Opportunities for Support Staff
The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California accepts applications for employment in non-attorney positions as posted by specific job vacancy announcements or public notices. The most common non-attorney positions are Legal Assistants, Paralegal Specialists, and other Support Positions. Other administrative and technical positions, such as Investigator, Auditor and Analyst occasionally become available. For qualifying college students, there are regularly recurring part-time and full-time vacancies which are filled on a temporary basis with flexible schedules.
Applicant supply files are not maintained for support positions. Applications will only be accepted during the period of the time listed in the posted vacancy announcement. Support staff vacancy announcements will also be posted at the following website: www.usajobs.opm.gov .
Employment for all positions is contingent upon the satisfactory completion of a background investigation by the Department of Justice. This is a thorough investigation that includes checks with present and former employers, military records and credit bureaus. The investigation also includes verifications of tax filings and attendance at institutions of higher learning. Those who are selected are subject to drug testing by urinalysis. United States citizenship is required.
EXCEPT WHERE OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY LAW, THERE IS NO DISCRIMINATION BECAUSE OF COLOR, RACE, RELIGION, NATIONAL ORIGIN, POLITICS, MARITAL STATUS, DISABILITY, AGE, SEX, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, MEMBERSHIP OR NONMEMBERSHIP IN AN EMPLOYEE ORGANIZATION, OR ON THE BASIS OF PERSONAL FAVORITISM.
Qualification requirements vary for support positions and will be specified in each vacancy announcement.
