Why Speed Networking?
In the current virtual climate, it is more important than ever for Santa Clara Law students and employers to establish connections early in the academic year. This event series is an opportunity for students to explore the types of careers that lawyers can have and to spark interest in a particular organization or firm. Students are able to meet with potential employers, learn about what they do, and about the opportunities and application processes, if any, they can expect during this academic year.
Employers can start building relationships with talented students who could be potential hires in the future and receive a Resume Book, while helping our students practice their virtual networking skills. It is also a way for employers to broadcast recruiting needs and hiring timelines of all types including OCI recruiting, fall, spring, summer, and post-graduate employment.
Event Series Format
We have broken the events in the speed networking series down based on the employer sectors that would typically attend Santa Clara Law’s in-person career fairs. Historically, these career fairs have been our Public Interest/Public Service (“PI/PS”) Day Career Fair, our Meet the Employers of OCI: Preview to Fall Recruiting Career Fair, and our High Tech Career Fair.
Attorneys from law firms of all sizes and practices, in-house attorneys, and students interested in working for a firm or in-house, are encouraged to attend our Law Firm and In-House Speed Networking Event.
The events will take place over Zoom. Each event will be broken into groups containing approximately 7-8 employers per group who will be networking with approximately 30-40 students assigned to their group. Employers will rotate through break-out rooms containing 4-5 students per room in 15-minute increments. The Office of Career Management staff will facilitate the rotation, so the participants can focus on engaging with one another. We encourage the exchange of contact information either during or following the events, to facilitate one-on-one networking after the events.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYERS:
In addition to networking with the students assigned to your group, participating employers will receive a Resume Book from the entirety of the students participating in the event(s) you register for. This is an additional opportunity for employers to network with and recruit students of interest whom they did not have an opportunity to meet during the event(s.)
Each organization may register to have up to two (2) attorneys attend the event they sign up for.
