Please come out to the event to support Harvard BLSA! The 1L Job Fair is a signature event for the organization, and our firm sponsors are expecting to see BLSA members in attendance. Stop by and chat with your summer/future employer. Volunteer to help. Grab some firm swag. Be around to offer last-minute tips to 1Ls. Plus, it’s never too late to speak with recruiters about any possible openings for the summer class.
We look forward to seeing you all at the December Fair! Please spread the word to your friends, including those who are not HBLSA members. If you have questions, please email Lauren Moore, Chequan Lewis and Ieshaah Murphy at HBLSAProfessionalDevelopment@gmail.com.
