DOL conducted interviews a few weeks ago. They told me they're hoping to make offers by Christmas, but it may not happen until January. NLRB is currently interviewing and plans to make offers in January. I haven't heard anything from USACE yet.

I have not heard back from my HUD interview... I interviewed for the San Francisco location.

Anyone heard anything? Suspense is killing me.

Probably a good chance if you haven't interviewed with DOL by now you'll be dinged? Applied online near deadline.

I haven't heard anything either. I interviewed in Boston. My interviewers told me mid-December. Waiting is awful.

Yea, I was told the same thing. Was anyone told that their references have been called by HUD for regional locations and not DC?

I interviewed for a regional office, and my references were contacted the week after my interview.

Does DOL follow-up and request references if you are still in the running? Had interview a couple weeks ago but have heard nothing since.

I interviewed with DOL through my school's OCI in September, and in mid November, I was called to provide additional information, but no follow up since then.

Additional information meaning references (for example), or just meaning the information that was required for people who went through the online application? (Thanks for the info!)

I think it was just for a writing sample, which I think online applicants were already required to submit. I did get a sense that some cuts have already been made, at least for people who interviewed through oci, because some other people I know were not contacted.

I had a friend who straight up asked about her status and was told she was not selected. So, if you want an update about your status, I think they will share that info with you.

Is that considered an honors program? I think most of us on here are talking about post-graduation positions.

It's not labelled "honors," but yes they do have a traditional post-grad hiring program.

I'm in the running for a post-grad position and was told that they'll be letting people know this week or next.

You just made my day. I was so afraid they had already made offers for post-grad positions.

I am sorry but I am sure something will come along. I did have a question, did you have a first interview or was this a rejection without an interview?

If you applied online, I doubt we'll here anytime soon. I think they moved the deadline to Dec. 6

Yes I saw that in the FCC's release in November. I interviewed way back in August and I was wondering if they have started to do any callbacks yet. I know it is early but the waiting is excruciating sometimes. My question to the poster was if he/she had interviewed or was rejected simply on the application. I was trying to get a better idea.

Also dinged by FCC today. I had a screener in August through my school's OCI.

ETA: To the poster above, hope this means you are still in the running!

Also waiting on FCC. I have not received a rejection or a CB invitation. Screener in August, sent application in September.
