For Employers who do not interview students on-campus, will you:

send, upon request, one package containing resumes/transcripts? Yes
post a notice directing students to apply directly to employer? Yes

If you provide job listings for graduates, describe how to send notice, when employers can expect responses, length of time notice is posted (whether in print or online), etc.
Recent graduates and alumni have access to our job posting website, CORE, which uses the 12Twenty platform. Employers can post jobs to CORE directly or can ask the Career Services Office to post jobs for them. Jobs are posted for a default of two months. However, an employer can select a date when the posting will become inactive.

FIRST-YEAR STUDENT Describe any special regulations pertaining to the recruitment of first year students. For example, are first year students eligible for spring OCI? When are job notices posted during second semester?
Upon matriculation, first-year law students can begin reaching out to employers about employment opportunities, attending Career Services workshops and events, participating in OCI, and accessing job postings.
