Job Listings

Job listings for students and graduates are often received daily and posted online via Symplicity. Positions include local, regional and nationwide listings with government agencies, courts, law firms and public interest employers.

Recruiting Programs

Each year, employers participate in UNM Fall and Spring Recruiting, and interview students either on- or off-campus. These employers represent law firms, government agencies and public interest entities nationwide. UNM Law Fall and Spring Recruiting are run entirely through Symplicity.

Job Fairs

Career Services participates in specialty practice, minority, public interest and government job fairs nationwide. Please note that each job fair requires its own separate log-in information and may be managed through other organizations’ Symplicity sites.

UNM Law Advisor Directory

The Alumni Advisor Directory is a compilation of UNM Law alumni and friends who affirmatively volunteered to speak with students and fellow graduates about career issues. (You should ask these lawyers for advice, not simply employment.) To access the UNM Law Advisor Directory on Symplicity, after logging on, click on the “Networking” tab. You can then search the Directory by geographic area, practice area, or alphabetically.

Customized Professional Profile and Calendar

Students maintain a customized professional profile on Symplicity, which allows Career Services to better advise them regarding recruiting events and prospective employers. Also, students may use Symplicity’s calendar feature to manage their time and interview schedules.
