LOOKING FOR A SUMMER ASSOCIATE POSITION ??????
Here’s some simple advice:
- 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.
- 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.
