I have a friend who is thinking about law school but before going she would like to get some paralegaling experience (she has two years of interning for a small firm in Virginia, but wants full time employment preferrably in a government role). She recently asked me about contractor positions at the DOJ (specifically through a company called Labat). Can anyone with experience and information shed light on this company and what it's like to work for them? I tried telling my friend about USAJobs.gov as the place to search for government paralegal opportunities and she explained that they are sparce on USAJobs because most of that work is contracted out. Is this true? I worked at private firms before and during law school so I wouldn't know... I did a little research on Labat and they appear to be a subsidiary of USIS. I don't know anything about these companies or contracting as a paralegal, but I want to give my friend some good advice before she nabs the first job that comes her way after undergrad. I figured someone on here may have worked for Labat/USIS or they may have experience through DOJ or other government work with contracted paralegals.
Any substantive insight is appreciated. Thanks for your time.
