Spring 2016 Resume Books are open for 2Ls, 3Ls, and 4LEs!

2016 January 19

Career Center


What are resume books?

The Career Center often receives requests from alumni and employers of all types for resumes of students interested in certain practice areas or geographic markets. These alumni and employers may seek these resumes for internships, full-time positions, networking, mentoring or other professional opportunities. When the Career Center receives these requests, we will rely on the resumes in the Resume Books as a primary resource for sharing student resumes.

The Resume Books are not a substitute for continuing to apply to job postings and in developing your professional contacts, but are intended as an additional tool allowing the Career Center to provide resumes to alumni and employers.

We encourage all upper class students to use these resume books as an additional tool in their job searches.  For more information on the resume books and submission instructions, click here: Resume Book Handout.
