As you learned in your EIW Information Sessions in April, OCS hosts Interview Workshops in DC and New York over the summer to help you prepare for the upcoming recruiting season. In these workshops, you will learn tips for tackling tough questions, how to make the most of your past experience and ways to stand out (positively) from the crowd. Each Workshop will be followed by a short mixer with food, drinks and Georgetown alums. The mixers will provide an opportunity to learn more about the firms and practice your networking skills!
Firms host summer receptions for students who may be interested in interviewing with them in August. In addition to being a great way to educate you about the firm, some firms use these events as a way to identify students they want to interview during - and even before - EIW.

The Mock Interview Program is a great opportunity for students to practice their interviewing skills before fall recruiting. Students select the city in which they would like to do the interview (most often, the city where they're working over the summer) and OCS will canvas employers to match you with attorneys who conduct the interviews in their office at a mutually agreeable time. It’s also a great way to expand your network and give yourself an opportunity to be recruited at the host firm; each year employers tell us that they have brought back mock interview candidates for callbacks and even summer employment.
