I know they pushed back the closing date, but it should be about time for some movement.

ICE trial attorneys are indeed in court every day, with massive case loads. They learn very quickly, and many of them are excellent attorneys. I've gone up against many of them in EOIR courts.

There was a listing for Trial Attorney positions for numerous locations. The listing closed on 9/8. Supposedly going to be a mass hiring.

Was the email the ratings or referral notification? I applied for the last cycle of hiring and was referred, but not interviewed or hired. They sent out an email a couple weeks ago stating that those previously referred would be considered for this cycle without having to reapply. I reapplied anyway, but have not received any updates. Last time, it took two months after the application closing to receive the notice of results.

It's not a referral it just says I am eligible for gs12-13 based upon what I put down in the questionnaire

There's an update, they did refer me for GS12 but not GS13. I'm still not even going to get an interview, but they have started doing the referrals for this ICE General attorney position.

To be even more specific, this was an ICE General Attorney Labor Law position. I didn't even take labor law in law school, so I have no chance. This was not likely the job the OP was referring to.

Ice attorney job is pretty sweet gig. Goes to go gs 14 automatically. And alternative work schedules are available. Quite a few ice attorneys work 4-10 schedules.

You typically spend 2-3 days a week in court. As long as your court dates are covered no one hassles you.

I must have applied for a different position, I think the one I applied for was a general attorney. I wouldn't have ever applied for something that stated there'd be courtroom action. The referral was based upon my own self assessment, according to the email I got. That's a bit odd.

Yeah, it would be to whomever gets it. Won't be me. I just got rejected for some county landlord tenant dispute investigator job. I can't even get non lawyer jobs.

To give you some hope. Not ICE, but take this for what it's worth. I applied for a position in Albuquerque for SSA back in March. They did not refer me. I was not picked up. I get a call in mid-July I think asking if I am still interested in a position with the SSA in Albuquerque. I see people talking on here that they are interviewing for that office, and I am freaking excited. I hear crickets, so I say ***k it and move on to the Richmond opening. I just get rejected for that opening, and I heard from Downward on here that Albuquerque is still interviewing. I am a bit annoyed because hell, I'll take Albuquerque, and that afternoon I get a call asking if I will interview on Wednesday. So long story short, you never know with the good people of the Federal Government.

Good luck. I hope you guys get picked up.

Sorry the previous post was a bit incoherent.

My timeline was March-Applied to SSA in NM and was told my candidacy was dead

July-Was called and asked if I was still interested, and I didn't hear squat when people on here were saying they were conducting interviews. I thought my candidacy died a second death.

Yesterday-I was called to set-up an interview for the office.

How that translates to ICE is you never know what to expect with the good people of the Federal Government when it comes to hiring.

I'm not the one you should be asking, but like any other job before, even if I get referred, I never hear anything, so this is the same.

Trump's budget proposal calls for 1k new ice attorneys, 100+ federal immigration judges, and 10k+ border patrol agents. Unfortunately this deal is being tied up by Democrats who call this racist.

I just got that one as well. No idea what it actually means. Hopefully it isn't like the "referred" emails that go out after they've already actually decided to hire. Hopefully we hear some positive news soon!

Read it closely, does it say you are eligible for that grade due to your self assessment?

Yea everyones says that. It's just the first cut- basically saying that everything you were required to include/have on your resume was present.
