All ALJ vacancy announcements require comprehensive responses to Application Record Narratives. There are six Accomplishment Records Narratives per application. In these narratives, you must address and prove your experience in:
- Decision Making
- Interpersonal Skills
- Oral Communications
- Judicial Analysis
- Judicial Management
Our in-house ALJ application writing experts will guide you through the process, helping you understand the ALJ program, editing and fine-tuning your narratives, and developing your ALJ resume.
You must score high on not only your ALJ federal resume, but also on your Accomplishment Record (AR) narratives.
Accomplishment Record (AR)
If you meet the experience and licensure requirements, OPM (Office of Personnel Management) will evaluate the AR portion of your Assessment Questionnaire.
- If your AR score is among the higher AR scores from all eligible applicants, you will be invited to participate in the Written Demonstration (WD) and Structured Interview (SI) (Parts B and C of the ALJ Examination). You will be notified regarding when and where to report for the WD and SI.
- If your AR score is not among the higher AR scores from all eligible applicants, you will be issued a Notice of Results (NOR) indicating that you will no longer be considered for this current ALJ vacancy announcement. You will not be allowed to participate in the WD and SI.
