Hello Jayhawk fans...
Haven't visited Top Law Schools in a while, but thought today would be a good day to post. One question we get from a lot of prospective students is "If I go to KU, can I take that degree outside of Kansas and the Midwest?" In fact, I was kind of surprised how often that question came up. So I asked my colleague Arturo Thompson in the Career Services Office if he could look at the data to get an answer to that question.
The answer is yes. Proof? In the last four years, our students have found employment in more than thirty states
(34 plus D.C. to be exact). And the list of employers is pretty good too, which you can see by scrolling down to the bottom of our Career Services page (http://www.law.ku.edu/careerservices/employmentstats/
) to look at our list of recent employers.
Now that doesn't mean that finding a job at top firms in New York, D.C., Chicago or Phoenix is a walk in the park. But as many of you know, it's not a walk in the park wherever you go to school. But Jayhawk students are finding these jobs even in this tough economy. The common thread for these success stories is 1) they did well in law school, 2) they had a smart job search strategy, and 3) they put [i]a lot [i]of effort into their job search. Simply sending out resumes is not enough, these students found a way to get someone to pull their resume from the pile. Arturo and the Career Services Office will help you find those ways.
Happy New Year!
