LLM Interview Program

I think that one great thing about Loyola is the resources. Back in December, I received an email about the LLM Interview Program, linking me (and all LLM students) to a website with an extensive list of employers and job opportunities. Since it was during finals, I skimmed the email and forgot about it entirely until early January, when I checked my email again, and found five reminder emails. 

Now, I won’t go into too much detail on the process, but I submitted my resume to five companies, and ended up with an interview! Now, I want to add that after being selected for an interview, a candidate has a deadline to accept the interview. I put it off until the last day (I had reasons, I promise! I am a procrastinator, but this time procrastination was not to blame), and, in what I personally consider a testament to Loyola, I ended up getting a call around noon the day of the deadline. I, of course, did not pick up, because while I am pretty much glued to my phone most days, I somehow manage to never pick up any phone calls. I was left a nice voicemail though, and it turned out that it was Career Services calling me to remind me to accept the interview if I wanted to, and to give them a call back.

Anyway, I guess what I want to say is that Loyola helped me, because I now know exactly what I’ll be doing this summer (I just heard back this afternoon!!!!).
