ALJ Application

In 2013, Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) positions became even more competitive when the federal government changed its application requirements. Any ALJ announcement can be tricky to navigate, as it is one of the most complicated applications to develop.

But ALJ positions will force you to pay extra attention to instructions to make sure your application isn’t weeded out because of a technicality. What job seekers might not realize with the USAJOBS system is that it can stop you mid-application if your skills don’t match a vacancy announcement.

Person Writing on ResumeHow Administrative Law Judge Jobs Vacancy Announcements Are Different

ALJs will preside over formal hearings, issue subpoenas, review briefs, and rule on motions for multiple agencies throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. To apply for ALJ jobs, applicants will need a minimum of seven years of experience as an Attorney. Job seekers will also need a license to practice laws in a U.S. state or one of the U.S. territories. In addition, all applicants for ALJ jobs will need to pass a U.S. Office of Personnel Management evaluation.

Experience with cases that do not have a formal hearing process will not be considered qualifying experience for ALJ jobs in the application process. Those positions include Claims Reviewer, Court Clerk, Insurance Adjuster, Law Professor, or State Unemployment Insurance Supervisor.
