Hoping to Work in Portland? Save These Dates
Published in the November 1, 2011, Advisor
We are currently preparing for our Portland Interview Program, an on-campus recruiting event for Portland-area employers that takes place in our UO Portland Center.
This year, we expect to host employers on two days: Friday, January 20, 2012, and Friday, February 24, 2012. You will apply with participating employers through Symplicity; the application deadline will fall about two weeks before the interview date.
In addition to saving those dates in your calendar, you should prepare for this program by taking these steps:
- Update and polish your resume.
- Think about how you can best explain your connection to, and interest in, Portland in your cover letters.
- Line up a few references who are happy to speak favorably about your potential as a lawyer.
- Identify a recent work product that you can submit as a writing sample, and polish it.
