    Selection Process After Being Referred?

    Good Morning,

    I received a referred status on 2 positions I applied for in Oakland, Ca. I was just wondering what happens at this point?
    Any info is great help. Thank you very much!

    That’s good news because you at least made a referral list. The bad news is you may or may not be called for an interview. The hiring manager may opt to pull a candidate from a different list.

    You’re getting close. Fingers crossed.

    Thank you for that info, would you or anyone else know what the usual amount of time is to hear anything back? I've been on the referred list for a little bit over 2 weeks now and I still haven't heard anything.

    There is really no standard time frame. It all depends on HR and the hiring manager and how long they take to do their thing. Could be days, weeks, or months.

    This is my timeline from 2009:

    NOTE: I only applied for 1 location - DFW area.

    Referred mid July (applied off an Open: Continuous bid in January).
    Interviewed October 1st.
    Verbal offer received just prior to Thanksgiving (because I called and asked for a status).
    I countered initial offer and received an emailed Tentative Offer the first week of December (which I accepted).
    Completed fingerprints and drug testing as fast as I could....
    Sworn in January 3rd 2010 at ZFW.

    Nothing moves fast in the .gov
