Plan Your Future
Our Career Services Office (CSO) offers much more than help in finding job opportunities. During your first term at Chicago-Kent, you are assigned a career adviser who will tailor career planning recommendations according to your particular interests in various practice areas, types of employers and geographic areas. Career advisers provide one-on-one counseling, résumé and cover letter reviews, mock interviews, and much more. Students meet with their advisers at least once a year, though we encourage more frequent meetings. The CSO helps administer the first-year summer externship program for full-time students and also manages the law school’s community-based federal work study program, which allows students to earn money toward a portion of their educational costs while gaining practical legal experience at government and public interest agencies.
Services Available 24/7
Our Web-based career management system gives students and alumni access to our resources 24/7. You can search job listings—more than 1,200 posted each year—through this system and also access a wide variety of career resources, submit online job applications and on-campus interview bids, set up counseling appointments, and store your résumé and other career-related documents. Career development programs on a wide range of topics are scheduled at times when no classes meet and are videotaped and posted online for later viewing at your convenience.
