Jobs: Job Search Beyond Your Backyard

Vol. 39 No. 5


Carla J. DeVelder, a former law school associate dean with experience in student affairs and career development, is in-house counsel in the insurance industry in Omaha, Nebraska.

It is the fortunate law student who manages to make the planets align in such a way that he or she is attending the law school of his or her choice, which just happens to be located in the city from which he or she hails and in which he or she plans to live and practice after law school. For those individuals, a whole host of job search issues (networking opportunities, integrating into the bar, articulating their interest in a geographic area, etc.) become moot, allowing for a singularly focused job search.
