Government Recruitment Programs
The Georgetown Law Fall 2016 Government Recruitment & Interview Programs (GRIPs) provide federal, state, and local government employers the opportunity to recruit Georgetown Law students for paid summer internships and entry-level opportunities. The Government Recruitment Programs consist of the Government Interview Program (GIP), our on-campus interview program, our Government Resume Collect Program, and the Spotlight on Government Information Fair. The dates for our Fall 2016 recruitment programs are listed below.
Government Interview Program (GIP)
GIP is limited to government employers interviewing for paid summer and/or entry-level positions. We encourage employers to participate if they anticipate making offers during the fall semester. If you anticipate a longer timetable or you are interested in recruiting for volunteer summer or academic year positions, please contact Ruby Sheikh, Manager of Public Sector Recruitment, by e-mail or at (202) 662-9314.
The GIP 2016 will take place on Friday, September 16 and will be held at the Georgetown University Law Center.
If you are unable to interview on this date, please contact Ruby Sheikh to make alternative arrangements.
- GIP is administered electronically via Symplicity, an online recruitment management system through which participating employers may register, receive student resumes and cover letters, and select candidates to interview.
- The program is pre-screened: employers receive resumes and cover letters, and then select whom they wish to interview.
- The interviews are conducted ballroom style.
Government Resume Collect Program Overview:
If you are interested in recruiting our students for summer employment opportunities and cannot come to our on-campus interview programs, we invite you to participate in our Government Resume Collect Program. The Government Resume Collect Program is open to all employers offering paid or unpaid summer jobs. Please note, Georgetown Law students have guaranteed summer funding for unpaid public sector internships.
Spotlight on Government Information Fair
The Spotlight on Government Information Fair provides a forum for government employers and Georgetown Law students to engage in invaluable informational exchange about hiring programs and a range of federal, state and local government agencies. Spotlight 2016 will be held in late October. Registration for Spotlight will open in September 2016.
