    You have to be eligible for a top secret clearance in order to be hired. Getting hired, however, does not get you a security clearance at all.

          You do realize that the median income for career CBPOs is considerably higher than 66K a year?

That is another unpredictable step. It clears for most everybody at different times in the process. Mine cleared after everything thing else with the BI being the only exception.
            Ok thanks a lot! Did you have an associates degree or do you remember how many credits you had? I'm curious because the person checking my qualifications was saying my associates degree does not count towards it because it's not close enough to a bachelors.

              Obviously. Which is one of the reasons why I'm sticking to the CBPO thing. 66 K is still not bad though.

              • Has anyone gone through pre academy? I just printed out all the forms im supposed to take on my first day and its a pretty thick stack of paperwork. Im assuming someone will be there during orientation to help fill out all the paperwork.

                        According to the power point presentation they had me download, from the first test Phase I (similar to written test for CBP) to the time you are at the FBI academy, it takes about 7-8 months. According to the power point, the background check only takes 4 months... who knows if they stick to their time tables, I am hoping they do though :S

                            lol thank you, I've wanted that job ever since I was seven years old and saw the X-Files but in all honestly, I would be extremely greatful to any agency that came calling first (i.e Customs).
