FALL RECRUITMENT WEEK - LEARNING THE PROCESS There will be three informative sessions on Fall Recruitment the week of April 6. All students interested in participating in Fall Recruitment must attend these sessions.

What is Fall Recruitment? Fall Recruitment is an interview program that encompasses many components. Most of the employers that participate in the WCL Fall Recruitment program are large (50+ attorney) firms and governmental agencies located in the D.C. metropolitan area and other major cities. Interviews with these employers are conducted on-campus, at the employer's local office, in two off-campus regional interview programs (located in Boston, MA and New York, NY) and with two consortia (located in Santa Monica, CA and Atlanta, GA). It is important to remember that employers who hire through the Fall Recruitment process represent merely one category of employer--large firms and organizations that tend to impose rather strict hiring criteria--and that these employers are not the only option for students seeking meaningful and fulfilling summer and post-graduate employment.

Employers may participate in Fall Recruitment in different ways. They may receive resumes of students through OCS, or request that students contact them directly. However, a successful recruiting season largely depends on your personal efforts. It is imperative that you research the employment opportunities prior to pursing them to ensure that they match your specific career goals. Your personal networks are also invaluable tools that should be used to identify appropriate positions.

Tuesday, April 6 - Introduction to eCampus Recruiter: Students interested in accessing the new job database for summer associate, post-graduate, and academic year positions, participating in the Fall and Spring Recruitment Programs, and being notified of all OCS events must attend this training session on our new recruiting software, eCampus Recruiter. Students are strongly encouraged to bring their laptops to this session in order to create their new profile and password. Two sessions will be conducted in Room 603 from 11:30 am - 12:30 PM and 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM.

Wednesday, April 7- Off-Campus Regional Interview Programs: Interested in obtaining a job in New York? What about Boston? California? Maybe Atlanta? This session will explain the various regional interview programs and consortia at WCL, and how you can participate. This session will be in the Student Lounge on the sixth floor from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM.
