Career Fair – Caryn Schreiber, Skadden

“Hands down, this job fair is by far the best and most important recruiting event of the year. It brings together all of the top, highly qualified, diverse candidates in the country that have an interest in practicing law in the Bay Area. From a review of the candidates we called back, we could have filled our summer program hiring needs if everyone had accepted.”

Caryn Schreiber, Skadden

Career Fair – Misbah Mohiuddin

The first day before the reception was incredible. I found these were really great interview experiences whether they pan out or not, it certainly prepared me for on-campus interviews. I was very nervous and unsure of what to expect but now I feel very comfortable and it is really about sharing who you are with the person across the table to see if you’re a good fit for their firm. I recommend the fair and suggest students’ book tickets early if traveling. The people at Orrick and the Bar Association of San Francisco really do want to see your succeed and I felt it.
