    I'm currently considering changing my Geo from NY to SWB because I'm a recent graduate and I don't want to be another person doing nothing with a degree. My question is about how soon would they call for the PFT 1 and SI? and when they do call all the testing would be somewhere in the SWB right. They wouldn't give me a direct port for the process to continue on?
    i am in the process and from NJ and all my stuff has been within the area up here as yoda mentioned and it is a big difference if you havent been out there especially if your used to the city. Also don't think about it as "another person doing nothing with a degree" because if you get the job and your out in the SWB and your unhappy you are now "another unhappy person with a degree wishing they did something else." especially your a recent graduate and eager to start working or have friends getting a real job. been there done that, i just hit the start of my 3 yrs since graduation. It goes fast and your still young some people don't get on until their late 20's/30's.

    For me, i wanted to go to the SWB because i have been out that way a few times for a couple weeks visiting people (friends, family). I am only 25 and not married, no kids and I don't mind a change of pace. My family is mainly here on the east coast a few in AZ, CA and a few friends in TX, but anyone would be a phone call away or a fairly quick plane ride to visit.

    If you read back thru the thread you will see some people waiting 2-5years for a job in their area, but would half of them change their mind and go somewhere else? probably not, they are still close to friends and family and they found a way to make an honest living in the meantime. It is not worth rushing thru everything and then regreting it later or wishing you did something else instead. Take one day at a time and there is plenty of time to "put your degree to good use".

      I'm not sure about the BI, I'm still working on getting it cleared the first time haha. So I'm not sure I think Yoda said a while ago it was good for two years. Don't quote me on that though, I'm not 100% sure. Ya taking the pft1 one day then the pft2 next day would probably never happen, but that would be crazy if it did haha. Mnewsom21 you are definetly not the only one that could use a green check for BI right about now. I feel like I've been waiting for it to go green for decades now haha. Yet I wake up every Tuesday and Thursday only to be disappointed. We will see what next Tuesday brings I guess.

        Thanks Rms16, good to know that. when you says ..."As long as nothing major has happened..." getting old every year is an issue? just wondering, man in this long process, it could be an issue lol

          • I got good news and I got bad news. I finally met my background investigator. I was waking up in the morning and there she was, asking me all types of questions and whatnot. I went to the bathroom to freshen up and she started to leave. I ran after her but it was too late she was already out the front door.

            Then I woke up and realized it was a dream. I check CASS again (since it's a Thursday) and still no update. Oh well, I guess it's back to reality. Happy Thursday to you all. lol

                        Lmao that's hilarious and probably a huge tease! At first I was like what??? The investigator woke you up at your house?? Haha. Hopefully you get the call to meet them soon! I just got contacted to schedule my polygraph for 2 weeks from now, so I'm very anxious to get that out of the way. Then I will be in the same boat as you, just waiting on my background investigator.
