I had two rounds of A&P interviews in-office.

OP here. Thanks so much. What was the difference between the two rounds? To the extent you feel comfortable answering, did you get an offer? I was called in for what I guess is the first round. I've had several one round interviews with other firms, so I'm a little nervous at the prospect of more interview rounds.

The first interview consisted of two 30 minute interviews and the second consisted of four 30 minute interviews.

So I know that clerkships allow us to apply for experienced-attorney positions in DOJ and other parts of the federal government. Anyone know when it would make sense to start applying for federal government jobs if interested? (If there is a posting of interest now, is it too early to be worth applying to start in the fall, post-clerkship?)

No. Depending on what background check is required, it may take a while. Also if the agency is interested in hiring clerks they may be willing to be flexible. The worst that happens is it doesn’t work out schedule-wise (but I’d be surprised if May to fall was insurmountable. Also if you get to that point in the process you’ll have made a good impression for the future).

Hey, all -

SDNY/EDNY/DDC clerk here.

Pretty soon I feel like I'll be posting in the vale of tears. I've applied to a broad range of NYC and DC firms, including cold e-mails and through receptions, and so far, nothing has come of it. I've gotten a handful of interviews, that have led to 0 job offers. I have some fairly resume points that might contribute to the offer rate, but can't say more without outing myself.

Is anyone else in the same boat? Are there any firms still hiring clerks? I was told a few months ago that, for instance, Fried Frank had completed its hiring, but I keep getting recruiter e-mails saying that they're looking for clerks.

Any thoughts, insight, or advice would be appreciated.

AIII clerk from a flyover. I'm still searching despite being barred in multiple populous states and submitting 150+ apps in a number of major markets. You're not the only one out there. Just gotta keep applying! All it takes is one.

Has anyone heard anything from DLA Piper NYC?
