    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York County District Attorney (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process was very pleasant. I applied for the position through indeed and a few days later I got an email to schedule a first interview. The following week I went to the office for my first interview and about 3 days later I got a call to schedule a second round of interviews. A week and a half later I got a call with a job offer!

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at New York County District Attorney (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very laid back interview. I was interviewed by two members of the staff, both extremely nice and welcoming. However I felt as if I was an inconvenience, it appeared that they forgot they were expecting me. The interview started 20 minutes behind schedule and one of the interviewers stepped out after 5 minutes due to a 'meeting'. Not a good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York County District Attorney (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I think the whole applying and hearing back about an interview process took about a month. The interview wasn't too bad. Wasn't too long so that was good. I met with an ADA who was pretty nice. He asked me pretty basic questions, asked a lot of things about my resume, cover letter, and writing sample, so make sure to look back at old things you might not think about too often so you're ready to talk about them.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you take the classes that you took? What was your favorite class? What clubs are you in and why? What do you do in those clubs? What have you done at past jobs? Why do you want to intern for the Manhattan DA? Why do you want to be a lawyer and do you know which type of law you want to practice and why?   Answer Question

The interview felt conversational and they seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me and what I wanted to do with this job and in my future. It was a wonderful interview experience!
