The USC Gould Career Services Office offers various recruitment options for employers to hire our JD students.
Each August, September and February, employers conduct on-campus interviews (OCI) with USC Gould JD students for summer and full-time employment. All interviews are held at the Radisson Hotel Figueroa, across from the USC University Park Campus.
The summer/fall on-campus interviews showcase our second- and third-year students and are split into two sessions. The first session is Early Interview Week, held the first week of August before classes begin. The second session takes place after the fall semester begins in mid-September.
USC Gould offers a spring on-campus interview option each February providing employers access to first-, second- and third-year students.
If you are unable to interview on campus during one of these sessions, we would be happy to schedule an on-campus visit at your convenience. Please contact Linda Richardson in the Career Services Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 213-740-7397.
Résumé Collection Option
If you are unable to interview on campus but would like to consider USC Gould students for summer or full-time employment, you may register for a résumé collection via Symplicity.
