Non-Traditional Career Fair Shows Students Another Path

October 7, 2015

 

The Office of Career Services Office hosts its annual Non-Traditional Career and Information Fair in the Louis W. Riethmann Pavilion on Thursday, Oct. 8 from noon-2 p.m.

In recent years, more SLU LAW alumni have chosen successful and fulfilling career paths outside of traditional law firms. Career Services established the Non-Traditional Career and Information Fair as an opportunity for students to meet attorneys in non-traditional practice areas in the comfort of the law school environment. Employers provide information about their job opportunities, information about their personal career paths and advice for law students who are seeking non-traditional careers. Each year, SLU LAW students make connections at the Non-Traditional Career Fair that lead to internships, jobs and mentorships.

Attorneys from a wide variety of industries are represented including higher education compliance, health systems, real estate, legal malpractice liability insurance, banking, legal research software, life insurance, human resources, legal placement services, law library science, courts administration, diversity legal recruiting, community development, financial services, investment firms and consulting. 

Students are encouraged to wear business casual attire and come prepared with questions for the attorneys. Career Services has many resources for students seeking both traditional and nontraditional careers. Be sure to stop by or schedule an appointment with Mary Pat, Joe, Tina or Jocelyn to chart your individual career path.
