AABANY is pleased to announce the formation of its new Career Placement Committee. The primary purpose of the Career Placement Committee is to match qualified AABANY members with available legal job positions. To accomplish this, the Career Placement Committee is launching the AABANY Career Exchange which will serve as a clearinghouse for all legal positions brought to its attention and will proactively seek to match qualified AABANY candidates with such open positions. To this end, the Career Placement Committee is actively seeking information regarding open legal positions. If you are aware of any such positions please email the Career Placement Committee co-chairs (Robert Leung, Michael Park and Gurinder Singh) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, the Career Placement Committee is also interested in getting to know AABANY members who are currently seeking or considering seeking a new position. It is important for the Career Placement Committee to understand the skill sets, special expertise and interests of AABANY members currently conducting or thinking about a job search in order to be able to best match qualified candidates with particular open positions. To facilitate the process, the Career Placement Committee will kickoff the AABANY Career Exchange by holding 15-minute informational one-on-one meetings with interested AABANY members at the AABANY 2013 Fall Conference / NAPABA Northeast Regional Conference on September 21, 2013 (www.napaba-ne.aabany.org ). Feel free to bring a resume. All questions and inquiries will be kept strictly confidential.
Finally, if you are interested in getting involved in the Career Placement Committee, please let us know. We are currently actively seeking 5-10 committee members to assist with our current and future projects. Please email us at email@example.com.
If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact the Career Placement Committee co-chairs: Robert Leung, Michael Park or Gurinder Singh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
