I just got an email from the Miami regional office for an interview next week. I'm pretty sure I put the Southern region as my 1st choice. They didn't indicate if the interview would be by phone or in person. Waiting to hear back.


Please let me know what you find out. I got an email as well.


They told me phone, video conference, or in person would be acceptable.

Has anyone heard from DOL?

I sent them an updated application (originally applied back in July) on the last day the application period was open and they never replied to confirm they received it :|

I've heard nothing so far from DOL, but that just could be a lack of interest in me on their part.

To whomever said postal service opens today, where do you see that? I don't see anything online anywhere.

And no one has had second round interview notices for DHS yet? I'm guessing I'm a ding since they said at the screener that final interviews would be early ish November, but maybe not?

USPS posted on my school's simplicity.

Please visit www.usps.com/careers on or after October 29, 2015 to apply. The Postal Service no longer accepts applications that are submitted by mail. When applying for an advertised vacancy, all applicants are required to apply through our eCareer system located on our website.

A cover letter, writing sample, resume, and recent transcript are required.

It's my understanding that you get a call for an interview as soon as a couple of weeks after applying. If it's been more than that... Just stop thinking about it.

Transportation. Treasury is usually referred to as Treasury.

Anyone hear back from CFPB Legal- L&P after phone screener?

Nope, but heard through the grapevine that the pool of candidates is exceptional, and I believe they're only taking one honors attorney, so I think odds are low, at least for me.

Thank you so much for taking this time out of your schedule to help us. Any idea when decisions will be made?

CFPB callbacks for Legal, Enforcement and Supervision. I think they are starting to get things scheduled for the next couple of weeks.

Did any HUD interviewee ask how many people they are interviewing?
Or, alternatively, has there historically been a consistent ratio between spots and interviewees?

The HUD people I interviewed with said that they'd actually had a lower number of applications this year than in previous years, but no word on how many people were being interviewed or how many people would be accepted.

Anyone that interviewed with HUD, can you share whether the questions were difficult? Did they focus on past experience or general interview questions?
