Networking into the New Year

Networking is one of the top ten things that Anneliese suggests that you do over the Winter Break.  (See the article in this Career Brief, point 2.)  There are two holiday receptions for 1L students that we don’t want you to miss.  Please note that 1L students from around the country will be attending these receptions, and we hope that SJQ students are well represented.  The first opportunity is attending an open house hosted by Snell and Wilmer at one of seven locations around the country, including the Salt Lake City office.   The dates vary according to location, but the SLC reception is Tuesday, December 22 at 4:00 pm.  RSVP to Kimberly Sterbach by December 18, 2009 at ksterbach@swlaw.com.  For more information, refer to the invitation placed in your 1L folder in the Gibby.  Business or business casual attire.  (The attorneys will be in business attire, and many students will be dressed in suits as well.)

If you are traveling to Indianapolis after finals, then try to attend the following open house.  Barnes & Thornburg, an Indiana-based firm with offices throughout the Midwest, South and east coast, will host a reception in Indianapolis, also on December 22 between 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  Please RSVP to Debbie Snyder, Director of Recruiting, at dsnyder@btlaw.com.  Business casual attire.
