Has anyone heard from the USAO for either SDNY or EDNY? Thanks!

Why does EDNY have a 2 part application process (sending resume/cover first and then receiving their application via mail second? -- https://www.justice.gov/usao-edny/assis ... -positions). Is there any significance behind receiving their application after I send in my resume (I am aware that you can just easily download the application online too)?

Can anyone talk more about their hiring process? Thank you.

I interviewed with EDNY in early January and was offered Jan. 10. I had until the end of the month to accept/reject. I know some people were done with the SDNY process in early January (not me).

I went to a shitty second tier east coast law school, clerked for a nearby but non-SDNY district court judge, clerked for a non 2d Circuit or DC Circuit COA, spent 3 years at a v30ish firm that’s not in NYC. I got an interview where they basically asked me why NYC for 40 minutes and then sent a form rejection.

Just to clarify, was your third-round interview in early January?

This is all AUSA positions, right?

I have applied to 30+ offices and got three interviews. Realizing that my odds aren’t really ever going to increase as my credentials will stay the same (median MVP, non sdny d ct clerk, non 2/9 clerk, v20 for 4 years). And HYS or people with connections will keep popping up. Wondering what do next.

Seems like this person is talking about a 1L summer position.

I’m the guy from a second tier above. I’m planning on staying at my firm and focusing on getting work I can call trial experience in an interview. If I don’t make partner I’ll probably apply to main justice and all the USAO offices I have connections to. Of course I’ll be a 10th year by then, so that might hurt me, but not really sure what else I can do.

I recently got dinged after a full-on first round SDNY interview (4 folks, civil and criminal, etc.). Stung, as I thought it went well, but whatever. Thing is, my rejection letter seemed to suggest that I not apply again in the future--it said something like "we don't want this rejection to discourage you from applying to OTHER government agencies."

Can someone confirm that this is just a form letter and that I'm being oversensitive?

Somewhere in this forum there was a post that said they won't take your app again (in SDNY only) for 3 or 4 years. The post I think had some caveats as well but I'm not sure exactly what it said. Good news is, you have to be competitive for other districts, I'd think.

Wish I had known that before applying -- probably would have waited a year or two.

Was this SDNY or EDNY?

I have an EDNY first round interview coming up -- wondering how far I have to go, and if it really does take an entire year to get hired.
