Career info for Students
The S. J. Quinney College of Law experience is an investment that pays off in many exciting ways. The challenge is to determine the career that is right for you. The success of our students in finding jobs is well known, but the true value of attendance is the satisfaction our graduates experience over a long and fulfilling career.
SJQ College of Law students and graduates are assisted in their job search by the most responsive placement program in the country. The Office of Professional Development offers recruiting services, workshops, practice interviews, and individual coaching sessions. The PDO won’t hand you a job, but they will provide you with the training, experience and network required for you to carve out your own career.
