Fall and Spring Recruitment Programs and Résumé Collects

Every year OCS invites employers to participate in our Fall Recruitment Program that takes place throughout August, September, and October, and our Spring Recruitment Program that takes place throughout January, February, and March. There is no fee to participate. These programs are designed specifically for employers with future hiring needs for the summer or spring and are looking for law clerks or recent graduates for associate positions.

Through these programs, we collect student resumes, distribute them electronically to you, and schedule interviews on our campus on your desired date. Our recruitment programs allow you to interview multiple students during a single morning or afternoon session on campus. If you cannot come to campus but still wish to receive resumes, you can select the “Resume Collection” option when registering.

You pre-screen resumes and other application materials, selecting only those students whom you wish to interview. If you have questions, please email Kimberly Underdown or call her at (210) 436-3511.

Project and Remote Opportunity Program (PROP)

Our Project and Remote Opportunity Program allows our students to get experience while providing you with assistance to meet your short-term needs. Students can help you with research, writing, discovery, trial preparation, due diligence, or transaction closings, among other tasks. The nature of this program lends itself to many creative temporary staffing solutions.

St. Mary’s Project and Remote Opportunity Program provides employers with a fast option for securing qualified applicants for temporary law clerk and associate assignments. These short-term assignments can also be done remotely if you are outside the greater San Antonio area.

If you would like to consider St. Mary’s law students, post your positions in CORE.

How do you benefit? The Project and Remote Opportunity Program can help streamline your hiring process, connect you with qualified candidates quickly and efficiently, and you can hire as needed.

If you are interested in learning more about the Project and Remote Opportunity Program, email Kimberly Underdown or call her at 210-436-3511.

Firm or organization representatives are welcome to attend, or we can have promotional material available for students to review.
