  • Diplomatic Security-Investigative Assistant

    1802 series position. I have read in previous posts that IAs are mostly paper pushers. The description of duties for this current opening sounds as if there might be a little more depth to this IA position. Possibly a route to SA for Diplomatic Security? Any thoughts?

    Can't speak for DS specifically, but many federal criminal investigative agencies (including mine) have IA's, and they are basically secretaries. They do perform records checks for our cases as needed, which is quasi-investigative work, but it's no more a "route to SA" than any other clerical job would be.

      My experience is most DS IA's are glorified office staff responsible for NCIC, TECS, requesting DL photos and other mundane investigative activities. They might get a chance to work in a Command Post during a protective detail in their home town.

      Main problem with DS support in the field....DS is so small that IA, secretary, motorpool person, etc. is all dumped on that person. If the FO you are interested in has 2 or more IA's or a dedicated Office Management Specialist (OMS) - Foriegn Service speak for secretary, then I would guess you would be doing more criminal work...but almost exclusively at the FO...not going out into the field.

      If it is a direct hire position (and not contract), I think it would be a pretty good foot in the door.
