GW/Georgetown Law Public Sector Recruitment Program (PSRP)

The Georgetown University Law Center and the George Washington University Law School invite you to participate in the 2019 Public Sector Recruiting Program (PSRP), an annual opportunity to recruit current law students for summer 2019 and entry-level employment opportunities.  Over 200 DC area and nationwide government agencies, non profits and public interest law firms participated in 2018.

This year, the Interview and Table Talk Program will be held on Friday, January 17, 2020.  Employers participating in the Resume Collection do not need to attend the Program at the Marvin Center.

THREE WAYS TO PARTICIPATE:

INTERVIEW on-site (Marvin Center): The on-site program will be held on Friday, January 17, 2020 at the George Washington University Law School Marvin Center (800 21st Street NW, Washington, DC) in two shifts:  9:00 am – 12:10 pm and 1:10 pm – 5:00 pm. Employers should choose either the half-day (am or pm) option (up to 11 interviews) or the full-day option (up to 20 interviews). Two 10 minute breaks will be scheduled during each shift and all participating employers are invited to a buffet lunch. Resumes and cover letters of interested students will be available in early January. Because employers that register for the interview option will receive application materials from all interested students, it is not necessary to register for both the interview option and the resume collect option.

TABLE TALK (Marvin Center): Speak informally with an unlimited number of candidates at the George Washington University Marvin Center on Friday, January 17, 2020 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. If you wish to interview candidates and participate in the Table Talk option, you will need to send two representatives from your agency, so that interviews and Table Talk can be conducted simultaneously.

RESUME COLLECTION (never leave your office!): Can’t make it to the program? Let us help you meet your hiring needs by collecting resumes and cover letters for you. You will receive student application materials in mid-January and may invite students to interview by phone or at your office at your convenience.

Please note, we are aware the program date is the Friday before Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, but unfortunately, the Marvin Center was not available on other dates (including our prior one on January 31).
