Job Search Resources
It is never to early to start thinking about looking for a job. To this end, the librarians in the Law Library have created a research guide called Job Search Resources. It is divided into three main topics: law firms, thinking outside the box, and prospective employer research. The law firm tab links to database website that either have job posting or to directories where you can look for professional contacts that can help you in your job search. Think Outside the Box offers a variety of webpages and library resources to help you determine what non-law jobs are best suited for someone with a JD. Finally, once you have secured an interview, the Prospective Employer Research tab gives you resources that will enable you to research a law firm or company so that you will have background information on the person and organization interviewing you.
