    Has anyone else applied for these openings?

    I applied recently and ended up with a grade of 80. I am not sure how that stacks up, so I am wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this. This opening was either for HSS or FBI, but pretty much the same job.

    I read this and was wondering if this position gets to go out on the front lines or if you are strictly just behind the scenes support staff.

      Crock... don't see any link to an actual job posting so not too sure of the exact position but in general I can tell you this.

      Your "grade" is usually a score of your application package, it doesn't really mean anything to you without knowing the cutoff number. The cut off is where the line is drawn between candidates who are referred and those that are not. So lets say you score an 80 and the cut off is 75, then your application gets to the hiring folks for further review/ranking. How it usually works is HR takes the first cut at all applicants, scores them, and sets a cutoff. Those above the cut off move on to the actual department that has the vacancy. They review all of the referred apps and score them again. Those scoring the highest (usually 3-5 for each opening) are then interviewed.

        How would I go about finding out what the cut off number is? Do I have to wait for the posting to close? Thanks for your help!
