The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is one of the newest Federal agencies, formally launched in July 2011. The central mission of the CFPB is to make markets for consumer financial products and services work for Americans—whether they are applying for a mortgage, choosing among credit cards, or using any number of other consumer financial products. The CFPB is currently recruiting for the next class of Louis D. Brandeis Honors Attorneys to begin working during the fall of 2015. Click above for more information about this Program.

If you have been accepted to a Georgetown Law journal, congratulations! Below please find an example of how to indicate this honor on your resume:
Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, DC
Juris Doctor, expected May 2016
Journal: Georgetown Immigration Law Journal
If you are participating in EIW, your resume has already been sent to employers. However, we advise you to bring an updated copy of your resume to your EIW interviews, reflecting your journal membership. This can be a great ice breaker during an interview (e.g. “Here is my updated resume, which reflects my acceptance onto the Georgetown Immigration Law Journal”).
In order to update your default resume on Symplicity for future job applications, please follow the steps below:
1. Log into Symplicity and delete your old resume from the Documents tab.
2. Upload the new resume into Documents with a new title (you can include today’s date in the title, for example).
3. Make your new resume the default resume. (If your new resume is the only resume you have, then it will automatically be the default and there won't be a "make default" button next to it.)

We all know the old saying that “practice makes perfect” and that adage is particularly applicable to interviewing. Students often tell us that by Wednesday of EIW, after several screening interviews, they know exactly how they want their interview answers to sound. We want you to be confident about your answers before EIW even starts! Now is the time to book a mock interview with OCS, click to learn more about guest coaches available for mock interviews.
