Job Postings

Online job postings are most students' preferred method for applying for jobs.  So why do we list this last?  Two reasons:

  1. Most jobs are never posted, so relying exclusively on job postings means that you are missing out on great opportunities.
  2. Job postings are the most competitive job searching avenue. If you found the posting, so did a lot of other law students, and your resume will really have to shine to stand out in the pile of law student resumes the employer likely received in response to their posting.

  • That said, it is worth applying to any job posting that you are interested in and qualified for. The best source of job postings for law students is our Symplicity database.
    • On October 15, all 1Ls will receive a Symplicity Username and Password. (Contact our office if you don't receive yours by mid-October.)
    • When you first log on to Symplicity, you will need to input some personal information into your profile before you will be able to see job listings. Once that's done, click on Jobs in the left-hand navigation bar to begin searching for job opportunities.
  • If you are interested in Government or Public interest, don't forget about PSJD and the Arizona Handbooks.
  • Additional job posting websites can be found on our Useful Websites for Legal Job Searches page.
