Did you know that over 80% of law students obtain their first post-graduate position through networking contacts?
The Career Services Department recognizes how critical networking is to your success, and to foster your networking abilities, we have launched a networking initiative targeting three key markets – Orlando, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. The program will meet monthly throughout the year to cultivate your networking skills, and 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
Please join us for the next Networking Club Meeting Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 5:15 p.m. in Room 400. Our networking clubs include students interested in developing practices in Atlanta, Orlando or Washington D.C., but the skills we are learning and discussing would benefit all students. Next week’s meeting will focus on Informational Meetings–What they are, how to land them, and how to prepare for them. Please plan on attending and bring a friend!
