't hurt, either.
