Career Development & Planning

Our mission in Career Services is to empower our students and alumni to actively seek and develop satisfying and fulfilling careers by:

(1) providing individual counseling, educational programming and resources designed to assist students and alumni in applying their education and experiences toward advancing career goals;

(2) facilitating and supporting connections among potential employers, students, alumni and Mercer Law School; and

(3)  providing these services in a professional and responsive manner that respects the individual differences and needs of the students and alumni.

Your Role in the Job Search Process

(1) determine your career interests by performing a self-assessment of your talents and preferences, attending programs and lectures designed to provide you with information on various career options, and interviewing professionals working in your desired field;

(2)  develop job searching skills through participating in skill development workshops and seeking additional individual assistance as needed;

(3) take responsibility for your job search by diligently and consistently seeking employment;

(4) establish and maintain a network of professional relationships, which will not only serve your goals of obtaining employment, but that will also assist you in building your career beyond your first job;

(5) interact with each employer or potential employer professionally, respecting their needs and limited time;

(6)  help the Career Services Office help you and your colleagues by keeping us informed of your job search goals and needs and your current employment status.
