Hey Jack! Is there an OCI angle to your question? If so let me know. If not I’ll email you separately so we can keep this OCI focused.February 21, 2017 at 5:42 pm #502
My apologies, Daniel. I was under the mistaken impression that this was open to any career-related questions. I have edited my question. Thanks.February 21, 2017 at 5:43 pm #503chase_lalouetteMember
Good evening Daniel,
Where should I go for my OCI? is there a check-in process?February 21, 2017 at 5:45 pm #504
Chase, you should check in with me or Daniel in the CDO 5-10 minutes before each interview.February 21, 2017 at 5:45 pm #505
Hi Chase! In addition to what Angela said, we will send you back to your interview room when it is time.
**Obviously Angela and I are not in the same location!

You may have seen this story wherein Rutgers students were turned away from career fair for wearing light grey or blue suits.

How typical is it for employers to discuss the “nuts and bolts” of the summer associate positions in these interviews? For example, will they discuss how many associates they will be hiring, what the pay will be, work schedule, etc. What, if any of this, should we inquire about?February 21, 2017 at 5:51 pm #510
You might consider bringing a copy of your transcript and writing sample, but it is appropriate to follow up with copies if an employer requests those documents. I would bring the “padfolio” you received when admitted to Baylor Law to write notes as needed. You can leave phones, purses, bags, etc. in the CDO.February 21, 2017 at 5:51 pm #511
First is to recognize that if they selected you for an interview, they see something there that makes them think you can do the work. In other words, you’ve passed an initial test! Interviews are generally about interaction, communication and fit, so keep your focus on that and less about your academics.February 21, 2017 at 5:53 pm #512
Jack, it is safest to wear a dark suit. Navy or charcoal is appropriate. Women can wear a black suit. Black suits for men are safest for a formal event. No bold or red ties. See the “This Week in the CDO” email we sent this morning. It included some tips on dressing for your interview.February 21, 2017 at 5:55 pm #513
This might surprise you, but I would try not to focus on any of that! You have 20 or 30 precious minutes to communicate to the employer that you are prepared, interested and a great fit with the employer. Time spent on anything else is not in furtherance of that goal. So do what you can to save all of those questions for after the interview (i.e. by email), if at all.
