"For all of my internships during law school, Seton Hall's Office of Career Services, OCS, was an invaluable resource. OCS coached and guided me during my law school career, prepared me for interviews, and helped me develop a professional network necessary to succeed. With OCS’ help, I obtained various internships, which ultimately allowed me to secure my ideal job at a large New York law firm focusing on corporate transactional work." Dennis De Almeida '15
