So early interview week has wrapped up and you’re eager to go on more interviews? Over 150 employers, from all across the country, interview for post-graduate and 2L summer positions at the EJW Conference & Career Fair. The conference takes place on Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29 in Washington, DC. Registration is open now through September 14th and only costs $25.
So far, some of the employers attending the conference this year include:
Animal Legal Defense Fund
Bay Area Legal Aid
Bet Tzedek Legal Services
Colorado Public Defender
Federal Defenders of San Diego
Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia
U.S. Army JAG
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
Beyond interviewing opportunities, the conference is full of excellent presentations, including a keynote with Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan!
I attended the conference the past two years and found the presentations and networking opportunities to be tremendously helpful. I got the chance to speak with many of the employers and to ask them what they look for in a potential hire. So if you see an employer that interests you, be sure to contact me for help optimizing your application.
