The Callbacks for Public Service Program encourages students to consider staying with friends or family when traveling to callback interviews. A student participating in the program will notify participating firms that they have decided to stay with a friend or relative instead of at a hotel during the callback interview. In lieu of hotel expenses, a participating firm would agree to donate the equivalent cost of a hotel stay to Georgetown's Equal Justice Foundation (EJF), a student-run nonprofit organization that supports law students working in the public sector with grants and sponsorship. Students who participate may receive credit towards Equal Justice Foundation hours.
For more information, including a donation form and list of participating firms, please click here.
During this workshop, you will learn how to prepare effectively for a callback interview; the dos and don'ts of callback interviewing; what to expect from a callback interview; how to follow-up on a callback interview; and how to accept and decline offers. In the event you cannot attend the presentation, the program will be videotaped. Detailed information on callback interviews is available on the OCS website here.
