Columbus State Community College’s Career Services will be holding a virtual event for CSCC’s paralegal students on November 8th and 9th 2021. The program’s purpose is to allow students to have a brief (15-20 minutes) conversation with up to four paralegals who work in different areas of the law – corporate law, private law firm, government, and non-profit law. CSCC aims for these conversations to assist students in the selection of appropriate post-graduation job opportunities based on their individual career interests within the field of law.
The events will be held virtually in Zoom between 11:00 am – 1:00 pm on both days (11/8 and 11/9). If you would be willing to volunteer your time, please let me know and I will share your contact information with Amy Hawkins, Career Counselor at CSCC, who will reach out to you directly with an invitation and further event details.
Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to provide your valuable insight to future paralegals - contact Miranda L. West at Miranda.West@Dinsmore.com today!
