The 31st Annual Northern California Public Interest/Public Sector Legal Careers Day (PI/PS Day), a job fair and networking event, is designed to increase students' exposure to a vast array of public interest organizations and government agencies. Nine northern California law schools and OneJustice host this event every winter in San Francisco. This year's event will be January 31, 2015.
Specific instructions on how to access the PI/PS Day Symplicity database will sent to Davis law students in mid-December by OneJustice. Similar to the On-Campus Interview (OCI) program, PI/PS Day is a formal process where students "bid" for individual interviews. Each bid should be accompanied by a targeted cover letter, resume, and any other application materials requested by the employer. More information, including a list of employers who participated last year, can be found on the One Justice website.
PI/PS Day has two components:
Formal Interviews: Employers conduct on-site formal, pre-screened interviews for paid, work-study or volunteer positions. First, second, and third year students may apply for positions through PI/PS Day. Formal interviews are only open to students of sponsoring schools.
Table Talk: Representatives from organizations are available to speak with students. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the work done by a large number of organizations. This is a great opportunity to introduce yourself to the public service community and learn about a wide range of opportunities. These contacts can produce positive results, either in the short-run or further down the line. Table Talk is open to the public.
