When it comes to career preparation, it’s hard to overestimate the importance of interpersonal skills and making connections with your peers, alumni, and potential employers. Anywhere from 60-80% of jobs are found through connections, so it’s vital that you learn this important skill before you start your job search.

One of the best ways to learn about career possibilities, professional expectations, making decisions (and whatever additional questions you might develop) is to speak to professionals who are willing to share their insights. University alumni are a fantastic resource for career-related conversations and these networks exist to help Judges connect. Join our LinkedIn group to get a jump start!
