  • Good luck to everyone who will be applying for the new announcement. I pray you succeed with all of your future endevours. Also, please be patient with this whole process. It takes a while. I'm sure many of us who have gone through the process can attest to that, lol. Best wishes!

I've seen NO movement for any west coasters.
      I EOD in San Fran in 2 weeks. Only options i was given was there and LA

          Not necessarily. It's usually just a small, local medical center that they outsource it to. Mine was in the physical therapy section of a med center.

          • Its so difficult being patient with this process, and I feel wrong considering most of you have been in the process for a year longer than I have. Not sure if reading these forums helps or hurts, as sometimes im discouraged by how long you all have been waiting. But hopefully the hiring is more prevalent than 2-3 years ago.

                I chose Harpers Ferry, WV. Being in the sticks of VA gives me very few options...lol

                      Nice. I chose Miami. Maybe I'll make a vacation out of it.

                      • I was told BY MHC that in order to have my degree qualify, that I had to obtain it in within 9 months from when the announcement ended (It took me 12). I was just reading the new announcement and not one time does it give you a time-frame of completion. This was the difference between me qualifying as a 5 and 7. Don't get me wrong I'm happy that I even qualify, but if I can qualify as a 7 then they should give me a 7. Does anyone know the rule about this? I would think it would be against civil service law not to post something like that on the announcement and then tell me my degree doesn't count.

                          The exact same thing happened to me. Not only that, I was 3 credits shy of obtaining my degree about 8 months after announcement, which would have allowed me to get GS-7. I got GS-5 because of ONE class.

                            When did you get the famous call? I've been waiting for Florida for a few years now, re-applying every announcment. Still waiting for my background to clear.

                              That sucks. I'm sorry Bud. I mean it's not the end of the world but i just feel like we should be somewhat rewarded since we went to college and got a degree. It's not fair that we are stuck with huge student loans, while a cashier from Walmart can come in and qualify for the same rank as us.

                                My thoughts exactly. MHC told me that if I wanted GS-7 I had to re-apply at the next opening announcement, which would also restart this whole process. I Guess GS-5 is better than waiting another 2 years. Like you said, I'm happy that I even qualify, but I also feel like all my hard work obtaining my college degree should be rewarded.
