Evening Student Tip:  Network! Network! Network!  We know that you do not have a lot of downtime, but when you do (during one of your academic breaks), use that time to conduct a targeted networking campaign. You should consider setting up informational interviews and start making those important connections that will come in handy when you are ready to look for your first legal job. These will help you learn what issues are central to your practice areas of interest, and what kind of experience employers are seeking so you will know how to counter concerns about any lack of direct experience.

Registration for the NYU Public Interest Career Fair on February 5 & 6  is now open! Register now until December 1 to upload your resume for interviews with  hundreds of public interest firms and government agencies looking to hire law students for summer 2014.  You can also register for table talk, informal interviews with the same employers.  Come by CSO for more info! 

Are your resumes and cover letters up to date? Free of grammar and spelling errors?  Formatted in a manner to be attractive to legal employers, and showcasing your skills and achievements?  Make an appointment with your Career Services Counselor to go over these crucial documents, and to discuss your career goals.

Thursday, November 14 CSO Y PILOT are hosting a Legal Aid Society Open House at 5:30 in the FCR /BDR.  Meet attorneys and practitioners in an informal manner, and learn about the different career opportunities with the nation’s oldest and largest not for profit legal services provider!  RSVP on Simplicity.

    Be Prepared for Your Job Interview
    The interview is your key to a job offer and it warrants a high level of preparation. We highly recommend this article, "Ten Ways Law Students Can Be More Persuasive In Interviews" written by Lisa Abrams and published in the August 2012 NALP newsletter. Please feel free to schedule an appointment with your career counselor to review and improve your interview techniques!
    Special Notes
    Evening Students
    The Office of Career and Professional Development (OCPD) encourages all evening students to obtain legal experience during their law school career. While those seeking to transition from a present non-legal to a future legal career may find it difficult to make the transition so early, it is important for students to have legal experience on their resume by the time they graduate. Please stop by OCPD or  make an appointment to meet with your career counselor to talk about your individual circumstances.
