Your First Day

Welcome!  By now you have received and accepted a job offer at the Civil Division, U.S. Department of Justice.  We want you to hit the ground running and make your first day as smooth as possible.

On your first day, you will report to the Civil Division’s Human Resources Office at 1100 L St NW, Washington, DC 20005.  When you arrive, the security guards will call the Human Resources Office and a staff member will escort you to orientation.  You will spend most of your first morning at 1100 L St.  During this time, you will:

  • Finish completing and turn in all necessary forms. Click on the Next Page button at the bottom of the page to view the forms.  
    • Make sure you bring two forms of government issued identification (e.g. driver’s license, social security card) or a US passport.  For a complete list of acceptable forms of ID, click here.
  • Take the Oath of Office
  • Attend DOJ JCON Orientation (an introduction to the DOJ’s computer system)

After orientation, you will go to the RFK Main Justice Building (950 Pennsylvania Ave NW) to receive your Identification Badge and take a picture for your Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card.  You will need the PIV Card to access DOJ Buildings and the DOJ computer network.  After you get your badge, you will report to your office.  The Civil Division is spread across several buildings in Washington, DC (with small field offices in New York and San Francisco).
