Employers can schedule interviews on campus year round. During the Fall, employers can interview second year students for summer clerkships and third year students for employment after graduation. During the Spring, in addition to interviewing second and third year students, employers can interview first year students for summer clerkships.
For employers doing on-campus interviews the Career Services Office will collect resumes of interested, qualified students and send them to the employer before the visit. The Career Services Office then schedules interviews based on the employer's selections and timetable.
To set up On-Campus Interviews, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone: (478) 301-2615. Employers may also link to the Fall or Spring On-Campus Interview or Resume Forwarding Request Forms. Print and complete the appropriate Form and fax it to (478) 301-2287.
For employers who prefer to interview students in their own office, the Career Services Office will collect resumes from interested, qualified students and forward them to the employer. The Career Services Office will also assist in scheduling the students for interviews.

The Career Services Office maintains a posting of current positions for students and alumni on our web page. Employers can send us a notice and students and alumni can respond directly to the employer. The notice will remain posted for six weeks unless the employer notifies us that the position has been filled or asks us to keep it posted for a longer period of time. Employers wishing to post Job Announcements for Students or Alumni may do so FREE OF CHARGE by linking to Mercer Law School's Symplicity On-line Job Posting Database. A one-time registration will be required (at NO CHARGE). Alternatively, employers may email the posting information to firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at (478)301-2615 or fax us at (478) 301-2287.
