"DOJ Law Jobs" to be Available on iTunes and the Play Store

The U.S. Department of Justice unveiled a new mobile app, called DOJ Law Jobs, which will provide attorneys and law students with a quick and easy way to find an attorney position or law student internship with the department.  DOJ Law Jobs is available for free now on iTunes for Apple iPhone, and additional versions for iPad and Android devices will be available in the next few weeks.  The mobile app was developed by the Office of Attorney Recruitment and Management and Office of the Chief Information Officer.  Users of the app will be able to create personalized job searches based on practice area, geographic preference, and hiring organization.

DOJ Law Jobs includes the following key features: provides instructions on how to apply to attorney jobs and legal internships; saves search criteria for quick access to future opportunities; allows users to save, share, and email their favorite jobs; and provides access to hundreds of attorney jobs and legal internships at the U.S. Department of Justice.  The DOJ Law Jobs logo was developed in-house, following a DOJ-wide request for ideas.

“The new app directly aligns with President Obama’s digital government strategy aimed at delivering better digital services to the American people,” said Director Jamila Frone of the Office of Attorney Recruitment and Management.  “We are very excited about this app as it allows an increasingly mobile workforce to quickly and affordably access legal employment opportunities with the department and conduct personalized searches at the touch of a button.”

“Mobility is the future,” said DOJ Chief Information Officer Joseph Klimavicz. “The Department of Justice is committed to changing the way citizens interact with government information.  We are tailoring our mobile strategy to align with the needs of American citizens.”

The Department of Justice is the world’s largest law office, employing more than 10,000 attorneys nationwide.  The Office of Attorney Recruitment and Management oversees the department’s outreach and recruitment efforts for law students and attorneys with the goal of attracting a highly-qualified and diverse talent pool.  For more information, please visit www.justice.gov/legal-careers.
