Via Advice Goddess Amy Alkon:

At the US Department of Justice…

Those with “targeted disabilities” may be hired through a “non-competitive” appointment. That means they don’t have to endure the regular civil service competition among applicants, but can be plucked from the stack of resumes and hired immediately instead.

According to the documents, those with these “targeted disabilities” may be hired “before the position is advertised” and even “before the position’s closing date.” Moreover, lawyers with psychiatric disabilities and “severe intellectual” disabilities receive a waiver from the requirement that a new DOJ employee have practiced law for one year before being hired.

I’m more pleased that the DOJ is hiring people with “severe intellectual” disabilities than that the DOJ is hiring people with psychiatric disabilities; also more surprised.
