Services Offered

Individual Career Counseling: The CSO staff meets with students individually to discuss career goals and legal credentials, identify strengths and experiences, explore traditional legal and non-traditional career paths, and otherwise provide guidance on career planning and professional development.

Career Resources: Career Services maintains an online database, Barry Connect, which contains job postings, fellowship and internship opportunities; resume and cover letter writing guides and samples; salary information; links to career-related websites; and other resources. We continually review these resources and capture the latest information to make available to students. Visit the Develop tab to the left to access some of these resources.

The CSO library located in our office suite, is available to students and contains a wide variety of publications and resource materials on career issues and self-assessment, alternative career paths, interviewing techniques and many other subjects. In addition, we maintain a number of directories listing attorneys, firms, corporate counsel, and public interest and governmental organizations. The library also houses a computer, printer and fax machine for student use, at no charge if directly related to job searching.

Job Searches: Barry Connect lists openings for students, including part-time and full-time positions, internships, fellowships, alternative careers, and volunteer activities. We update the database daily and it is accessible from any computer. Students can establish a personal job profile based on various criteria and receive automatic notices via email when a position is posted that matches the profile.

Workshops and Programs: The CSO sponsors numerous panel discussions, speakers, presentations, and workshops throughout the year to educate students on career opportunities, meet practicing attorneys from private and public sector employers, and provide necessary skills training. Visit our Facebook page to see highlights and photos of some of our past events.

Recruitment, On Campus Interviewing, and Job Fairs: The CSO coordinates recruitment activities between students and employers through on-campus interviews, resume collections and job postings on Barry Connect. The CSO also facilitates student participation in off-campus recruiting programs, job fairs, and conferences.
