It seems like most of the ones I've talked to on the East coast don't want to look at applicants until spring or later (after bar even). Same in the west, California, etc.?
Gonna hate not knowing for the next 8 months at least..
I think it just varies by office. My office just hires when they have an opening, period. Although I don't know what you mean by smaller. We only have 5 attorneys in my office. There are about 4 offices in my district supervised by the same elected DA, for a total of maybe 14-15 attorneys over four counties.
But even the larger DA office I worked for (District was around 400,000 people total) only hired when they had openings. They don't do annual hiring like larger urban offices or state-wide offices.
