Updating Your Resume as a Recent Graduate

Recent graduates – it is very important that you update your resume to reflect your bar membership status in its various stages, from sitting for the bar to being admitted.  The CDO Alumni Guide provides information on how to make these updates.   If you have any questions or would like someone to review your updated resume, please do not hesitate to contact one of our advisors.

As a reminder, the CDO annually compiles and reports employment statistics to the American Bar Association (ABA) and to NALP, The Association for Legal Career Professionals. This data will be used to determine the law school’s national ranking. Therefore, we encourage each graduate to fill out a Graduate Employment Survey.

The Graduate Employment Survey can now be accessed on Symplicity. To fill out the survey, please log on and select “Profile” from the top navigation bar. Then select the “Graduate Employment Survey” tab and complete as much information as you can. You can save your changes as well as review and edit your information at any time. Please note that your survey responses are completely confidential. If you do not have your Symplicity login information, please email the CDO with your name, graduation month and year and preferred email address. Please allow up to two (2) business days for a response.

Finally, don’t forget that the CDO is here for you during your post-graduate job search.  Do not hesitate to contact our office for assistance.
