The Nebraska State Bar Association (NSBA) now allows all Creighton law students to join for FREE. Among numerous other benefits, an NSBA membership allows you to make connections with attorneys across the state of Nebraska. The availability of practice area sections allows you to meet lawyers who are practicing in your areas of interest. We all know that networking is a crucial part of a job search. Joining the NSBA and taking advantage of that membership is a great way to begin that networking process. We have several copies of the membership guide and membership application in our office, or if you prefer, you can visit the NSBA website for more information and an application.
Don't forget that 2Ls and 3Ls can also join the Omaha Bar Association (OBA) for FREE. This is great way to connect with local attorneys in the Metro area. For more information and an application, visit the OBA website.
Note: if you are seeking outside of the Omaha metro area, be sure to investigate state and local bar association memberships in geographic areas where you want to work. Having that membership on your resume and taking advantage of networking opportunities can go a long way in an out-of-town job search. Don't forget that the CDO is here to help you with your job search. It's easy to schedule an appointment using Symplicity.
Don't forget to check the job postings on Symplicity regularly. Area employers often contact our office seeking Creighton Law students for school year, summer and entry-level positions.
When responding to specific job postings, always remember: to apply well in advance of any stated deadlines (often employers review resumes and conduct interviews on a rolling basis - offers may be made before the deadline) and tailor your cover letter specifically to qualities sought in the posting.
