If you’re looking for a public interest or government job in the Midwest for next summer or after graduation, you should definitely participate in the Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference (MPILCC.) This is a huge career fair where hundreds of interviews are conducted and many employers throughout the Midwest attend. It takes place at Northwestern Law School on Saturday, February 4 at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in downtown Chicago. All Notre Dame law students received an email inviting you to sign up for an MPILCC symplicity account. You have until 9pm tonight to sign up.
To sign up, follow the link in the email and create a password. Once you upload a resume, you can bid for interviews with employers attending the conference. To bid for interviews, in the side menu, click on “MPILCC interviewing,” click on an individual employer to bid, and you’re off. You can bid for interviews with up to 20 employers. You have until Wednesday, January 11 at 3:00pm to bid for interviews. You can get all of the information you need about the conference on the MPILCC website here.
Some of the employers interviewing include the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office, Illinois Commerce Commission, Legal Aid of Western Ohio, Office of the Chief Counsel Department of Homeland Security ICE, U.S. Department of Education, and many others.
If you are at all interested in working in the Midwest either next summer or after graduation, this is not an opportunity to pass up. Some organizations do all of their hiring exclusively at MPILCC.
Be sure to sign up for the MPILCC symplicity by 9 tonight and bid on employers by 3:00pm on the 11th.
