CLAS Program: Cover Letters and Application Service

The Career Development Office wants all students and alumni to succeed in finding a fulfilling position both during law school or following graduation. The first step towards accomplishing the same is to have a powerful resume that effectively highlights your qualifications. To help to achieve this, the CDO has initiated a Cover Letter & Application Service (CLAS). Before you are able to apply for a position or post your resume on the AJMLS Symplicity system, your initial resume must be approved by the Career Development Office. To request a resume or cover letter review, please email your request and a copy of your resume and/or cover letter to your individual career counselor. Please tell us the type of employment you are seeking. Our office is compatible with Microsoft Office 2007 and earlier editions; please ensure your resume is submitted in an electronic EDITABLE format such as Word (*.doc) or WordPerfect (*.wpd) format. You will receive an email confirming our receipt of your request. Comments and recommendations are typically provided within 4-5 business days from the date we received the request. Prior to submitting your resume, you may find it helpful to check out the resume workshop outline and cover letter format.
