OK to attend "meet the firms night" when working at one?

Postby rodmanhust » Tue Jan 13, 2015 1:48 am

part-time 1E; working as patent agent at a local law office.

Is it still okay to attend the meet the firms event hosted by our law school? My firm will be attending, so I don't want to come off to our HR as seeking another job (I'm not). But at the same time, I'd like to meet some other firms for networking.

Should I even go? Anything to watch out for?

Until your firm guarantees you a job, go to everything.

Thanks. Any tips to avoid the potential awkwardness with own firm's associate and HR?

Mention the free food. If there's no free food mention that you thought there'd be free food. Or you know just be a normal person and mention that you thought it'd be good to attend since your also a law student.
