Jan. 10, 2019 — First-year University of Houston Law Center students networked with prominent law firms and state agencies during the “Meet the OCI Employers” annual reception recently held by the Career Development Office.
Participating organizations will all take part in the On Campus Interview Program later this year. The 1L students discussed opportunities for summer clerkship positions with 36 different employers.
“The “Meet the OCI Employers” event, is a table-talk style networking event, where the Career Development Office invites employers who participate in our On-Campus Interview Program to come to campus and network with our talented 1L students,” said Kourtney James Perry, director of Employer Relations and Development in the Career Development Office. “1L students attend this event to learn about the employers, their practices, and their recruiting cycles while employers get a first look at rising talent.”
Meeting these employers will help students navigate the Career Development Office’s upcoming spring recruiting events. Future events include Session III of the On-Campus Interview program on Jan. 18 where midsize and large firms interview 1L students for summer positions. The second event, the Government & Public Interest Table Talk on Feb. 8, provides government agencies and public interest organizations the opportunity to meet informally with students, collect resumes for upcoming positions, and introduce their organization to a large number of potential candidates.
