SUMMER ASSOCIATES

LOOKING FOR A SUMMER ASSOCIATE POSITION ??????

Here’s some simple advice:

  1. Do not rely on St. John’s OCS.

? Under no circumstances should you ONLY partake in the OCS run On-Campus Interview (OCI) program, thinking you’ll certainly land a summer associate position.  Wrong.  You need to send your resumes and applications to every possible reasonably-sized firm within commuting range.

  1. Despite recommendations from the pundits to “research firms to see which ones are a fit for you” forget this advice: Apply to every firm attending OCI.

Bottomline: Disregarding the above two simple rules will result in no summer associate position for 96% of you, and no job offer for post-graduation, leading to an exceedingly stressful third year (or fourth year for evening students) at school.
