How to Apply
Thank you for your
interest in employment at the Legislative Analyst’s Office. The LAO accepts and
evaluates applications throughout the year, and maintains a list of interested
and qualified individuals to hire from when vacancies occur.
LAO also recruits nationally on various campuses during the winter and spring.
During the campus recruiting process, the LAO typically is recruiting to fill
the general fiscal and policy analyst position as opposed to specific
assignments. This is because we do not know which assignments will be vacant
when new hires report for work the following summer and fall.
should submit a cover letter, resume, and three references (name, relationship,
and phone numbers only).
With the exception of during the fall campus recruitment season, when a
response might be delayed, the LAO will respond to applicants within three
weeks of receiving application materials. Applicants will be notified
whether or not we wish to schedule a first round interview. Some
candidates will be selected for second round interviews, which
will take place in Sacramento at our expense. Applicants who remain under
consideration towards the end of the selection process may be asked to submit
school transcripts and a short writing sample.
