Student resources

The Career Services Office has created instructional materials to help you organize your career planning and professional development needs. After looking over the following guides, please feel free to make an appointment with a member of our staff to discuss any of these topics. You will also be able to access a variety of resources, including job postings on CareerNet, our career search engine.

Preparing for the job search

A law degree offers nearly limitless employment options that include jobs in private practice, government, public interest, judicial clerkships, corporations, graduate study or fellowships, teaching, administration and library or information science—or alternative careers that may seem to have nothing to do with your law degree.

Your goal is to leverage information about which jobs are available through resources at the Law School and your personal contacts. A good resume and cover letter are crucial to your successful job search, and the time you devote to perfecting your resume and cover letters will be rewarded. Craft a resume using our resume guide, listed below, and arrange an appointment to have your resume reviewed by our staff. You can even schedule a mock interview to practice your interviewing skills and receive  feedback. Your early preparation may be the key to your post-graduate success.
