Professional Development Office Fellowship

Professional Development Office Fellowship

The PDO Fellow will conduct a variety of tasks on behalf of PDO, but the initial and primary objective would be to increase the number of employers participating in OCI and recruiting at the SJQ College of Law. In cooperation with the PDO Director, the Fellow will design and execute a plan to increase recruitment at the SJQ College of Law.

The Fellow will accomplish this goal by researching, identifying and contacting legal employers. He/She will make these employers aware of our students’ accomplishments, our OCI dates, encourage their participation in recruiting events and assist with scheduling visits and easing any logistical issues. The Fellow will conduct research to discover growing fields of employment for our students to consider as careers and bring both traditional and alternative legal employers to the College of Law. Excellent interpersonal skills are required!
