Fall OCI Recruiting “Must Knows”
The Fall Recruitment Handbook linked below, takes you through the Fall Recruiting process step-by-step. There are a few important items, though, that we would like to highlight in order to make your participation in the Fall Recruiting process as easy for you as possible
1. OCI is a two-step process. First, you must research the employer and review their hiring criteria. Second, apply/bid online on Symplicity. Students will be notified via e-mail with information on applying to any employers that are late additions after the deadline.
2. Bidding closes automatically at NOON the resume "Drop Day". Please be sure to give yourself enough time to complete the entire bidding process and review your bids before the bidding system shuts off at noon.
Withdraw any bids for employers for which you no longer have an interest by noon.
3. To apply/bid for employers, you must upload your application materials using Symplicity as a repository and for
each employer submit an electronic copy of all requested documents.
4. In order to participate fully, please be sure that your email address (one you check) is listed correctly in the
“Profile” section on Symplicity. This is our primary mode of communication for OCI to broadcast interview
availability, cancellations, additions, and other important changes.
5. URGENT TRANSCRIPTS NOTE: ASU transcripts, the PDF version you receive through the online ASU
Interactive or My ASU, has an embedded encryption that creates an error page for the Resume Packets
that are sent to employers. Therefore, you must convert your PDF version into a Word document before
uploading your transcript and applying to Fall OCI employers. Please view the Quick OCI Process Guide below
for instructions on converting PDF to a Word document.
6. OCI and other Fall Recruiting programs represent only a small portion of job opportunities. Throughout the
year, Career Services offers programs, panels, and individual counseling to teach you lifelong career
development and job search techniques. Please take advantage of these services to help you explore
and pursue your goals.
7. NALP Hiring Guidelines: The National Association for Law Placement has issued guidelines for the offers
and acceptances of employment. Most participating OCI and national firms follow these guidelines which
include deadlines for holding offers open and dates by when candidates must accept offers or chance having
the offers rescinded. Please read the NALP Student Professionalism document below that outlines these
