Please clarify, is this a screener or callback via phone?

Nope. My friend at CFPB says that they don't usually select candidates for screeners until October.

Like a couple posters on the previous page, I received a message telling me to contact a couple attorneys at the OCC to talk about their work, etc. Not sure if that qualifies as a screener or what exactly they're looking for with that.

Incidentally, does anyone have any thoughts on the work at the OCC compared to other government agencies like the DOJ? Mainly interested in litigation opportunities.

Just found out this isn't a screener--it's a CB.

Invited for a second round interview with the DOT yesterday.

My info: Graduated cum laude from a T30 in May, secondary journal/trial ad, lots of public interest work in my background and currently doing a fellowship with a fed agency. Applied for DOT Honors Program through my schools job bank back in August. Received an e-mail about 3 weeks later to schedule a phone interview. Had a one hour phone interview a week ago. Received an e-mail yesterday inviting me for a second round interview.

Didn't apply to DOL or USPS.

No movement yet from USACE.

It's worth noting that neither DOL nor USACE deadline has passed, and they usually do not start scheduling interviews until after the close date.
