The 2016 ALJ Announcement is coming. Its precise contents are unknown. However, the qualifications for the position are known, as is OPM’s history of screening ALJ candidates. We also know how positions requiring similar skills are screened and evaluated, across civilian government. The 2nd Edition of the ALJ Writing Guide reviews the changes in ALJ hiring since 2009, including the innovative 2013 ALJ exam. It includes:

* Sample federal resumes for ALJ candidates

* Sample qualifying administrative law and litigation narratives

* Definitions for all 13 competencies tested in 2013

* OPM did not provide definitions in the 2013 announcement.

Central to federal hiring is the testing of behaviorally-based competencies, typically by evaluating examples of a candidate s past performance. The ALJ Guide, 2nd Edition, walks readers through the process of accomplishment writing, helping candidates become their own best advocates in developing narratives that address the factors OPM is most likely to assess. These narratives provide rich source material and an opportunity to practice for written and oral questions that may arise in the ALJ assessment.

The ALJ Writing Guide 2nd Edition is the best available resource for any attorney who would like to compete for a slot on the Administrative Law Judge register and ultimately be selected for an ALJ position.

Very poor value A complete waste of time. The little information in it is available for free elsewhere. Do not waste your money!

It seems like a simple read but the advice is spot on! I used this book and their services to prepare for the most recent ALJ exam. The exercises and information was spot on. I was exceptionally prepared for all components because I practiced each of the methods. There were no surprises and I don’t feel like I could have been any more prepared. Sure the cost is higher than a slurry romance novel but we are talking about a small investment in advancingredients your career. Do exactly what they say. It all seems elementary but it works. I worked for…

Useful It gives a clear outline of the process, and served as a reference guide for me on the various stages of the ALJ selection process. It’s pricey, and you might be able to find some of the information on the internet, but then again, you could miss something that could help. For me, the cost is secondary to the fact that even a slight advantage is an advantage.
