As an LL.M. student, you are welcome to meet with a career counselor to discuss your job search, have your resume (CV) and cover letters reviewed, practice interview skills, and take advantage of the many resources that the CSO has to offer. You are also encouraged to attend CSO panels, workshops, and networking opportunities throughout the year, including the Foreign-Trained LL.M. Job Search Workshop (September 10, 2019) and Resume & Cover Letter Workshop (October 15, 2019).
It is important to know that most employers who recruit at Texas Law are primarily interested in recruiting students in the J.D. program and only a few interview LL.M. students. Nevertheless, LL.M. students have access to Job Bank on Symplicity. Additionally, for those interested in finding legal jobs in the U.S. and abroad, please visit GoinGlobal – International Job Search. The site features 38 Country Career Guides, 53 City Career Guides for the United States and Canada, corporate profiles, and more than 16 million internship and job listings within the U.S. and around the world.
If you would like to make an appointment to meet your career counselor, Rachel Smith, please stop by the CSO in TNH 3.130, call 512-232-1150, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
