I know a situation like this has been posted about it before, but just thought I’d post to at least share my timeline with others.
August 22, 2017- Received job offer with government contractor for position that required TS
August 31, 2017- SF-86 officially submitted
mid-March 2018- A few of my references contacted
March 30, 2018- Subject interview
April 4, 2018- Last reference (that I know of) contacted
May 7, 2018- Was told by FSO that my case was in adjudication (turns out it wasn’t)
June 7, 2018- Background investigator (who interviewed me) tells me my case was reopened (needed more leads/verifiers for unemployment. She took my mom down, but mom was never called anyway.)
June 21, 2018- Background investigator submits my case to “OPM review”
August 6, 2018- Notified that I was successfully adjudicated, and I have TS clearance (GREAT!), but the position I was originally hired for is no longer available (Oh…)
I’m told my clearance is good for two years (or rather, that’s how long I have to find another TS job before clearance is revoked). Recruiter says she is sending my resume throughout the company (multiple locations) to see if there are any other vacancies I’m qualified for. She doesn’t know what my chances are of getting something else. Any advice/tips about waiting or looking for TS jobs elsewhere?
