During the fall and spring, employers from around the region conduct interviews on
campus for summer associate and post-graduation positions. During the fall, the on-campus
interviews (OCI) start in early September and ends in mid-November. Spring OCI starts
in early February and ends in mid-April.
Preparing for OCI
The CSO offers two programs to help prepare you for Fall 2014 OCI: resume reviews
and mock interviews.
To have your resume reviewed before you apply for OCI, please email it to Dean Winsett
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or Callie Caldwell (email@example.com) no later than August 28th, 2014.
Before OCI, local attorneys will be on campus to conduct mock interviews. Mock interviews
are a great opportunity to practice your interview skills and to receive feedback
to improve your performance. Interview sessions typically last 30 minutes. To sign
up for mock interviews, please follow these instructions.
Document Library Resources
In addition to resume reviews and mock interviews, you can prepare for OCI by checking
out our Resume Guide, Cover Letter Guide, and Interview Preparation Handout located
in Symplicity's document library.
The CSO and all students must adhere to the National Association for Law Placement
(NALP) Principles and Standards for employers, law students, and law schools. The
policy is found in its entirety at on the NALP Student Professionalism website.
You are required to honor all interview appointments unless you have accepted another
position by the date of the interview. Emergencies are the only exceptions and must
be cleared with the Assistant Dean for Career Services.
If you fail to appear for an interview, you must provide a written letter of apology
to the employer within 24 hours of the scheduled interview. In the letter, be sure
to copy to the Assistant Dean for Career Services. The Assistant Dean has the authority
to suspend your access to OCI, Symplicity, or other CSO resources for exhibiting unprofessional
