Tip of the Week:
The Office of Career and Professional Development will be
hosting a trip for rising 2Ls to visit law firms in Madison on May 14 and May
15 and Milwaukee firms on May 17. This will be a great chance to get a feel for
some of the larger firms in the area, meet practicing attorneys, and network.
If you plan on participating in this fall's On-Campus Interview program and are
interested in working in Wisconsin, this will be especially helpful for you.
Professional dress is required.
If you RSVP for a day, you must attend the entire day. You can sign up for one day or both Madison days. Additional details will be shared with those who are participating. To RSVP and for more information, check out the events in Symplicity. Please RSVP by the end of the day on this Friday, May 4th.
Learn how to market yourself to potential employers and how to build your network, resume, cover letter, and interview skills. Find out where students have worked during their summers and where recent graduates are employed, make a reciprocity request, order student business cards and utilize UW Law School passwords. Be sure to sign your transcript release form to make the job search in Symplicity easier.
