GOODRecruit: OCI Experiences and Tips

“We hope this GOODBlog provides encouragement and advice to any law student partaking in on-campus interviews (“OCIs”). Despite it being a nerve-wracking, long, stressful day, we like to hone in and find that silver lining. Luckily, our current articling students and summer students have found a number of positives to look forward to during OCIs. Below you will find what each student has to say about that, plus an OCI-related tip!
