Last time I have used marijuana was 10 months ago. 2 months ago I applied for CIA internship positions, even though I knew that they required at least 12 months since last drug use to even apply. In the application I made it very clear that I have not used any drugs within the last 10 months. I had very low expectations that I would get a response.
A week went by and I was asked to take an aptitude and personality test. I was surprised to hear back. I took the test and then silence for 2 months. 2 days ago I get an email with an invitation to an interview. As happy as I may be to get this far into the application process, I am also confused and worried with what can come next. Does the recruitment center not take drug factor into consideration? Do they leave it up to the investigators to make a final decision? Would it be wise to decline going to the event if it can negatively impact future employment?
