Resource Review: PSJD

If you are interested in a Public Interest Career after law school, you should check out, which allows you to search posted jobs and employers and has many other resources available as well.

In order to search for jobs, you will want to click on the “Search Jobs & Employers” tab from the home page.  Doing a quick search for jobs in Missouri turned up 7 results and could not be more simple to navigate.  You are able to also search for jobs by when they are posted, when the application deadline is, whether it is full-time or an internship, etc.

In addition to the ability to search for job postings, you can also take advantage of their resource center, one which is a Public Sector Career Paths, which outline all of the different careers you can have within the umbrella of “public interest”.  If you aren’t sure yet what you want to do, this is a great way to begin brainstorming the possibilities that are out there for you.

Further, if you want an outside perspective on Cover Letters, Resumes and Interviewing, they have lots of samples and tips for each in an easy to navigate way, including webinars who like to learn through a more interactive format.

Also, I know many of you want to learn more information about how to finance your public interest career, and there is ample information regarding summer funding and post-graduate funding as well as how to have fun on the cheap.

Finally, PSJD runs a blog with a wealth of articles useful to students interested in public interest careers and internships.

Overall, this website has a wealth of information and should be a must-read for all students looking to establish their career in the Public Sector.
