Career Services Information for Students
Job Search Tools
The Office of Career Services is dedicated to assisting students in all aspects of their job search. Students may be interested in working in a NALP firm, mid-size firm, local firm, corporation, government office, judicial clerkship, public interest organization, or any number of other career opportunities nationwide and in Ohio. We can help. Students may submit applications for On Campus Interviews and Resume Collections (see above). Deadlines for submissions are posted on the schedule above. Students have a higher probability of receiving an interview when they submit applications for an OCI and an RC. OCI and RC employers have had a past relationship with the ONU Law Career Services Office and have usually hired successful ONU law grads. Many of these employers are ONU law graduates.
Included in this helpful Job Search Guide for law students with instructions on how to prepare all documents to be submitted to employers.
Job Listings: Many employers, including ONU alumni as well as others with a preference to hire ONU students, post jobs through our office on Legalsift . Students can search these jobs at www.legalsift.com. LegalSift is a job search database we share with other law colleges. It just takes a few minutes to get starated. LegalSift Instructions When applying to a job posting on LegalSift you submit your materials directly to the employer rather than to the Office of Law Career Services.
- Throughout the year the Office of Law Career Services sponsors speakers during the lunch hour. Students are provided lunch while they receive information that will help them get a job and prepare for a legal career. Students must sign up for the BBB and pick up a lunch ticket in the Office of Law Career Services. Only students attending the BBB presentation are provided a free lunch.
