On Campus Recruiting: Information for Employers - Capital University Law School

On Campus Recruiting: Information for Employers

  • The formal Fall and Spring On-Campus Recruiting programs are an opportunity to visit the Law School and to meet our most qualified students.

    The Fall On-Campus Recruiting Program is held August through October each year. The program is open to all upper-division law students in the full-time and part-time J.D. program. Alternatively, the Spring On-Campus Recruiting Program is held February through March. The program is open to all full-time J.D. students and upper-division part-time J.D. students.

    Beyond our formal biannual programs, you may visit our campus at any time to interview students. We ask that you give us two weeks’ notice so that we can inform students, collect materials for your review, and set a schedule.

    The Office of Professional Development uses Symplicity to coordinate our on-campus interviews including collecting application materials and setting interview schedules. All services are free.


    Each fall, employers have the opportunity to conduct on-campus interviews with law students for summer and permanent employment. The fall OCI Program offers two sessions:

    • Fall 2022 August Interviews
      • In-Person Interviews - August 1 – August 5
      • Virtual Interviews - August 1 – August 4 (afternoons ONLY)
    • Fall 2022 September Interviews (In-Person or Virtual): September 7 – September 30

    To register, log onto Symplicity, click on OCI from the left menu, then Schedule Request. When the page refreshes, click Request a Schedule in the middle of the page to view the online form.

    If you request virtual interviews, we will use FloRecruit to manage interview links and schedules. Note that for the week of August 1 to August 4, virtual interviews will only be available in the afternoon.

    If you are unable to interview during one of these sessions this fall, we would be happy to schedule an interview date when it is more convenient for your organization. Feel free to contact me to discuss options (Email or 614-236-6889).

    Please note that you will have 100 percent prescreening rights and may select as many or as few students to interview as you would like. We will set your interview schedule based on the number of students you select as well as any other reasonable schedule requests.


    A Resume Collect offers a solution for employers who are unable to interview on campus or virtually that but would like to consider CapLaw students for summer or permanent employment. Through Symplicity, you will be able to post your resume collection online, accumulate resumes through the date of your choice, and then generate a resume booklet for review. 

    To participate in the Resume Collect, log onto Symplicity. Select Job Postings from the left side menu, then Job Postings from the submenu. When the page refreshes, click the Post a Job button in the middle of the page and complete the form. Be sure to select the option to Accumulate Resumes Online.
