Pre-OCI Resume Collects
Private sector employers that wish to receive applications from Duke Law rising 2Ls and 3Ls prior to OCI, or that are unable to participate in OCI, are encouraged to post positions via five Pre-OCI Resume Collect sessions over the summer. There are no fees to participate in Pre-OCI Resume Collects. Registration for Summer 2024 Pre-OCI Resume Collects will open via the OCI tab in Symplicity on March 11, 2024. Employer registration will close for each session at 12pm ET the Friday before the session deadline date. Employers may reach out directly to Resume Collect applicants at their convenience to schedule screening interviews during the summer.
The following student application deadlines were available for summer 2024:
- June 12 (student deadline 12pm ET – employer packets available by 1pm ET)
- June 12 IP ONLY session (student deadline 12pm ET – employer packets available by 1pm ET)
- June 26 (student deadline 12pm ET – employer packets available by 1pm ET)
- July 10 (student deadline 12pm ET – employer packets available by 1pm ET)
- July 24 (student deadline 12pm ET – employer packets available by 1pm ET)
Employers may set up postings to receive applications in one packet on the session deadline, or may opt to have students apply directly on a rolling basis via email or the employer website. Pre-OCI Resume Collects postings will be viewable to students in early May. Spring semester grades are typically provided to students in mid-June.
If you are posting a Resume Collect in addition to your OCI schedule, please include the following language in both the Pre-OCI Resume Collect and OCI postings:
“In addition to participation in OCI Segment I, the [location] office of [organization name] will accept 2025 summer associate applications via the [date] deadline Pre-OCI Resume Collect session. Students who do not receive an interview invitation through this early submission process are encouraged to submit a bid for OCI Segment I.”
If you have questions or need assistance with setting up your Resume Collect, please contact Susan Anderson. Government & Public Interest employers and private sector employers preferring later application deadlines for rising 2L and rising 3L may post opportunities via the Job Postings tab in Symplicity starting in August 2024.
