The Office of Career & Professional Development hosts a number of Career Fairs, which allow employers to meet with students on campus and mingle in a professional atmosphere.
This annual event Spring event allows attorneys and recruiters to meet and talk with students who will participate in our Fall On-Campus Interview (OCI) program. Typically, about 200 students attend the event. This is an excellent opportunity to make an impression on students before they begin researching and bidding on Fall OCI employers during the summer.
The Intellectual Property and Technology Career Fair is an annual event in late January hosted by the UC Hastings' Office of Career & Professional Development and several Hastings Intellectual Property and technology law organizations. The program has two components: a Career Panel moderated by Kate Patterson, a local IP recruiter, showcasing different intellectual property and technology law practices (intellectual property litigation, patent prosecution, and technology transactions); and the Career Fair, an informal table-talk and reception with many different IP and technology law employers. This event is well attended by over 100 students and about 30 employers each year. Participation is free to students and employers.
In addition, each year three employers have the opportunity to send an attorney to the panel and sponsor the event, underwriting the cost of the reception. The sponsors receive acknowledgement in all the publicity surrounding the event.
This event is a wonderful and cost-free opportunity to meet students interested in intellectual property and technology-related practices, and to help students learn about your organization and practice. You do not need to be hiring to participate – this is a career focused meet-and-greet. We hope you will be able to participate in the upcoming fair by sending attorneys to represent your office.
