Many employers contact the Career Development Office seeking St. John's graduates with practice experience. To expedite the hiring process for both employers and candidates, the Career Development Office keeps resumes on file of graduates who are seeking new employment opportunities. When an employer who needs a candidate immediately contacts the Office, those candidates with the appropriate experience level and type are contacted to see if they would like us to forward their resume to that particular employer.
If you would like your resume on file with the Career Development Office for this purpose, please forward it with the subject "Alumni Referral Program" to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alumni Job Postings
Job listings are available to alumni on a password-protected Web site, Symplicity, on the same day that they are posted by the Career Development Office. St. John’s obtains job listings from law firms, corporations, public interest organizations, government agencies, and other organizations seeking St. John’s graduates. Alumni are also provided with passwords to access the career related portions of Lexis and Westlaw. For questions about this service, or for further instructions, please contact our office at email@example.com.
Career Development Technology for Alumni
Alumni have access to on-line job postings through the Career Development Office’s Symplicity site. Alumni also have access to the LexisNexis Career Library. Graduates should contact the Office to obtain passwords for each site.
Alumni have free access to Westlaw’s career-related databases for one year after graduation, and should use their student ID to continue accessing the site. Alumni can also use the Public Service Jobs Directory free of charge, and can use the Emplawyernet site for a discounted rate.
