I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Washington, DC) in May 2014.
Job was not posted to USAjobs. Application included both undergraduate and law school transcripts, writing samples, cover letter, and resume. 1 in-person interview with 6 ALJs and office manager. The ALJs who interview rotate each year but generally the ALJs have extremely varying personalities. 1 in particular tries to intimidate but most are very friendly. They hope to hire someone with some rudimentary understanding of energy regulation but do not expect you to know too much as the industry is very complicated. Understanding sections 205 and 206 of the Federal Power Act is a great start.
- They asked a few questions about my resume in particular including extra curriculars from undergrad (over 7 years prior). Other specific questions included: 1. How do you feel about excel spreadsheets? 2. What would you do if you had a memo due to 1 judge but needed to review 100+ pages of testimony at the same time. 1 Answer
