The Ovadia CP&P Office looks forward to assisting employers in recruiting students for part-time school year, summer and post-graduate positions.  The Ovadia CP&P Office utilizes a variety of services to assist employers in meeting their recruiting needs.

On-Campus Interview (OCI) Program and Résumé- Collect Program

The CP&P Office invites employers to participate in its On-Campus Interview and Résumé Collect Programs.

FIU Law 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 FIU Law students, visit the Recruiting Programs page.

Employers may request OCI participation or résumé collection via Symplicity.  Contact lawcareer@fiu.edu or 305.348.8376 with questions about recruiting programs, or with questions about Symplicity account log-in information.

  • 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, the 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.

The CP&P Office also offers 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 FIU Law, butwho are interested in receiving résumés from FIU Law students, the CP&P Office offers a Résumé Collect Program.  The CP&P Office will share information about employment opportunities with students, collect application materials, and forward those materials to employers so that they may review them and interview students at their convenience.

Online Job Posting Services

If an employer is seeking to fill summer, part-time, entry-level or lateral employment needs, the CP&P Office encourages the employer to submit a job listing through the web-based job posting system, Symplicity.  This service is free for employers.  Employers may create their own Symplicity accounts, which will enable employers to post available positions or employers may download and send the Job Posting Form to the CP&P Office for posting via email to lawcareer@fiu.edu or fax 305.348.2301.

*Please note, the CP&P Office maintains the job posting database as a service to students, alumni and employers, and does not validate nor guarantee the accuracy of the information posted.  The Ovadia CP&P Office does not endorse the opportunities posted or the people or organizations posting them.  Applicants are encouraged to research employers and opportunities.*

Non-Discrimination Policy

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 Ovadia CP&P Office or participate in our recruitment programs must read the non-discrimination policy and undertake to observe it.

Please be aware the Ovadia CP&P Office will no longer post unpaid internship opportunities for FIU Law students to volunteer at private law firms.  Recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor has led to the conclusion 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 its FIU Law’s overall Clinic and Externship Program.
