Still waiting to hear back. I was told they would take about 3 weeks to make a decision.

It sounds like the process is pretty idiosyncratic. So there might still be hope.

Thanks for the vote of confidence! I did have a pretty good interview with the GC, so I am surprised I still have not heard back.

Interested as well. Heard earlier in the thread it was 9-6-ish for lit but didn't get a sense from my interviewers.

Does anyone know whether the PA has finished recruiting? Is it too late to submit an application?

It sounds like a pretty great gig if it's 40-50 hours a week, interesting work and fairly good pay. Again, I am assuming starting pay of ~$82k from the posted salary information.


What do you mean by "bond folks"? Is that what the corporate attorneys there specialize in? Having trouble figuring out more about their corporate practice online. Thanks.


Yes, I am pretty sure that's what the poster meant -- bond securities offerings (i.e., debt) by the Authority to raise funds.
