Let's grow together
Our summer recruiting process
Nexsen Pruet has a recruiting committee that coordinates the recruiting activities for the firm. The committee consists of attorneys from all of our offices. The committee works along with North Carolina Recruiting Chairman Brian Pearce, South Carolina Recruiting Chairman Jim Rourke and Recruitment and Professional Development Manager, Summer Winslow. A large part of the attorneys at the firm have been hired from within the summer associate program.
The recruiting process for summer associates includes a visit to the University of South Carolina School of Law, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Law and Wake Forest University School of Law, where students interview with attorneys from the firm. We also receive and review a large number of resumés from students at other law schools. A number of candidates are invited to interview at our offices. After the interview and evaluation process is concluded, the firm extends offers for summer associate positions.
What you can expect as a summer associate
Our summer associates generally work for us during one of two summer sessions. Our goal is to expose the program participants to a wide variety of our practices and give them a realistic sense of what joining Nexsen Pruet would be like.
It is important to us that our Summer Associates have the opportunity to become acquainted with everyone at Nexsen Pruet, so a variety of social programs are planned throughout the summer sessions. Past events have included:
- Dinners and receptions with members of the firm
- Informal Happy Hours
- Themed Parties
