REMINDER: New Jobs Available! Fall 2016 OCR Session R Application Open Until Wednesday November 30 at 11:59 p.m.

The next opportunity to apply for Fall 2016 OCR opportunities, Fall 2016 – Session R, is open and applicants can apply, and modify applications, for employers in this Session until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, November 30, 2016.

Don’t forget that there are also opportunities for employment available on the Jobs Board!  OCR is one of our TWO places for you to find jobs; the other is the Stetson Law Jobs tab on Symplicity (i.e. Stetson’s “Jobs Board”).  Be sure to check the Stetson Law Jobs tab frequently, as opportunities are added here by individual employers on their own and new opportunities appear regularly.
