On-Campus Interviews, or OCI, generally refers to the time period in early fall when employers come to law school campuses to interview students for law clerk and attorney positions. Although Mitchell Hamline welcomes employers to campus for recruiting purposes throughout the year, each year we typically host 30-40 employers on campus during OCI.
Most employers participating in OCI are seeking students who will graduate in 2021 (for law clerk or summer associate positions), or in 2020 (for post-grad attorney positions). You can review employers’ individual eligibility criteria for specific available positions on Symplicity by clicking on OCI on the left-hand side.
OCI is a great opportunity for students interested in working in private practice, government, or business settings, or for students who are still exploring potential career paths. While OCI is the only way that certain employers hire, it is not the only way to secure employment. Most employers do not use Fall OCI to hire, because their hiring patterns do not fit within a fall-only hiring season.
NEXT STEPS: Learn more about OCI on the Office of Career & Professional Development’s OCI Page and watch the recording of the 3/15/19 OCI Info Session. Update your class year on Symplicity to reflect your class year as of August 2019. Research employers registered for OCI on Symplicity to determine which are of interest to you.
