Seven months since submitting SF-86, and now I get to meet with the special investigator next Friday! I have a silly but genuinely serious question…What should I wear to the interview? Is it like a job interview where I should dress up? Or can I wear neat, but casual clothing like jeans and a sweater?
Also, I just discovered that references could be contacted after the interview. (All this time I thought the subject interview was the last step and that it would happen after all references/verifiers were contacted. I’m still learning.) I also know that not all references are necessarily contacted. I’m just curious as to how long that particular part of the process (contacting, and maybe even visiting references) takes after the subject interview. I know there’s no exact timeline. And I’m pretty relaxed/patient about it, so it doesn’t really matter to me. Just curious about how long it might have taken for others.
