Interview Programs

Main Content

Our students are counseled closely to define their goals and to think about their skills, knowledge, and passions and how they can fit into a fulfilling professional life. The Career and Professional Development Center offers several opportunities for employers to engage Duke Law students in their recruitment efforts.

Summer Recruitment Programs (Private Sector)

Duke Law CPDC offers two programs over the summer for private sector recruitment of rising 2Ls and rising 3Ls: the Pre-OCI Resume Collect Program and OCI Segment I. 2024 Registration for both of these programs will open at 12pm (noon) ET on March 11.

Our Pre-OCI Resume Collect Program is designed to provide maximum flexibility to match the diverse hiring timelines of different employers and offices, with student application deadlines available in June and July. Employers will contact applicants directly to arrange interviews at their mutual convenience throughout the summer.

Our OCI Segment I Program is designed to provide an efficient interview process for employers and offices hiring later in the summer, with CPDC-hosted virtual interviews running from July 30 – August 2. In addition to these programs, employers are also encouraged to follow up directly throughout the summer with students whom they have met during the 1L year.

OCI Segment II (Private Sector)

OCI Segment II is scheduled via employer preselect and interviews take place after fall classes resume. There is no fee to participate. Employers may conduct interviews virtually via Flo Recruit or in-person at the Law School. Our 2024 program will begin in late August, with employer registration opening on March 11, 2024.

Government & Public Interest OCI

Opportunities for Government & Public Interest employers to interview students are available throughout the academic year through our GPI OCI program. There is no fee to participate. Please contact Susan Anderson for more information or to request a schedule.

Spring Interview Program (Private Sector)

Our Spring Interview Program (SIP) is 100% preselect and there is no fee to participate. Employers may conduct interview all class levels virtually via Flo Recruit or in-person at the Law School in February each year. Employer registration for the 2024 program is closed. Registration for the 2025 program will open in October 2024. Please contact Susan Anderson for more information.
