Mock Interviewing: This office conducts a mock interview program with local practicing attorneys. It is an excellent opportunity for students to hone their interview skills, and to get immediate feedback on interviewing weaknesses and strengths.
On Campus Interviewing: During Fall and Spring, employers are invited to participate in our on-campus interview program where students may apply and interview for positions in the private and public sector. If employers are unable to come on campus, they are invited to participate in our resume forwarding program where resumes are collected by our office and sent to the employer.
Resumes, Cover Letters, Writing Samples, and Interviews

Resume and Cover Letter Workshops: Workshops will be held to help guide students in drafting resumes and cover letters. Students are also strongly encouraged to review the guidelines and samples listed in the Career Manual when drafting resumes and cover letters.
Throughout the year the CDO will conduct a variety of seminars and events that focus on topics such as: Resume and Cover Letter Drafting, Career Opportunities, Networking, Clerkships, Dining Etiquette, and Dressing for Success. The seminars provide invaluable advice and can allow students to interact and network with local attorneys and other local professionals.
Job listings are updated continuously. We post positions relevant to our full-time and part-time students, as well as our alumni. Positions are generally local but will also include locations where we have alumni and/or students seeking assistance, as needed.
We meet with each third-year student prior to graduation in order to assess their job search status and strategy. Recent graduates continue to receive assistance with their job search in an effort to promptly secure employment.
