Got this yesterday:
We appreciate the interest you have shown the National Security Agency (NSA) and the time you have invested exploring employment opportunities with us. I regret to inform you that I have been notified that your processing with NSA has been discontinued. The specific reason(s) for this has not been disclosed to me; however, it is important to understand that our employment decisions are often a result of a comprehensive evaluation of many factors.

In most cases, candidates can be reconsidered for employment after a year of the closeout decision. Questions regarding this decision may be addressed in writing to:
I’m not sure what went wrong?
I had just finished the poly and psych eval in August, to which I passed. I had to retake the poly the day after, but I passed the second time.
The Psych Eval person had me hunt some doctors down and have them fax papers, but I was told if they needed anything more once I had it faxed they’d call me.
Now a week later after the fax, I get that in my email.
Kinda really down about it now. I was going to write the letter to see, but trying to research this type of discontinuation, every result I find no one said what happened after they wrote the letter, they never come back to their topics and say what it was or if they found out what it was.
The doctors I had to hunt down were very … uncooperative. One guy no longer worked there so they told me to fax the medical record instead. The other place I went there 3 different times, but it was a facility of different doctors. The psych doctor that saw me was on vacation so another filled it out but did it without me there since I no longer go there or have insurance and the doctor would have to make an appointment (which was 3 month back wait) to get it filled out with them. The other doctor at that facility for mental health court no longer worked there.
Could this be the reason for the discontinuation? The lady on the phone when I told her this told me she’d run it by the Psych Doctor to see if it was enough and if it wasn’t they’d call me … They didn’t call me within the week, so the next week I did a followup call to see if they wanted more, they said if they did the recruiter would say so I emailed the recruiter, got no response. Two days later yesterday I get the discontinuation.
I’m … very lost.
