Job Search Resources

Most commonly used job listing sites.

Whether you are seeking opportunities for internships or post-graduate employment, we’ve curated a few starting points for  job listings below.  These are places to start your search and are not all inclusive.  As always, in addition to these resources, all GW Law students are encouraged to work with our counselors to develop an individualized job search strategy.


The Career Center uses CORE to manage recruitment programs, events, and job listings.  Job listings open to 1Ls after December 1st.

CORE uses a single sign-on system so access to CORE must be through your email address.  Please try logging out of your account and logging into CORE with your email address.  Note that when you go to the log-in page for CORE, the page will re-direct you to a page that looks like your GMail log-in for your @law account.


Job listings in the PSJD database include internships (fall, spring, and summer), postgraduate fellowships, and a wide variety of permanent positions.  PSJD also includes over 13,000 organizational profiles for nonprofit, government, and other public interest employers spanning the globe.

  • Use the “Resource Center” to learn more about career paths in criminal law, government, and public interest.
  • Register with your email address to access job postings for government and public interest organizations.
  • Use the “Advanced Search” to search Jobs & Employers by practice area and geographic preferences.

Gov't Honors & Internship Handbook

More commonly referred to as the “Arizona Guide” this resource is a compilation of legal internships in government.  The resource primarily focuses on opportunities in the federal government, but some state internships are also included.  This is a resource that requires a subscription, so students must log in to the law school portal to access the username and password information.

To access the AZ Guide, log into the GW Law Portal, Under Department Info, click “Career Center”>“General Information”>“Log-in credentials and passwords.” The login and password information are located on this page.

  • Use this guide to review summer, fall, and spring internship opportunities at Federal government agencies and some state agencies.
  • Detailed information by class year, contact information for hiring agencies, and application deadlines are set forth in this guide.
