Create A Connection With A Law Firm!

Small law firms tend to hire based on their need for an extra pair of hands, and they most often hire someone with whom they have a connection.  You can create that connection by networking at local Bar Association events.  Most Bar Associations have events year round, including luncheons and socials.  Bar associations also sponsor continuing education seminars, which are s-u-p-e-r-b opportunities to network with lawyers in your chosen area of law.  For example, check out the events listed below sponsored by the Dade County Bar Association in the upcoming months.  (Generally, you do not have to be a member of the Bar Association to attend the event.)  Then, call or meet with a Career Services Counselor to plan your strategy for creating your connection at the event!
