Career Services Myths and Realities

A reader who is currently writing an article on the subject is looking for your help:

I would love to hear from law students who have had positive experiences with their Career Services Office, address the following questions:
  1. What are the biggest misconceptions and/or complaints that law students have about their Career Services Office and/or the job search in general?
  2. What is the reality behind these misconceptions? To what extent do these complaints have any merit?
  3. What can law students do to make the best use of their CSO's resources and counselors, and conduct an effective job search?

If you've had positive experiences with your CSO, please share! And if you haven't, your responses to these questions could still be helpful (and definitely interesting)—especially the last one about how to make your CSO work for you. The floor, as usual, is completely open.

I have to say that I may be biased because I worked with Jeff this summer, but I can honestly recommend his book if you really feel the need for some advice on how not to go mad and understand some questions you might feel afraid to ask of your classmates or profs.

His other books are available here:
