    I worked at FCC full-time

    Pros

    The agency is a small agency so you actually get to know many employees on a personal and professional basis

    Cons

    The agency is politically divided because its senior leadership are appointed based on who is the governing party.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the people who do the job rather than those who want to be politically accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FCC (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Two interviews - one primary and one in office. Interviewer was nice but asked tough questions about my writing sample and why communications law. We talked about each point on my resume, and the interviewer wanted to know what I learned from each experience. Interviewer was very detailed, not overly friendly, and was very focused on my experiences rather than making chit chat.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of questions about my writing sample - what was my writing style, explain the writing sample, what writing style do you think is best?   Answer Question
