Information for Employers
The Center for Career Development at the UConn School of Law offers a variety of ways for employers to engage with UConn Law students and graduates. We regularly hold recruiting events, participate in regional and specialty career fairs and conferences, and invite employers to contact us directly any time they have positions to fill. Employers have easy access to all our recruiting materials and information via Symplicity, our password-protected recruiting site. We offer several formal interview programs, but are always available to offer other scheduling to support employers when they are hiring.
Post a Job Opportunity
The Center for Career Development invites employers to post law-related internships and part-time jobs, along with post-graduate opportunities, on our free, online, interactive platform. See instructions on using Symplicity and our complete Employer Policies for more information about working with the UConn Law Center for Career Development.
