Do you happen to know what "confirmation" entails? The regional office at which I interviewed is at this stage, and it's taking forever.
Can anyone answer this question? What wondering how long it takes for DC to respond and confirm?
I'd like to know as well. I'm waiting on an agency's hiring freeze to be lifted. I figure it could be any day now, since the appropriations bill was signed by the President over 2 weeks ago. I've been told I'd be hired as soon as the hiring freeze is lifted, and my agency seems to have gotten 99.5% of their Congressional Budget Request.
So far, crickets. This appropriations bill was the delayed one from October, so you'd think the money would be available right away, but I'm sure the central office in DC now has to do their own internal budgetary process.
