On-Campus Interview Program (OCI) – No Fee

This program brings employers on campus for full-time job, part-time job, and summer internship interviews. Our on-campus interview option allows 100% prescreening as employers will receive resumes as a group in advance of their visit and select the students whom they wish to interview. Full and half day interviews may also be requested to coordinate with other visits to North Carolina law schools. When on campus, employers can enjoy a private interview suite in our newly renovated interview suites, free Wifi access, complimentary lunch if your schedule runs through the noon hour, as well as free coffee, drinks, and snacks throughout the day.
