    Honors Paralegal Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FTC (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was not in Washington, DC so they were very flexible with my schedule and the fact that I needed a phone conversation. With the FTC it was love at first phone call because the way that they interview was my style. They are friendly and professional without being too rigid. I had a few interviews with different offices/bureaus until I was placed in one that was a good fit for me. While it took two months to be offered the interview, once I completed the interview it was a smooth/quick process to employment. Be patient and be persistent! Very basic interview questions but they seem to be very good at weeding out the weaklings. If you are unprepared they will know so do some interview practice if you feel insecure.
