I interned with IRS field office SBSE last summer and had interview with them. Heard back that they wrote me a recommendation to hiring committee. It's been dead silence since then.


I have a callback with IRS CC International next Friday.

Same. Anyone?


Just received an invite for a DOL phone interview. Applied close to the deadline and never received a confirmation email. Anyone else? Anyone know anything about their process, timeline, etc. this year?

Does an email from the US Army Corps of Engineer asking for a writing sample mean anything?

I believe all applicants were to include a writing sample in their application to the Civilian Honor's Program.

Has anyone heard about callbacks from CFPB? I had a screener three weeks ago and have yet to hear anything either way.

I was invited to DC for an in-person interview but haven't been informed of the date yet. An interviewer told me that each office within the CFPB is operating on its own schedule, so if your screener was with a different office they might just be taking longer.

Yeah I know two people who got a CB email. One of them is presumably the poster above.

New anon here - had some references contacted in early October, some have still not been called. Would be interested to know if anyone scheduled an interview yet, as I'm starting to get a bit worried.

Any chance we hear from OCC this week? During my interview, they made it seem like they wanted to complete hiring by mid-November (i.e., all offers accepted). Unfortunately, with the new program, past years won't be indicative of what to expect.

They seemed to still be sticking with their "before thanksgiving" deadline so maybe some will still hear back by this Friday. Really hoping so.
