Plenty of agencies gave me the no thanks letters for no reason. Some people told me to look towards other career fields, I laughed at them. As long as you stick to it and want it real bad you WILL make it.
      Congratulations! Thanks for all the light you shed and hopefully you have time to continue doing so. Good luck!

        I know. Specially when they question your integrity, really irritating.

          Guys, I recently went for my 2nd polygraph because the first one was inconclusive. This time things were a bit quicker. I was there for four hours. Once again, the examiner said that I may have to retake it because somehow the graphics didn't said much [emoji20] I never knew I was going to be such a difficult person to test. Apparently my physiological response didnt help. I was nervous because this opportunity was a big deal for me. I finished my Bachelor's on time, even took summer classes to speed up the process and have my qualifications ready. Currently enrolled in a Masters program. I trained very hard because I was out of shape. I have done everything right and I have prepared myself in advance to pass every step in the process. For the polygraph, I just followed their instructions, sleep, eat, dont work the night before, etc. As per the examiner, my responses on the e-QIP were truthful. Unfortunately, I will have to wait and see what will happen next. [emoji20]
          Sorry to hear that. I can only imagine how frustrating it is to tell the truth and be told that you're hiding something by an examiner.

                That's exactly how my poly examiner phrased mine when I was done, which probably means you passed. Congrats!!

                      • That's the first time I can recall that a CBPO announcement opens at the GS-09 level.

                        Border Patrol has had a few, but never before for CBPOs.

                                I sure as hell would if I qualified. The one thing that can be potentially abused is that a CBPO hired at GS-5 can reapply as a GS-9 one year after working to skip from GS-7 to GS-9. Also current BP and CBPOs can apply to transfer using these announcements and take a pay cut to GS-9 step 10, good luck to new hires getting good locations now.

                                You qualify for the GS-9 grade level (starting salary $48,403) if you possess one of the following:

                                a.** One year of specialized work experience that demonstrates the ability to make rapid, accurate judgments*and decisions with

                                ***** respect to the application of the regulations, instructions, and procedures for importing*and exporting merchandise to and from the*United States, or enforcement and administration of lawsrelating to the right of persons to enter, reside in, or depart from the*United States;OR

                                b.** Two full years of graduate level education in a field of study related to law enforcement (e.g., criminal justice, homeland security, justice studies, law enforcement, courts and judicial systems, forensic technology, corrections and rehabilitation) at an accredited or pre-accredited college or university;OR

                                c.*** A combination of successfully completed graduate level education in a field of study related to law*enforcement and specialized*work experience. This will be calculated using your resume and unofficial*transcripts submitted with your application.
