For those of you who amended or supplemented your application, how did you go about doing this?

Updating from earlier reply now that I'm done:

1. July 2017
2. Early October - I am a UBE transfer so I already had my score from WA.
3. Changed from 3rd Dept to 2nd Dept in late October after moving from NJ->Brooklyn. A few days later (early Nov) I got a call from someone in C&F at 2nd Dept with a long list of shit I needed to fix in my application. Resubmitted 11/20. Got a call on 11/24 that my current employer affidavit was still not up to snuff. Resubmitted that on 11/27.
4. 12/11
5. 12/26
6. Nope. Fired from one job and one speeding ticket. Interviewer asked about the firing but because she thought it was funny.
7. Passed.
8. 1/31

I had my interview 1/31 and haven’t heard back from 2nd department. Called today and they said the interviewer hasn’t submitted anything yet. Has this happened to anyone else? How long did it take to hear back?

I'm confused about these embedded codes in the Orientation to the Profession videos. I've watched four and haven't heard any. What are these supposed to be?

You won't hear them. The codes appear for a few seconds in a corner of the video at different points in each video.

When should you expect an email from the Second Department inviting you to apply? Will it come before or after February results are released? I thought that BOLE sends the names of applicants to the individual departments depending on their address on file. Wanted to get a jump on the Welcome to the Profession videos but haven't received any info from the Second Department yet.
