As of May 2013, there have been 35 Moritz Corporate Fellows, and 16 of those year-long Fellowships have been completed. These alumni of the Fellowship Program have accepted impressive employment opportunities. A little more than half of the fellows (56%) have found employment in the corporate setting (both inside and outside of their fellowship corporations). The remaining half is divided between large firms (19%) and government or public interest entities (25%). Employers from these categories include:
Abercrombie & Fitch
Social Security Administration
National Retail Federation
Jill Fridley - URPC
"I have really loved this job. In particular, I have really enjoyed working for [my mentor]. He has really been a great mentor and seems to really care about my career. When I was first applying for different fellowship positions, I had wondered if I might be missing out on certain career development opportunities by not working at a law firm, but my position at URPC has been a great learning opportunity. I've been exposed to many experiences and opportunities that might not have otherwise been available to me at this stage in my career. I am really grateful that Moritz has the fellowship program."
Charlotte Buck –A&F
"[The Fellowship] is an unparalleled opportunity to work in-house. I have friends at law schools, such as Duke, Yale, and Harvard, and they are envious of this program. It gives you the opportunity to work at world-class companies, bottom line."
Stephen Tanner - DSW
"DSW has been an excellent employer for the Fellowship program. Bill Jordan (DSW’s General Counsel) is very cognizant of the program’s goals and is constantly searching for opportunities to enhance my experience as a fellow. I have worked on many high-level projects that few first-year attorneys are exposed to."
Patricia Spitler - Nationwide
"Without this Fellowship opportunity I would have had a much more difficult time obtaining a full-time position in this or any other corporation, which was my ultimate goal. It is extremely difficult to find a position in a corporation coming directly out of law school. This Fellowship provided an opportunity to learn and grow, while showing your value to a corporation that normally would be looking for more experienced attorneys."
