Government Employment (non-DOJ)

Postby Teoeo » Sat Jul 03, 2010 6:45 am

I am interested in the PI side of labor law and I am wondering how competitive agencies like the NLRB/DOL/EEOC (or state agencies like the DIR in California) are in comparison to the DOJ and Big Law.

It's a scary world out there!

EEOC honors program is much less competitive than DOJ. That said, they have fewer positions, so you had best be able to demonstrate through your resume an interest in labor work.

BY the way, you might also consider the PMF to get into the department of labor. You wouldn't be practicing law, but you would get involved in policy decisions. It is a management fast track program.

Showing interest shouldn't be too hard, I have quite a few relevant internships, I just hope I can get a job in 3 years! =D

Make sure you go after appropriate classes your 2L year and do well in them. Probably also important to do well in con and civ pro.

Also, you should reach out to which ever professors at your school specialize in labor law and speak to them about it.

Thanks, I had thought about the classes, but I didn't think about Con or Civ Pro. The prof. idea is also good, networking ftw.
