Overview of the LLM Career Curriculum

July

Incoming students receive information from the Office of Career Services regarding preparing a resume for review and other job search preparation tips.

August-September

An orientation session for LLM students takes place to ensure a smooth transition into the fall semester and the job search process. Students receive their CSM username and password to begin accessing job listings, job search resources, and the OCS events calendar. Resumes submitted in July are returned to students.

OCS hosts in-depth job search workshops targeted to Tax and Foreign-Trained LLMs. Students may begin setting up one-on-one career counseling appointments after attending a job search workshop. Non-tax, US-trained LLMs may schedule one-on-one appointments once classes begin.

The fall on-campus interview program for Tax/International Tax LLM students begins in September and runs through November.

OCS hosts a panel and reception for Foreign-Trained LLM employers, alumni and students. A panel of Foreign-Trained LLM partners and employers of foreign-trained students speak about the job market in NYC and globally. A reception designed to help students network follows the panel.

Foreign-Trained LLM students submit their resumes and selections for the January International Student Interview Program.

OCS will provide an interviewing skills workshop video.
