The Career Services Department recognizes how critical networking is to your success, and to foster your networking abilities. We are launching a networking initiative targeting three key markets – Orlando, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. The program consists of monthly meetings in which we will present a specific aspect of networking. Members will first meet in one large group to learn a new networking skill. We will then divide the meeting into our three targeted locations in order to investigate and apply the skills you have learned to a real market. You will receive invaluable guidance from career service counselors, as wells as other students, as you work together to prepare a network of contacts in your target market. These efforts will culminate with a networking trip to each city to attend an event sponsored by the Career Services Department with the local bar association. Students who participated in the Networking Clubs last year gained confidence in their networking abilities and learned how to translate those skills into legal experience and job opportunities.
All meetings begin promptly at 5:30. The dates and room assignments for meetings are listed below:
- Thursday, October 4 Room #400—Speaker Bryce Krampert, member of DC club and attendee at event in May 2012
- Thursday, November 1 Room #555
- Wednesday, November 28 Room #555
- Thursday, January 24 Room TBD
- Thursday, February 7 Room TBD
- Thursday, March 21 Room TBD

The events are planned for the week of May 20, 2013 (week after graduation) depending on the event schedule for the bar association.
