        You are all going to drive yourselves crazy. Just relax and wait until we hear more from an official source.

          I was just called by testing company... I guess some locations are having difficulties so you may have to reschedule the test date

          Have no idea what the answer is, but for what it's worth I am a current fed leo 6c covered, 2 Masters, former street cop. I applied about 5 minutes after the opening went live, got an email saying I completed the assessments.

          Any good study guide recommendations besides the standard DHS issued.

            Honestly, LSAT prep was way better than that study guide.

          Well then this confirms it. The completed assessments email was not dependent on the time you applied. There’s no way LadyKiller was not a part of the first 1000 applicants

          Maybe this will help all that received the"all assessment completed email" ":

          What is Direct Hire Authority? Direct Hire Authority (DHA) is a temporary authority granted to agencies by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to hire individuals in an expedited manner. DHA allows agencies to:  Waive the rating and ranking system (including examinations, if required);  Suspend veterans’ preferences;  Eliminate the “Rule of Three” – where hiring managers are presented the top three candidates. Agencies must still post vacancy announcements on USAJOBS and include information about the use of DHA, but when the agency identifies a qualified candidate, an employment offer can be made on the spot and an appointment can be made immediately. Current Government-wide Direct Hire Authority OPM granted government-wide DHA in June 2003 for Information Technology Management (Information Security) positions under grade series GS-2210, GS-9 and above. This authority is currently active with no expiration date. Obtaining Direct Hire Authority DHA may be granted either government-wide or to a specific agency after a determination has been made that there is either (1) a critical need or (2) a shortage of candidates. An agency may request DHA from OPM by presenting OPM with evidence demonstrating a critical need or a shortage of candidates. Alternatively, OPM may independently determine that there is a critical need or a shortage of candidates. OPM will typically provide expirations for DHA. Agencies must present additional evidence to OPM to request an extension. If no expiration is provided, OPM will periodically review the DHA. While DHA shortens the hiring process in several areas, not all hiring procedures are affected:  DHA may be used for temporary, limited or term hiring, along with full-time employment;  Agencies may use DHA to convert employees to the excepted service, or those on temporary, limited or term appointments to a permanent career or career-conditional appointment. Agencies must provide public notice if they use DHA to do so, follow all applicable laws and regulations, and give full consideration to all candidates;  DHA does not waive qualification requirements – all candidates selected using DHA must meet the same qualification requirements as other candidates;  DHA does not waive the one-year probationary period or restrictions on movement in the first three months;  DHA may still be used after the expiration only if a written employment offer was sent prior to the expiration date, unless otherwise specified by OPM. Recent examples of agency use of DHA include the Department of Homeland Security and the US Air Force receiving DHA in 2010 to hire nearly 1,700 cybersecurity professionals over two years. The 2012 DHS Homeland Security Advisory Council recommended that DHS use its existing DHA to hire 600 new cybersecurity personnel.

            So will we not have to take the exam? Has anyone confirmed this yet?

            This is good information, although has anyone gotten a definite answer to this issue?

            This is probably comparing apples to oranges however, I remember when I was going to apply for Border Patrol, I didn't have to test either because I qualified for the GL-09. Again, not saying this is exactly the same because two different agencies are just that, two different agencies but still interesting.

              Same. Does that mean the grade eligibility is inaccurate? I was only found eligible for 7.

              Nah haven’t yet

          • Quick question:

            There is a phone number and email address in the “ no further action required” email.

            Has anybody actually called or emailed to ask what the email means?

              I called, no answer. I was sent to voice recorder telling me to email if I had any questions. I emailed shortly after that and no answer yet. This was last week.

              Same. When you call, it says please send an email. Been about two weeks since I sent the email, no response.

              Same here. They're all jacked up due to the testing issues last weekend.

              I applied as a 9 only and received an e-mail that due to the high volume of qualified applicants that mine is not being considered at this time (I applied the first day). In hindsight maybe I should have put in for 7 as well, but if I have to relocate then I can't take too much of a pay cut. Best of luck to anyone out there who is moving forward in the process.

          • Just got the thanks, but no thanks email. It stated I was not
            being considered due to the volume of applicants. I believe they are trying to say that I am not on any SAC’s radar and therefore would not be considered for direct hire.
