There are three opportunities every year to meet several students at a time and conduct short screening interviews. OCI takes place in August for large employers, October (recent grads), and in the spring for small to midsized firms.
Employers can use Symplicity.com, our web-based job posting network, to post positions and gather application materials online. All Seattle U Law students and alumni have access to this resource, and it provides employers with an efficient way to reach a large applicant pool.
If you are unable to interview on campus, CPD can collect and forward applications to you and arrange interviews.

This is a form of financial aid that allows a student to work part-time in their field of study and that reimburses an employer up to 65% of a student's wages. Please contact Student Financial Services.
At many large corporations and emerging companies, students have prepared training materials, drafted memoranda, and assisted with review of SEC filings and legal audits. Legal interns do not expect permanent employment, but they do hope to gain valuable experience.
CPD coordinates numerous career-related programs for students throughout the academic year. Topics include alternative careers, intellectual property practice, the role of in-house counsel, h2 interest work, government positions, and many more. We welcome outside speakers to add diversity and depth to these presentations. Employers and professional associations also host numerous information sessions and networking events on-campus.
