O'Melveny lawyers (many of whom are former summer associates) will offer their inside perspective on the summer program, as well as what makes O'Melveny unique — including work coordination, diversity, pro bono opportunities, associate professional development and career customization, and other aspects of the Firm’s culture. You can log into the webcasts from anywhere, and will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions during these interactive sessions.
Just a friendly reminder that the bidding deadline for the Early Interview Week 2012 session in Symplicity is THIS WEDNESDAY, July 18th at 6:00 pm EDT. Please double- and triple-check every bid to make sure your resume is attached and that it appears the way you want it to appear.
If you need to update your resume, delete the old resume in your Documents tab and upload the new one with a different title (perhaps save the new version with today's date so that Symplicity recognizes it as a new document.) Then go to OCI and you can either update each bid individually by clicking on "Review" next to the employer and using the drop-down menu under Bid Details; or, if you have made the new resume your "default" resume under Documents, you can click on the "Update All" button under OCI and then the Employers/Bidding tab to update all bids with your default resume at one time. This may take a few minutes and it will help to log out and log back in to see if the updates have been made.
Also double-check your rankings for your EIW bids. No changes can be made after 6:00 pm on July 18th. Remember, Symplicity may slow down tomorrow and on the deadline day due to high user volume. Bid early if possible.
Please talk to your OCS career counselor if you have any questions.

The United States Department of Justice is hosting a Career Information Fair on Tuesday, July 31 from 2:30pm - 3:30pm.
The purpose of the information fair is to give students interested in volunteer opportunities as well as prospective Honors Program (HP) and Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP) applicants, a chance to learn more about the many offices and components in the Department of Justice. The timing of the information fair coincides with the HP and SLIP application which opens on July 31 and closes on September 4, 2012.
There is no interviewing at the fair. Instead, attendees are encouraged to visit with representatives at the various information booths and learn about the interesting and unique work of each office. This is a great opportunity for students to find out more about the many things the Department of Justice has to offer and ask specific questions about volunteer positions as well as the Honors Program and Summer Law Intern Program.
In order to participate, students must RSVP to Maureen McFeeley at Maureen.C.McFeeley@usdoj.gov no later than Friday, July 20. For security purposes, individuals requesting to participate must include the following information: (1) full name; and (2) law school.
Space is very limited, and individuals will be selected on a first come, first served basis (each area law school will be permitted a limited number of slots per school).
Information including address, specific DOJ entry location, required I.D., etc. will be emailed to the attendees by Thursday, July 26.
