      I'm a vet with a masters degree and received an invite. We can only speculate as to the reasoning really. I've been trying to figure out what it is that's unique about my application, and really I can only come up with a couple things.

      -10 point vet
      -Masters
      -Previous high level security clearance

      Besides those three things I might describe myself as rather vanilla. Perhaps there is just a specific thing they are digging for? I know the announcement said to highlight autonomy and amount of supervision in each position, so I really focused on that in my resume bullets.

      Having been in the Air Force, though, I can tell you that PERFECTLY following instructions was probably a factor. Not using a period or comma on the same fashion they did in their sample could have done it, for all we know.

        That's how all "entry-level" 1811 positions have been in recent years. They're not actually entry level.

          Only from a pay perspective. Hah.

          Don't you know? Entry level these days means 5-10 years experience in a senior leadership role.

                Did you get an invite for the last announcement?

                  Back when I took it, it was a three page handwritten biography of yourself and the only other test was the Wonderlic. That was the first meeting I had with the agents doing my background. They probably won't tell you that so just be ready.

                    Well I'm in trouble, then. My handwriting is awful.

As we were told during our interview, they really looked at the whole person to see if they would be a fit. There was one person who was right out of college that could speak a difficult language, someone who was currently an enlisted agent trying to transfer to civ, many (most.. 90%) with masters degrees and a little bit of work experience but nothing major, then someone who was an FBI agent who wanted to work for a smaller agency.
                          I often wondered how I was selected for the interview also. I'm a veteran with a BA in criminology and currently working a a police dispatcher for a small police department. If I remember correctly, I was one of very few people who had less than a masters degree and got an interview. To be honest, after learning about everyone else's background I was very flattered that my name was thrown in the hat with so many well qualified applicants.

                              • Pretty sure the answer to this is no, but does anyone know if OSI will bring you in at a higher step to try and match previous salary (like USPIS used to do)?
