    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Justice.

    Interview

    The initial application included a cover letter, resume, transcript, and writing sample. After a couple of weeks, I was contacted for a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and was a mix of an informational interview and skills based interview. The first part of the interview included a discussion about the work the office did, and the second part of the interview was a test of my language skills because the position involved bilingual work. The questions in the second part of the interview focused on my resume, particularly my study abroad experience given its relevance to the position. Overall the interview was about as difficult as expected.

    Interview Questions

    • In the first part of the interview, they asked what I knew about the office, which was extremely important.   Answer Question

      3. Had I purchased a home in the city that I now live in, I'm guessing because I moved a lot with my husbands job
