Services to Employers

One of our most important jobs is to facilitate your recruitment efforts. Each fall, employers from nearly 300 offices come to Vanderbilt's campus to participate in our on-campus interviews.

In addition to on-campus interviews, more than 500 legal employers solicit letters of interest and resumes from our students. We also publish a Recruitment Handbook, which features photographs and profiles of our second- and third-year students.

We invite you to participate in our on-campus interviews and see why Vanderbilt students stand out because of their excellent legal training combined with their leadership, communication and social skills.

On-Campus Recruiting

Each fall, employers have the opportunity to conduct on-campus interviews with second- and third-year students interested in serving as summer associates or in entry-level positions. On-Campus recruitment of 2Ls and 3Ls can be arranged any time classes are in session.
