For those employers that are unable to participate in one of the OCI rounds, our office offers a resume collection option. We collect the resumes of interested students and forward them to the employers. After reviewing the materials and selecting candidates to interview, these employers invite our students to interview in their offices.
Each fall, we invite employers to interview our students for intern / externships, summer, and permanent positions. These employers include larger law firms, local judges, agencies, and public interest organizations. Virtual interviews take place in early August, with some employers opting to come to campus to interview in late August or early September. Students apply for this program online utilizing CORE and should watch for email alerts advertising the program beginning in late spring / early summer.
Federal Judges in the Middle District of Pennsylvania participate in a mini-fall OCI program with student applications opening in late summer. This OCI round is highly competitive. Students apply for this program online utilizing CORE and should watch for email alerts advertising the program in mid-late summer.
Each winter we invite employers to participate in a second OCI program. These employers are a more diverse group than those we host in the fall, and may include: small to mid-sized law firms, local courts, and military JAG offices that prefer to recruit closer in time to when they actually need an attorney or law clerk to begin working. Most of these interviews take place on-campus early in the spring semester. Students apply for this program online utilizing CORE and should watch for email alerts advertising the program beginning in December.
