Back in September, we mentioned that interviewees for the DOJ Honors Program were learning of their good fortune. Now the process has proceeded one step further — for some lucky individuals, to completion.
We heard from one offer recipient from the Civil Division, but we suspect this person is not alone. According to the Key Dates section of the Honors Program website, job offers are being extended from November 6 through mid-December 2009. In mid-December, candidates not selected as finalists will be notified.
More info about the process, plus the chance to comment, after the jump.
If you haven’t heard back about an offer yet, don’t despair. From the Honors Program FAQ:
10. When are offers made?
There is no set time, but we anticipate that most components will make first-round offers about 10 days after the end of formal interviews. The majority of the offers will be made from late October through December, but the process could extend into January and beyond.
11. Will I be notified if, after interviewing, I will not receive an offer?
The Department will notify all candidates who interviewed but were not selected to receive an offer, but the timing of this notice varies. Components make decentralized hiring decisions and frequently issue offers sequentially based on their internal ranking of candidates and the number of positions available. The component may issue a certain number of offers, then, depending on acceptances, may issue a second round, and occasionally a third round of offers. OARM issues final notice of non-selection only after a component reports that it has met its hiring requirements. All notifications are issued electronically.
To those of you who have secured places on the federal government lifeboat, congratulations. To those of you still waiting to hear, good luck.
Feel free to trade notes about which components have started making offers, in the comments.
