Job Searching Resources: INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

This guide outlines resources available at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law Career Development Office and the Cracchiolo Law Library, to help you find possible employers, prepare for job interviews, and explore different career tracks.  The University of Arizona College of Law Career Development Office can help you to find more specific job openings.

This guide does not attempt to outline all of the different possible job search engines.  Keep in mind that most government agencies, law firms, and other legal employers maintain their own websites that are important to check when applying for jobs.

But before you begin your job search, you need to decide what sorts of jobs would be the best fit for you.  This page has resources to help you decide what type of law you want to practice, general job searches, application information, and networking.
