For Employers who do not interview students on-campus, will you:

send, upon request, one package containing resumes/transcripts? Yes
post a notice directing students to apply directly to employer? Yes

If you provide job listings for graduates, describe how to send notice, when employers can expect responses, length of time notice is posted (whether in print or online), etc.
We offer job listings for both students and graduates. Job postings are posted to our online database, Symplicity. Job postings are active for 30 days, or for the amount of time designated by an employer. We offer assistance in preparing job postings and requirements if needed. If you would like to post a job, you can go to https://law-umn-csm.symplicity.com/ and request a login, or email [email protected] Once a job is posted, employers may view and access application materials through Symplicity, have them emailed directly to them, or have applicants follow a process outside of our website through an employers internal process. Credentials (resume, cover letter, transcript, writing sample) may also be sent by email in a single file on the day they are due at the employer's request.

FIRST-YEAR STUDENT Describe any special regulations pertaining to the recruitment of first year students. For example, are first year students eligible for spring OCI? When are job notices posted during second semester?
Consistent with NALP principles, employers are encouraged to schedule recruitment activities in a way that minimizes interference with students’ academic work and exam periods and to exercise particular sensitivity during the first semester of a student’s law school experience.
