The Center for Career Development uses a web-based system called Symplicity for all job postings and other online career information. Current students and alumni may access more than 1,500 job listings annually from the convenience of their own homes. Your student account remains active upon your graduation from law school and automatically becomes an alumni account. If you do not have a Symplicity account, email firstname.lastname@example.org (Camden location) or CareerDevelopment@law.rutgers.edu (Newark location) with the subject line “Alumni Symplicity Account Request.” Include your full name and year of graduation in the email.
Counselors in the Center for Career Development are available for one-on-one counseling, in person or via telephone, throughout the year. We are here to help you develop a strategy, research potential employers, and point you toward useful resources. To request an appointment, please email email@example.com (Camden location) or CareerDevelopment@law.rutgers.edu (Newark location). Please include your full name and year of graduation.

If you are looking for a job in another geographic area, we can make a request on your behalf to obtain access to the career services office of another law school in that part of the country. Many law schools post information about their respective reciprocity policy on their website. Please check potential schools’ sites when making a decision as to which law school you wish to utilize. After you have selected a school, please contact the appropriate person at your location - Marie Peeke at firstname.lastname@example.org (Camden location) or Wendi Taylor at CareerDevelopment@law.rutgers.edu (Newark location) - to submit a request for you.
The Center for Career Development at Rutgers Law will provide reasonable access to resources for alumni and students of law schools outside the New York and Philadelphia areas on the terms outlined in the policy found here.
