Hey there. Happy to finally say that after 10 months I finally heard that my clearance was approved! (I found out through OPM directly and my recruiter at SCIS said I should hear something from them soon.)
I will be working as a background investigator with SCIS. I have a few random questions I was hoping someone may be able to answer.
1- How long should I expect to wait for a NIPT date? Are they scheduled pretty regularly? Or will I potentially wait a few months for the next one to start?
2- The gentleman who did my in person interview identified himself as “Special Agent” so-and-so. Is that because he was an employee of OPM rather than a contractor? Or are SCIS (and other) contractors referred to as Special Agents as well?
3- I’d love to hear anyone’s advice as I start out as a total newbie in this field!
