Telling 1L firm about OCI

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 13, 2012 4:59 pm

Does anyone have tips on how to tell your 1L SA firm you need time off to interview at OCI, fairs, etc? Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but I'm a little frightened about telling my current firm that I can't come in because I'm interviewing with other firms. Just say "I won't be in XX because of my school's OCI" straight up, or try to suggest that I would gladly stay at this firm if I get an offer to return, or none of the above? This is a boutique in a secondary market with a small SA class.

My firm didn't care at all.
