Career Services for Alumni

Support from Career Services doesn’t stop once you land your first job. We make a lifelong commitment to all Georgia State Law graduates.

More than 85 percent of our alumni have jobs using their law degree within nine months of graduation. This includes physicians and intellectual property experts who have added Georgia State law credentials to enhance their careers. So whether you are pursuing your first or fourth job, we can help you with job leads, alumni connections, and resume and interview skills review.

Staying in Touch

When you change jobs or career status, contact Career Services and the Alumni Relations office. By keeping us updated with your successes, we can better support new and upcoming graduates as they seek internships and employment.

Another way to stay in touch with Georgia State Law is to return to campus for speaking engagements and other programs, which our students value. Contact us to let us know if you or your company can participate in speaking engagements, on-campus interviews, networking events or job fairs.

The best way to post or find job leads is via Symplicity.

Career Services maintains the following reciprocity policy:

  • Reciprocal services are available on a one-to-one basis to students and graduates of other ABA-accredited/NALP member law schools who permit Georgia State Law students and graduates use of their services. Reciprocity will only be granted to one law school in the state of Georgia.
  • Requests for reciprocity must be made in writing by a Career Services official two weeks prior to any visit. Requests must include contact information for the student/graduate, including address, and whether requesting in-office or online job-posting access. The student/graduate should wait for a copy of our written response before contacting this office. No walk-ins or phone requests will be considered.
  • Reciprocity is granted for a period of three months and will expire on the date listed in the letter granting reciprocity. If a student is requesting online access, his or her reciprocity will start the day payment is received. A request for renewal will be treated as a new request.
  • Reciprocity is not available during fall on-campus recruitment (Aug. 1 through Nov. 1).
  • Reciprocity services include in-office access to employment listings and review of materials in the Career Services Resource Center or the option to access our job postings online for a $25 fee.
  • Services don’t include participation in on-campus interviews, job fairs, employer mailings, resume referral or counseling. All students/graduates granted reciprocity must sign in at the Career Services reception desk to have in-office access.
  • Applicants who are granted reciprocity must state in cover letters to employers that the job listings were provided by Georgia State University College of Law’s Career Services Office through a reciprocal agreement with their school. Failure to comply will result in revocation of reciprocity privileges.
