Q: I am not on Camp Pendleton, how can I get a brief?

A: Please contact us to see if we will be in your area, or ask your career planner to contact us to coordinate a unit brief. We are able to conduct interviews over the phone or via e-mail.

Q: Will I need to travel to Camp Pendleton to stand an Interview Panel?

Q: How long does the screening process take? 

A: On average, the screening process takes 3-4 weeks to complete and receive a determination from an Interview Panel. More time is available if deemed necessary by the CI screening section.
