Important Planning for August 2008

Topic: On-Campus Interviewing in Fall semester 2008.

The firms are asking us to start on-campus-interviewing early this coming fall semester.  To be specific, Stites & Harbison is our first OCI and they are coming on Friday, September 5th.  THEREFORE, resumes and other items they request will need to be turned into career services no later than Tuesday, August 19th. 

What does that mean for you? The 19th is only the second day of school; so needless to say, people will have to have updated their resumes while still on summer vacation.

Your Career Services staff are here throughout the summer.  Monday through Friday from 9:00 - 4:30.  We recommend that you call for an appointment because, with such a small staff and vacations and everything, it is unlikely but possible that the office will occasionally be unmanned.

Contact Jerie at 852-6096 or Debra at 852-6368.

Journal of Law and Education extends deadline to April 25

The Journal of Law and Education has extended the deadline for completed application to April 25. Applications for the 2008-2009 Journal of Law and Education are available now in the Student Mailroom. Being a member of the JLE offers an opportunity to become published in a well-known journal. Further, you can expand your network while gaining valuable writing experience, impressive resume credentials, and writing samples for prospective employers.

The JLE operates under the belief that grades are not as important as excellent writing skills, dependability and strong interest, so any student who plans on attending classes through Spring 2009 is encouraged to apply. We are accepting over 30 candidates, so our acceptance rate is very high. Moreover, you can be a member of both journals at Brandeis.

The application packet simply contains a personal information sheet and a small sample case for which you will write an abstract. Applications are due on Friday, April 25. If you have any questions, contact Kevin J. Graves at kjgrav02@louisville.edu. Thank you and good luck.

Grads: Check and Double-check

1.  By the end of the week, we will put all the unclaimed wallet-sized photos in your mailboxes. 

2.  The draft composite is now back at the printers.  Watch the door of office #182 for the hanging of the final draft -- to  make sure the changes were properly made.  (We may have it as early as this weekend, but no promises.)

3.  Be sure to get your ERSS (those employment yellow sheets) into Career Services.  AND, if you have information to add to your sheet, please come by and update us.
