The OCS Resume Review Program is now open. If you are participating in EIP and would like to have your resume reviewed by OCS, the deadline for submitting your resume to our office is Friday, June 22. This program is for EIP resumes only (not clerkship resumes). Follow the directions detailed in the link above to participate.
Employers participating in this year’s EIP will soon be viewable in CSM. Beginning on Thursday, May 31 at 12 noon EST, you will be able to check out who’s coming to EIP and research employers in the Employer Directory in CSM. Before you have access to this information, you will need to have completed the 2018 Summer Employment Survey in CSM, so make sure you get that done soon.
To the extent you have any choices among projects in your summer job, try to seek out writing projects. These projects will help develop your writing skills and be a helpful source of writing samples for future job searches, including for judicial clerkships. Before you leave the job, ask for permission to take redacted versions with you. If your position this summer does not include any opportunity for showcasing your writing abilities, don’t worry. You can find other opportunities, including through HLS classes, clinics, journals, research assistance work for professors, and independent writing for course credit.
Each spring, OCS publishes a “Who Works Where” list detailing where rising 2Ls and 3Ls will be employed for the upcoming summer. Students use this information to learn from other students about their experiences at various organizations and to connect with classmates who will work in the same city. If you have not already please be sure to complete the Summer Employment Survey in CSM, which will take less than a minute of your time. If you prefer to not have your 2017 summer job listed in the “Who Works Where” list, which is available only to HLS students, please email OCS by Friday, April 21. Please contact OCS with any questions.
