The BYU Law School Career Services office partnered with the BYU Law Alumni Association to introduced a fun, new networking opportunity. Students and alumni were invited to participate in speed mentoring. Each student was given six minutes with an alumnus to receive advice and information on their specific legal field before the student had to rotate to a new station. In the end, students were able to have one-on-one interaction with approximately 20 alumni. Due to the events success, another speed mentoring session is planned for spring 2013.
“It seemed to be one of the most popular events we’ve done as far as networking with students; they really like the kind of structure,” said Beth Hansen, Director of Career Services.
The career services office has many other events to involve students in networking, mentoring and finding their niche after they graduate. The 1L practice interview fair was held Nov. 7. And, the winter job fair will be held in January allowing students to meet potential employers and discover job opportunities.
