Timothy O'Hara '96, president and CEO of The Ayco Company, L.P., a Goldman Sachs Company, was the first guest for the Career Center's new Professional Development Series, launched this semester as another way to help prepare students for fulfilling careers.
O'Hara's session on "Making Yourself into a Dream Candidate" covered such topics as nontraditional legal career paths, the importance of networking, and the hiring cycles of disparate employers.
Future Professional Development Series sessions will focus on themes such as experiential opportunities within the law school, social media, and professionalism and cultural competency, as well as on various fields in which law school graduates can work.
The first Professional Development Series session was held Tuesday, Aug. 19, at 4:00 in Room 200.
Students who attend 15 of the 21 sessions obtain a Professionalism Development Series completion notation on their transcript.
