Why Speed Networking?
In the current virtual climate, it is more important than ever for employers and Santa Clara Law students to establish connections early in the academic year. This event is an opportunity for students to explore the types of careers that lawyers can have, to spark students’ interest in an organization or firm, and for potential employers to broadcast their recruiting needs and hiring timelines of all types including OCI recruiting, fall, spring, summer, and post-graduate employment. Employers can start building relationships with talented students who could be potential hires in the future, while helping our students practice their virtual networking skills.
Attorneys from law firms of all sizes and practices along with in-house and public interest attorneys will be in attendance.
The event will take place over Zoom. “Cohorts” including approximately 7-8 employers per cohort will network with approximately 30-40 students assigned to their cohort. 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.
Participating employers will also receive a Resume Book from the entirety of the students participating in the event. 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.
