INTERVIEW!!!!!!!

(seriously not meaning to gloat here... I am sure that I will be properly dinged in time. But the notices have started to go out. I got an e-mail, my status online hasn't changed yet. as announced, it doesn't say which components.)

(edited: okay, clearly I got the e-mail at the same time as everyone else! it's probably EOIR for me, too, b/c they were one of my components.)

I wonder how many EOIR will interview. There are an insane amount of positions open this year (compared to previous years, especially in OCIJ), and this is the first time in forever that the BIA is hiring through the HP (though they are probably hiring previous JLCs). It seems like they may be interviewing a lot of people (judging from the amount who have already said they got the email). Oh, I'm just really to excited to listen in Corporations right now and would rather blab on TLS. OMG!

Probably antitrust. I only applied to ATR and just got the email. I think both ATR and Crim only interview those that rank them #1.

So far I have not been selected. Posting stats without the department is not helpful, people!

Update from Ms. Williams:

"As a follow-up, a few minutes ago we issued a general email message to everyone currently selected for interview. Again, the specific notification messages identifying the selecting components probably will go out tomorrow. All the hiring components (except OSG) are moving forward, but as soon as we notify folks, we'll see withdrawals start hitting the system as people who accepted other positions update their application status. As the components get greater clarity, they will likely supplement their interview lists. We restrict the number of applicants each component can select for interviews based on the number of positions they are hiring for so that we can support government-funded interviews. We understand how frustrating it is to wait, but appreciate all the wonderful applicants who have expressed interest in working for DOJ."

So no, email, no interview? That's it?

Which components do you think have not selected?

What does it mean if your application status is still at received?

Did you receive a separate e-mail indicating your interview is with the US Trustee?

No. I just know because they were the only component I ranked.

She works for DOJ. You can see these posts on the Avue site (where you applied) under the Community tab.

On that note, she posted something else--

Hi,folks:

Please give us time to update the online status and send the notifications. If for some reason the initial email we sent out gets routed to your spam file, or your email crashes, or anything else goes awry, be assured that we will follow up.

Lots of immigration and refugee law experience.

Still at Application Received. I'm not going to panic yet though as I imagine they are still doing elibility review.


Got e-mail about interview.

For everyone who didn't get it yet, don't lose hope! It didn't say anything about all the e-mails going out at once and it's possible they're still coming :).

Does anybody else's status still say "application received by DOJ" and never even said "application referred to components"?
