I want to reminder you to Save the Date for the upcoming annual Small Firm and Public Interest Expo.  It will be held in the Reynolds Alumni Center on Friday, February 28th from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm.  It is a drop-in event, come when it is convenient for your schedule.  I will warn you though, with around 50 to 60 different employers, you will want to spend the whole two hours networking with federal, state, public interest, and small firm employers!  Click on the tab “2014 Small Firm and Public Interest Expo” at the top of this blog for an updated list of who will be attending. Be sure and RSVP through Symplicity.
