Hi, I also received an e-mail but have not heard back since.


Same here.

Any FDIC updates?


Contacted FDIC recently bc I had another offer, they said they’ve already contacted those with offers and formal rejection letters will be sent out once their background checks go through. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Has anyone heard anything from FCC? Applied mid-October and have not heard anything since.

No word here. My app was "referred" back in mid september but haven't heard anything from them. Also haven't seen anyone say anything TLS.

Happy new year, everyone!

With the holidays over (*sigh*), has anyone heard from DOL since receiving an active consideration email in November? Anything at this point would be helpful and much appreciated--this wait/silence is killer. Thanks much!

Happy new year! I had an interview with a regional office the week before Christmas, and have not heard anything since. I also had an active consideration email in November. Best of luck!

You're not going to be hearing from anyone from when the government shutdown began

This seems definitely true for agencies that are closed due to lack of appropriations (eg, HUD, although HUD appears to have sent out offers before the shutdown according to this thread). I wonder if that’s the case for DOL, which is funded through October 1 and is open for business. I could definitely see delays occurring, however, between the holidays and the overall uncertainty of the shutdown.

Even though some agencies are still open, OPM is not. OPM being shut down is going to have some affect on hiring, especially since they do the background checks. My office has a couple hiring actions that we are moving forward on, but it is unknown when or if we will be able to submit "firm offers."

This may have a larger effect on those being hired outside of the agency/federal government as I imagine those already in the system will not need additional checks (not sure about this though). the Honors Programs probably fall into this category. I see no reason that informal offers will not be extended though, subject to the background check being completed.
