In July, SVUDL students and staff attended a workshop at Orrick in Menlo Park, led by SVUDL Board Member and Orrick Partner Ellen Ehrenpreis, Recruiting Manager Michelle Lockhart, Associate Kristina Pham, and a number of summer law associates.
The Orrick team helped SVUDL students begin to build their skills for interviewing. The time and effort spent in this workshop will further prepare the students for upcoming opportunities as they apply to college, scholarships, and ultimately future jobs.
Using an assets-based approach, students learned how to authentically share their personal experiences in order to make themselves stronger candidates and to help them stand out even more to those conducting the interviews.
Each student was able to spend one-on-one time with a summer law associate to dive deeper into what interview situations actually look and feel like, and to practice how the students can best share and communicate their personal stories.
Thank you to the Orrick team for giving their expertise and time. This tremendous effort will bear fruit for years to come!
