Government and Public Interest Table Talk (GPITT)

Government and Public Interest Table Talk (GPITT)
Sponsored by:
The Career Development Office

Law Center Commons
February 8, 2013
11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The Government and Public Interest Table Talk (GPITT) gives students the opportunity to meet with public interest employers and discuss internship opportunities for the upcoming summer or academic year. During the event, local non-profit organizations and government agencies come to campus and set up booths in the Law Center Commons and share information on their organization and its hiring needs. Remember to dress professionally and bring copies of your resume!

Also, look out for the GPITT Informational Session where you will learn what to expect, how to approach employers, and how to receive funds or academic credit for a public interest placement. The Informational Session will take place on February 4, during Public Interest Law Week, February 4-7, 2013.

Take a look at the GPITT website to see which employers will be participating and what you need to do to prepare. Please note that some employers prefer to receive application materials before the event.
