One of the DA offices.
Just for posterity's sake (assuming future generations of Hastings students check this thread), did you notice any major differences between the DA hiring and the biglaw hiring processes? Was the callback significantly different? Was the timing any different?
I know I got a lot from reading last year's threads, so I figure it might be worth writing down for next year (if you don't mind).
I'll also admit to being curious...
Generally, DA will be much slower.
I had no callback interview, just requested references a few weeks after screening interview. However, I was under special circumstances, which I don't want to go too deeply into outside of PM.
You will most likely not even get your application reviewed until after biglaw has done callbacks and offers. Santa Clara DA has not even conducted their screening interviews yet.
Pay is much lower, or non-existent, but I am sure everyone knows that.
