The Ovadia Career Planning and Placement Office looks forward to assisting employers in recruiting students for part-time school year, summer and post-graduate positions. The CP&P office utilizes a variety of services in order to assist employers in meeting their recruiting needs.
On-Campus Interview (OCI) Program and Résumé Collect Program
We invite you to participate in our On-Campus Interview (OCI) and Résumé Collect programs.
Our students are interested in opportunities with large, mid-sized and small law firms, corporations, state and federal judges, public interest organizations, and local, state and federal government entities. For a complete list of interview programs available to Florida International University College of Law students, click here.
You may request OCI participation or résumé collection via Symplicity. Please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (305) 348-8376 if you have questions about our recruiting programs, or if you have misplaced your Symplicity account log-in information.
On-Campus Interview (OCI) Programs
Each fall, employers have the opportunity to conduct on-campus interviews with second- and third-year students for part-time school year, summer and permanent positions. In the fall, our OCI Program is split into two phases; Phase one takes place in mid-August and Phase two takes place in September and October. Dates are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis (once slots for the August OCI phase are filled, requests will be moved to the September OCI phase). All interviews will be held at FIU Law.
We also offer a Spring OCI program that typically is held from January through April. Employers may request schedules to interview students from any class year during that program.
Résumé Collect Programs
For employers who choose not to conduct interviews at the law school but who are interested in receiving résumés from FIU Law students, we offer our Résumé Collect Program. We will share information about your employment opportunities with our students, collect application materials and forward those materials to you so that you may review them and interview students at your convenience.
Online Job Posting Services
If you are seeking to fill your summer, part-time, entry-level or lateral employment needs, we encourage you to submit a job listing through our web-based job posting system, Symplicity. This service is free for employers. You may create your own Symplicity account, which will enable you to post your available positions or you may send the information to our office for posting via email to email@example.com or fax (305) 348-2301.
It is the policy of FIU Law that no citizen of the United States or any other person within the jurisdiction thereof shall, on the grounds of race, creed, color, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran’s status, or national origin be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity of the University. Employers who advertise positions through the CP&P Office or participate in CP&P recruitment programs must read the non-discrimination policy and undertake to observe it.
Please be aware the CP&P Office will no longer post unpaid internship opportunities for students to volunteer at private law firms. Recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor has led us to conclude that placing students in unpaid internships is appropriate only when it is part of a structured educational process for academic credit, overseen by faculty, and managed as part of our overall clinic and externship program.
