Career Fairs On Campus

Career Development hosts a government career fair in the fall and a public interest career fair in the spring. During these fairs, employers set up informational booths and answer students’ questions regarding their respective organizations. Interview suites are available for on-the-spot interviews or we can set up a schedule and collect application materials through the Symplicity system for interviews at a later date. To participate in these career fairs, please email Caroline H. Young.

Job Fairs Off Campus

Cumberland School of Law participates in several off-campus job fairs designed to give employers the opportunity to interview interested applicants from many law schools at one central location. Employers may screen and pre-select applicants they wish to interview. For information on these job fairs, please contact Caroline H. Young.
