On Campus Interview (OCI) Fall 2018

NSU Law students are invited to participate in our Fall 2018 On-Campus Interview Program (OCI), held from August 27 – November 9, 2018. OCI allows students to apply to government, public interest and law firm employers for summer associate, law clerk and permanent employment. Employers may also choose to participate in our Resume Collection Program. This program allows employers to receive resumes and application materials from students. The employers then have the opportunity to contact interested students directly to schedule interviews.
Bidding for the program begins in Symplicity on July 12. To prepare, students should review the employer list and schedule an appointment with a career advisor to have their resume reviewed and to discuss their bid list.
