Correct. 6 months then you can apply and it takes another 3 months.

Best place to work at though. Get in all the processes, do good and you have a job all year.

I did my writing skills test yesterday afternoon (for SP-004) and already have the results. I felt I failed big time but had a score of 84. Can I assume this is the final score, this was all concluded within 12 hours time frame... ?

Did you pull this information from the CRA website? It gave me my score but no breakdown.

if you are asking about Level then it shows on the result tab in the first section.
How much was your score in Test of Reasoning, you must have received the result email?

I am external to the CRA. I got an offer at the CRA in Criminal Investigations at the AU-03 level. I am an income tax professional, however. I do want to eventually move into a more income tax role at the CRA (e.g., aggressive tax planning, international tax audit, etc). Unfortunately, there are no other suitable AU-03 positions to apply to at this time.

How easy is it to move from Criminal Investigations to the other above mentioned areas? I heard Criminal Investigations may be "dead end".

As a person who is external to the CRA, am I able to view the internal postings? Are the "internal" postings actually those that are posted on the CRA website, but say "Open to CRA employees only"? Or are there even more "internal" postings out there that I can't view as a member of the public?

No there was no break down in the results tab. But that's okay, I passed the test and got an invite for SP05- Ability to communicate in writing which I completed. Not expecting a reply any time soon LOL

That will all depend upon your previous tax knowledge, experience, etc. as you will be in competition with all other AU2s and AU3s as you normally do not get to lateral over to another Au-3 job, simply because you hold another AU-3 position.

Criminal Investigation is very detailed and procedural as you are building a case for a Criminal proceeding and making sure evidence obtained will be admissible. It is not similar to working like a normal auditor as your powers and procedures as an investigator are different from that as auditor. The experience obtained may not be translatable when transferring out of Investigations. When I was still with CRA, we found that auditors who spend too long a time in Investigations lose their audit skills and find them less capable when tested on selection boards.

Internal only postings are posted on the CRA internal website that is not accessible to the public. Only those that are open to both Internal and external are posted outside on the public website.

Hi everybody! After I passed my two written exams of the CRA for a bilingual taxpayers agent, I received the security checks forms to fill out and my fingerprints were taken before I do the oral test. Does that man I'm qualified for the pool even before I do the oral exam? Thanks
