"We like nothing more than getting the opportunity to deepen our knowledge of an employer. From the largest international firms to solo practitioners, from corporations to non-profits, understanding the culture, practice and needs of employers is what we do."
"Our firm has many Cardozo graduates. It is no secret—and my peers know this well: Cardozo is a gold mine of talent."
Tap Into Our Talent
We recognize that the needs of employers vary in terms of the types of students and alumni they seek to hire; the types of positions they seek to fill; and the recruitment-related resources available within their organizations. Our goal is to make recruitment as efficient and seamless as possible. To that end, we customize our outreach and recruitment programs in a manner that best suits each employer’s needs. We offer a number of unique opportunities for employers to introduce themselves to Cardozo students and alumni both within the context of our fall and spring recruitment programs and throughout the year.
Hire a Graduate
Our office is happy to recommend graduates that are eager to start their careers and contribute to your practice. The Office of Career Services wants to learn more about your practice and hiring needs so that we can identify candidates specifically tailored to you. We can assist you with drafting a job description that will attract candidates to your job.
Cardozo students generally work full time during the summer and many take part-time work during the semester.
Externships for School Credit
Qualifying employers may be interested in taking externs throughout the year. Externships are primarily for the benefit of the student; it must be substantive legal work; the externship is for 130 hours of work which usually breaks down to 10-15 hours per week over the course of the semester or summer.
On-Campus Interviewing and Hiring Policies
We have several on campus interviewing programs throughout the year for summer internships and post-graduate positions. To learn more about on campus hiring programs and how your organization can participate, please contact our Director of Programs and Data, David Adams, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Career Services’ policies surrounding hiring, including on-campus hiring is designed to offer transparency to students and flexibility and responsiveness to our employers. For a discussion of hiring policies, please contact Dean Carey Bertolet Grand at email@example.com.
