Yeah, but not all of the employers have posted yet. Just looked at the EJW CCF page, and it said that employers have until 9/5 to post positions.

Btw, anyone else psyched out by the sea of EJW strike-outs from last year on the Prosecution/PD Gunner thread? :|

Are you considering applying for the EJW fellowship too? Or just attending the conference?

I plan to apply to the EJW fellowship as a rising 3L.

Since I'm right now a rising 2L, I'm attending the fair to "table talk" and interview for 2L summer internships (provided that I don't get dinged by every place I apply to, lol)

Are "table talks" like mini informal interviews? Should I give a copy of my resume to employers I table talk with?

You should look at table talk as your opportunity to convince the employer that they made a mistake not selecting you for the interview, and that you are in fact the person they should hire for their open position. Absolutely give them a resume and also a targeted cover letter.

So it would be worth the cost to go even if I got no interviews at all? Do you have personal experience of getting a position thru table talk alone?

I am participating in OCI, but I am considering doing this job fair as well provided that I have enough money for travelling/hotel!

Hey, so in the activity tab, I see some places say "Accepted students sign up open" but my preselect status still says "requested."

Does that mean I probably got dinged from the place since I dont have any notification email?

Employers just started reviewing apps today and have until Oct. 3 to make interview selections. Don't freak out yet.

Do we get an email if selected for an interview, or do we have to obsessively check the application portal thing?

I do think we are supposed to get an email though if selected. But it's either obsessively check my email, or obsessively check EJW. Six of one, half-dozen of the other ... :|

ejw can be so brutal..a couple of my 3L friends who went last year told me about the competition. .one of them applied for 8, received 4 interviews and got 1 offer..

I did 7 apps, all pd work..I'm trying not to second guess myself by saying I should have applied to more

yeah, judging by the "prosecution/pd gunner" thread from last year, it was a veritable bloodbath. :|
