      don't quit your current job and not to put too much hope on it.
      did you apply in august 08? how long do you wait till you contact IA and how did you get their number? I met with my BI early dec and i guess he finished the file around first week of January. I haven't heard from anyone since....

        Well I am about to apply for the CBP position. I am pretty sure I am qualified for the position according to the job posting requirements. I just want to make sure I qualified.

        I have been a police officer for about 13 months, and I have held various jobs for the past 2-3 years prior to me becoming an officer. I also have around 44 college hours. This does meet the requirements, correct?

        Also, what are the chances of me being stuck at an Airport if I select the Texas/New Mexico CMC or the Washington Northern Border locations?
        Thanks and good luck to all those applying!
        Depending on how well you can write you should qualify as a GS-7, just on your LE experience alone. Most likely you will wind up at a land border if you put in for Texas/New Mexico. Although in Washington there are a couple larger seaports/airports. It really is just a numbers game. There are more people at the land borders, so there are more people to quit resulting in more openings to be filled.
        But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

        For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

          You have a long wait. I would NOT be contacting IA if it's only been a month. Backgrounds generally take 6-18months to clear.

          • That last announcement was disappointing. With all the talk about career fairs and hiring increases you think there would have been more than 6 locations opening up. Does anyone Know how often they do a nationwide announcement? Do they do one once a year? Is there a hiring
            "season". More specifically how often do they open up JFK? The officer who administered my VBT at JFK said that they are always in need of people and are constantly hiring.
