Assisting the Student Body as a Whole While Supporting the Needs of Each Individual.
The Office of Career Services provides opportunities throughout the year to assist you in the job search process. These include individual counseling, resume review, and on-campus interviews.
MC Law students are encouraged to utilize one of the templates that have been created explicitly for our students.
MC Law is pleased to offer an in-house peer resume reviewer. Students are encouraged to use this service as their first stop for resume assistance. For the 2023 – 2024 academic year, please contact Meagan Wahl (Class of 2024) at email@example.com.
MC Law students are also encouraged to utilize the MC Writing Center for proofreading. Appointments are available in-person and remotely.
MC Law students may email a Word Document to firstname.lastname@example.org for review. The file should be saved as NameSemesterYear (ERobbFall2023). Students are requested and encouraged to first visit with their Peer Reviewer and/or the Writing Center first.
On Campus Interviews (OCIs) are just one tool MC Law uses to facilitate a connection between students and potential employers.
OCIs for 1L students take place at the beginning of the Spring Semester (late January/early February) and are typically for positions for the summer following the 1L year. Students should be prepared to submit resumes and other application materials at the beginning of the Spring Semester
OCIs for 2L students take place at the start of the Fall Semester. Students should be prepared to submit resumes and other application materials prior to the start of Fall Semester.
Symplicity - What to Expect
MC Law uses the Symplicity platform for job postings and On Campus Interview Scheduling. During the fall semester, all 1L students are registered with Symplicity. All students are encouraged to utilize their Symplicity accounts for important information concerning employment opportunities which range from summer clerkships, part-time positions during the school year, and full-time post-graduation positions.
Students are encouraged to attend the many programming events various organizations offer throughout the semester. Many practicing attorneys, judges, and others from the legal community are on campus frequently. This exposure provides students with information on all different areas of law which can help direct students to a particular practice area.
Career Services hosts events tailored to the current needs of students. These are typically towards the mid-point of the Fall Semester and the beginning of the Spring Semester. Topics included are OCIs, resumes, cover letters, interviewing, and judicial internships.
