Employment is also contingent upon the completion and satisfactory adjudication of a background investigation. This is a thorough investigation which 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. Only U.S. citizens are eligible for employment with the U.S. Attorney's Office.
