Hello. I’ve recently scheduled an interview for a position as an Assistant US Attorney. I am trying to 1) prep for interview and 2) determine if this would be a good move. I am currently staff counsel for an insurance company and the job is pretty cush. If anyone has any tips or feedback, I would greatly appreciate it.

Your current job sounds great. If you aren’t sure about the move to government, I’m happy to take it off your hands, lol.


Do you want to litigate? What's so cush about your job?

Yes, I do. At my current job - the pay is good and the caseload manageable (I leave at 5:00 most days). No billables. Good benefits.


Why did you apply if you are happy? The pay is not great and the benefits are not as cheap or extensive as I would have liked. In any event, no harm in chatting with them and seeing what kind of cases you would handle. If you are interviewing for civil, it is pretty laid back. For criminal you may need to give an opening statement that is recorded or answer ethics hypos.

How do your interview go?

Bad attitude in emails and LinkedIn messages - is this a red flag?

I’m in change/transformation/strategy so no technical skills. I enjoy helping people be their best (coaching / program management / talent optimization type work).

My husband does not have a degree but immense sales experience. He has been in sales in the food and beverage industry for about 10 years now and wants to get into tech. I am in tech and have a degree so unsure if he needs a degree to get a sales role? So many places are quick to turn away great candidates because of schooling even if their experience surely qualifies them. Anyone have experience or know if their company requires a BA for sales roles?


Thoughts on this?
