Session II Offers New Opportunities

Many of you get to this time of year and start to feel the concluding realities of On-Campus Interviews setting in. Perhaps you were able to secure a first-half clerkship but not a second. Or per\par ]]>\par
Seeking:      Employer Type:      Location:\par 2Ls – 18        Law Firm – 13        Dallas\par 3Ls – 18        Gov't – 8                Austin, Houston – 3\par Alumni – 17    Other – 5              Other – 12\par \par Other characteristics you’ll find with these employers are less restrictive hiring criteria and more flexibility regarding timing of the clerkship experience (i.e. first half v. second half). That is particularly important for those of you who perhaps already have one half of your summer nailed down, but are still looking for something for the other half.\par \par Something else I’d point out stems from the statistics provided above. The number of employers seeking both 2Ls and 3Ls (and for that matter alumni) is quite high. So while it’s true that many of these employers won’t hire in cycles the way a big law firm might, the fact they are also interviewing for 3Ls/alumni demonstrate their willingness to hire an attorney right out of school. And that is in many ways just as good. Do a great job as a 2L clerk, and maybe they’ll just hire you and not come back next year looking for one of your classmates as a 3L. \par \par Don’t let this opportunity pass you by. If you’re still looking for a 2L clerkship (either half) or full-time position, log on to Symplicity today and begin researching these employers. If you failed to register for OCI back in the spring, there is still an opportunity for you to participate. Come by our office ASAP to discuss the terms of late-registration.\par \par Bonus tip from Session I employer feedback (and my own observations): most of you have a compelling story to tell which isn’t immediately obvious from your resume/cover letter. That story needs to be told in the interview or you sound just like everyone else. I strongly encourage you to make an appointment to do a mock interview with me prior to Session II. I can help you identify those qualities and experiences and help you weave them in to your interview.\par \par Connect with Daniel at Daniel_Hare@Baylor.edu and/or @BaylorLawDaniel on Twitter.\par \par Job of the Week: Each week I highlight a job in Symplicity you might be interested in but may have missed. This week's job is: Associate Attorney at The Rad Law Firm in Dallas(3L, alumni) Log in to Symplicity to view this job and apply. \par ]]>\par
