Trust me when I say that firms come around and you want to be one of the people that knows when they do. I know it's scary now to have 1/2/0 CB's, but you have to keep being as proactive as possible.
Also, read my thread. If you're worried about interviewing, OCP can help set you up with someone -- but try and ask for a real attorney and not just someone in the office. I got pretty brutal feedback last year, but it was definitely worth knowing how/where I was screwing up.
What do you mean by talk to OCP and put ourself on their radar? Other than asking for interviewing advice, what can they do? E.g., How do I get on a list of people they'll contact if a firm contacts them?
I would suspect she means to go in and ask for help. Tell them that you didnt do well at OCI and they will hell you out.
Yup. If you go in and ask, they will give you advice and help you out. Tell them your concerns, what you feel might've gone wrong, ask what you can do to get a SA job, what you've done since OCI, etc.
I don't think there's a magic "list" or anything like that, but the more you work with them and listen to them, the more willing they will be to help you out (call firms you did CB's with, send you contacts for firms looking, etc.). But don't pushback against them or say what they suggest "won't work". Listen to them, do what they say, and they will help you out.
