    I emailed the HR gal today to ask when we would be getting results. She said results are going out next week. Only a few more days until we find out..

    I checked my government jobs profile, and I noticed that my Oakland status has changed to Eligible for referral to dept. What are other people profiles saying?

    Same.

    I called HR and the only info I was able to get was "the analyst has not had a chance to send letters, she'll try today..."

    Does anyone have something different listed under their status other than "Eligible"?

    so does "eligible" mean we passed our interview?

    not sure,
    i called and got that info early this morning, before i saw your post about the government jobs website. either way, it looks like we all have to wait another week for a definitive answer...

    well on a brighter side, I update all my new emt-p certs today and the process of doing so was very painless. The hr representative I talked to was very helpful, I looked at my app 10 min later and everything was uploaded. hopefully this means good things to come

    I'm guessing so. Mine never changed so I am done it would appear. Good luck to all of you that are moving on!

    stay positive, this is nothing more than a HUGE assumption.... the only sure thing is we're all still in it!

    I also received the updated profile. Anybody on here do the bilingual certification? They basically just pulled you into a separate room and talked to you in your 2nd language for 15 mins. Hoping that helped my chances.

    yeah i did the bilingual test also, from the sound of it it was Pass/Fail and according to the person administering the test it had no weight on our oral scores.

    Unfortunately, I didn't do the bilingual test. French isn't a language that is spoken highly of in Oakland. From those I know who are bilingual, it consisted mainly of a conversation in that "language". Curious if being bilingual held much weight. We shall see shortly.

    Unfortunately, I did not get to take it ether. They did not test ASL. I have 3 years of college sign language

    And the waiting continues... I wonder what's causing the delay.
