JD Advantage Career Events

If you have any interest in a career outside of traditional law firm, in-house and public sector positions either directly out of law school or, perhaps, at a future point in your career path, you should take advantage of two upcoming opportunities:

  1. Wednesday, January 27 at 12:10pm in Room 246,  Cheryl Heisler, founder of Lawternatives, a Chicago consulting firm working with law school graduates on non-traditional career strategies  will talk about what we call “JD advantage” careers in these terms.
    • The vast array and advantages of these career paths
    • The timing of exploring/accepting these alternative career paths
    • The importance of self-assessment and value matches between an individual and his/her job satisfaction.

Please register for this presentation on Symplicity (under “Events,” then “Workshops”). Lunch will be provided for those that register.

  1. A limited number of students will also be able to talk individually with Cheryl in half-hour appointments for specific counseling on January 27 and 28.  The schedule is filling up but you can still request an appointment by contacting Kylee Gonzalez (Gonzalez.571) with your availability during the days of 1/27 and 1/28 and if space is available she will confirm an appointment time.
