Law Firm and Business Career Fair - Student Information
December 04, 2018
10:00 am – 12:00 pm: Employer Table-Talk
From 10:00 to noon, employers are available to talk with students and alumni who visit their table. This is a great opportunity for students and alumni to learn more about what different organizations do, to inquire about a particular area of law, to get a feel for different office cultures, and perhaps to impress someone enough to secure an interview. Table Talk conversations are not formal, scheduled interviews, but they provide an opportunity for organizations to gain exposure and for employers to meet and connect with students and alumni based on shared interests.
Employers who are conducting interviews in the afternoon but do not have a full schedule may offer interview slots to students they meet through Table Talk.
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm: On-Campus Interviews
During the afternoon, employers interview to fill law clerk, intern, legal extern, or attorney positions. Private interview spaces will be provided for pre-scheduled interviews. Interview space for follow up conversations from the Table Talk will be provided, subject to availability.
Employers that are unable to attend the fair in person may participate in a Resume Collect. These employers will request that candidates send them their resume (and possibly additional materials, if specifically requested). If an employer would like to interview any candidate who submitted materials, they will directly contact the candidate and schedule an interview at a time and location outside of the career fair.
Students interested in participating in the Career Fair must apply for posted positions by February 19, 2019.

Interview FAQs for students and alumni:
Who can attend or interview?
Students and Alumni from Lewis & Clark Law School are encouraged to attend and apply for pre-scheduled interviews. Sorry, no other groups or individuals are permitted to participate.
How do I apply?
- Table Talk: Register on Career Connect. There is no charge to attend this event.
- One-on-One Interviews: You may submit applications to the employers who will interview at the Fair through the Career Connect On Campus Interview (OCI) Round. There is no need to register to attend the Table Talk if you only want to apply for positions.
What is the deadline to apply for interviews?
In order to be considered for pre-scheduled interviews, application materials must be submitted through Career Connect by Tuesday, February 19, 2019 @ NOON.
How will I know if I have been selected?
Candidates will be notified by Thursday, March 7, 2019, regarding whether they have been selected for an interview. Some employers will select candidates from the Table Talk earlier in the day to receive interviews should space become available.
What happens if I get an interview?
Students must check in at Gantenbein at least ten minutes prior to their first interview.
Can I see a list of employers who will be there?

Can Career Services provide assistance with my materials before I submit them to a potential employer?
Of course! If you are a Lewis & Clark student, you have an assigned advisor who is available to assist you with job application materials and career strategy. One caveat: avoid waiting to the last minute, because sometimes your advisor has other students who need help, too, or appointments that could cause a time crunch in advance of the deadline.
