    I was under the impression that anyone who just graduated with a bachelors or master can apply. As long as its not over the two year mark.

      Didn't someone just mention that military applicants only qualify if a person got deployed prior to completing a degree program?

      • I had a young man ask me a question today that I did not have the answer to and I figured maybe you guys could help him out. When it comes to these recent graduate announcements is there a window that they let you apply in if you don't have your degree in hand? In other words say the announcement closes on August 1,2016 and he will not be awarded his masters at commencement until August 6,2016. Is there a window from the time an announcement closes (I.E. 30 days) or do you have to have that degree in hand at time of application?

        • I would like to know if the test that we took during the application process is the actual exam, or if there will be one later?

          I've already taken one for the FBI and passed, and I have one for the USSS in a few weeks (not looking forward to working there after reading about morale issues).

          I just find it way too convenient that the USMS would of done it this way.

          Thanks for any responses

            Pretty sure its 30-90 days grace period, but that's probably dependent on the agency. My agency hired an employee under RG while they had 2 months left in their graduate program.

              Q&A Pertaining to Military & RGP in the Pathways Internship and RGP directive.....

              Question: An individual completes qualifying educational requirements for a degree in May 2012. Subsequently, this individual enters the military and is released from active duty in July 2014. How much time will this individual have to apply for a Recent Graduates position?

              Answer: The 2-year window to apply to the Recent Graduates Program will begin in July 2014 and end in July 2016 (provided that the individual meets the definition of “veteran” in 5 U.S.C. 2108).

              Question: What if an individual completes a degree, and then 6 months later is called back to active duty for 4 years? How long would this individual be eligible for the Recent Graduates Program?

              Answer: This individual would be eligible for an additional 18 months after being discharged or released from active duty (provided that the individual meets the definition of “veteran” in 5 U.S.C. 2108).

              Question: What if an individual is in the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) and has a 4-year service obligation after graduation; will this individual still be eligible to apply after being discharged?

              Answer: The 2-year window of eligibility will begin upon completion of the 4-year service obligation (provided the individual meets the definition of “veteran” in 5 U.S.C. 2108). However, under no circumstances can the eligibility period extend beyond 6 years from the date of completing the educational requirements for a degree.

              Question: An individual received a degree in May 2012 while serving on active duty. This individual still has 3 more years of service. Will this individual still be eligible for the Recent Graduates Program?

              Answer: Yes. This individual will be eligible to apply for positions for 2 years from the date he or she is released from active duty (provided the individual meets the definition of “veteran” in 5 U.S.C. 2108). However, under no circumstances can the eligibility period extend beyond 6 years from the date of completing the educational requirements for a degree.

                Just the first assessment you took online. That is all.

                  Yes, the assessments we completed are the only written/academic testing in the hiring process. The 2012 hiring push bogged down during the in-person testing phase and it was down hill from there. So, in theory the online testing is designed to expedite the selection process and develop a "most highly qualified" list of interview worthy candidates. I have done both the FBI and USSS as well and I much prefer this method.

                  -Ditto on the morale issue with the USSS. I turned their offer down for that reason and a few other things. It is going to be a ****-show in DC the next 4 years, regardless who is elected.-

                      I think I will test with them, but I may also back out down the road. I'm hoping The Marshals works out. I'm 31, so running out of time to be picky.

                          How valid is this information? I'm not challenging your information by any means so I apologize if it comes off like that, just wondering where you got that from? Further, do you know how many applications will be accepted? Thanks.

                            Pretty sure that's from USMS internal email if I remember correctly.

                            • Anyone have any good intel on what the cutting score mark will be for the assessment we took? I was told from OPM yesterday that we should be hearing something back within 3 to 4 Business weeks.

                                I would think only someone with a HR contact could get that intel. I did just get off the phone with a retired Deputy Marshal (retired this year) and he stated that just under 50% of the current USMS workforce will hit their retirement marks within the next 5 years! He said the USMS did a mass hiring when he was younger and that large group of deputies, including him, are hitting the retirement stage of their career and the USMS is pushing a mass hire again.

                                Seems like this opportunity comes around roughly every 2-3 decades guys/gals.
