December 1st is just around the corner and while it marks the official beginning of the 1L job search, it is important to recognize that the hiring timeline for 1Ls typically spans from December through mid-spring. Certain sectors are more actively involved in recruiting during the month of December, so we recommend that you identify the hiring timeline of prospective employers and strategize which applications to submit in December. If you have questions about the hiring timeline of any specific employers or sectors, we recommend you schedule a follow-up conversation with an OCS or OPICS counselor before you leave for winter break. As a reminder, now is a great time to begin updating your resume and drafting cover letters that market your skills and the reasons you are interested in a particular employer; you can check out sample application materials online.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
