HOW DO I APPLY?
1. Log in to The Law Consortium Symplicity.
2. Click on the [OCI] tab on the top navigation bar.
3. Select the [Employers/Bidding] tab.
4. Choose "2014 Miami Off-Campus Program" from the [Session ID] drop-down menu. The resulting list of employers contains only those that have requested your class year. These are the employers you are eligible to submit (apply) your resume to.
5. The prescreen materials each employer has requested will be noted in the [Documents] column.
6. Click the [Apply] or [Review] button from the list of employers. You will then be redirected to a review page.
7. To apply, click the [Apply] button in the "Bid Details" box to the right of the screen. Pay close attention to this box. If a document type is listed here, it is a REQUIRED document for this specific employer. For example: If "cover letter" is in this box, and "none found" is to the right, you must return to the [Documents] section and upload a cover letter.

Note: Your "default resume" will be included with each application. To submit a different resume (or any requested documents) from those uploaded in your "Documents" section, select the appropriate document from the drop-down in the "Bid Details" box.

Please make sure that you finalize your selections before the application submission deadline.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR AN INTERVIEW?
When the scheduling period opens on The Law Consortium Symplicity Web site, students will be able to view their interview status for each employer to whom they applied. If chosen for an interview, you will have the option of scheduling a specific timeslot on the interview schedule. Alternate candidates will have the opportunity to schedule themselves for any remaining open interview time slots from July 22-23, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN INTERVIEW?
1. Log in to The Law Consortium Symplicity.
2. Select [OCI] from the toolbar at the top of the screen.
3. Select the [Employers/Bidding] tab.
4. Choose "2014 Miami Off-Campus Program" from the [Session ID] drop-down menu.
5. Refer to the [Invitations] column to find out how each employer has responded to your application.
6. If you have been chosen for an interview, you will see two buttons: [Accept] and [Decline]. If you choose to accept, you will be taken to another screen to choose your interview time.

Once scheduling ends, alternates will be able to schedule themselves for any remaining interview time slots on a first-come, first-served basis.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL?
Employers have set aside valuable time to meet with you; therefore, you are encouraged to plan appropriately before accepting interviews. Only accept interviews if you are prepared to travel to Miami on the day of the event. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to cancel an interview, contact your respective law school's career services office as soon as possible.

Students are responsible for following their school's interviewing policies.
