I’m currently processing for a DoD IC agency.
I submitted my SF-86 on the first week of December, aside from a followup two weeks later, I haven’t heard anything since.
At this point, while I’d love to keep processing for the agency, I’m not going to put all of my eggs in one basket and there’s lots of writing on the wall that layoffs are coming in the next six months to a year. As such, I’m looking for a new job in the private sector.
I know in this EO from 1997 that they mention "Employment coverage has been reduced from 10 to 7 years. All employments during the coverage period will be verified with personal coverage obtained for employments of 6 months or more.”
Is this still true? Or if I start a new job, will the investigator come knocking on my door two weeks later demanding to speak to my brand new manager?
