DC AUSA office

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Apr 20, 2017 7:39 pm

Does anyone know if this office is hiring? Also, can anyone tell me a little bit about the interview process in the office, e.g., how interviews are structured, what type of questions they ask, things to avoid saying, etc.

I know of someone who has an interview coming up with them so I assume they're hiring. From what she tells me, the process is panel interviews in the morning, break for lunch, then you come back and they give you facts of a case and half an hour to prepare before giving a mock opening statement.

Is this the standard for most AUSA offices or just the DC one?

I think just DC. The interviews I've had with AUSA offices only involved panel interviews.

What kind of questions were asked at your panel interview?

Ditto. I did get hypos from one office, but they sent them ahead of time, and I've never had to do a mock trial anything.

Questions were pretty predictable: why do you want to be a prosecutor? Why a federal prosecutor? Why this office? Tell us about your trial experience (or whatever experience you have, but preferably trial). Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Other questions I got were specific to having prosecutorial experience: how do you prepare for sentencing? How do you work with agents? What do you like most about the job/trial? what do struggle with most? How do you deal with defense counsel?
