Florida Coastal has an extensive network of alumni working all across the country in traditional and alternative legal careers. Our alumni are a valuable resource that students often overlook. As the holiday break approaches, now is the perfect time to start reaching out to alumni and scheduling informational interviews in your hometown. Informational interviews will provide you with unique insight into specific practice areas, alternative careers, and/or what it’s like to work in a particular city or region. They also allow you to establish professional connections that just might lead to an employment opportunity.
We work closely with the Alumni Relations Office to maintain contacts with our alumni. These alumni have been in your shoes and they can answer your questions about the advantages and challenges of pursuing a legal career. If you are interested in connecting with a Coastal alum who is working in an area of the law that interests you, send an email to Lauren Griffith, Alumni Relations Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org to assist you with locating and contacting alumni.
