Assistant Director, Evening Student Advising - Office of Career Strategy - Georgetown University Law Center

At Georgetown Law’s Office of Career Strategy (OCS), we aim to promote long-term success and thoughtful, deliberate career paths to more than 1800 law students and thousands of alumni. OCS Advisors work with students to create their unique career plan, tailored to their specific needs and interests. Along the way, we provide many workshops, resources, and recruitment programs. We are committed to innovating and improving upon our own strategies for success to ensure that Georgetown Law graduates continue to be the most prepared and best equipped in the nation.

Job Overview

The Assistant Director for Evening Student Advising has three primary responsibilities:

  • Advising, creating resources for, and providing programming to students in Georgetown Law’s Evening Program (approximately 200 students across four class years who typically work during the day and take law school classes in the evenings; this curriculum structure extends the traditional law school education from three years to four)
  • Maintaining a focus on and being a dedicated advising resource to students interested in a career that may span both the public and private sectors
  • Maintaining a focus on and dedicating resources to developing interview skills for all students - not just those in the evening division (for example, conducting mock interviews and presenting Interview Workshops)

At the direction of the Directors of both the 1L and 2L/3L Teams, they counsel students on basic job search skills (e.g., resume and cover letter creation), differentiating between and applying to legal employers, honing interviewing techniques, and developing a career plan.

Work Interactions

Reporting directly to the Directors of both the 1L and 2L/3L Teams, and working closely with all OCS staff, the Assistant Director for Evening Student Advising has significant contact with employers, alumni, and other administrative staff in the Law Center.

One of the primary goals of OCS is to ensure that every student receives individualized career planning and job search advice throughout their time at Georgetown. As a member of both the 1L and 2L/3L Teams of advisors, the Assistant Director works with colleagues to create strategies, programming, and resources for students navigating law school and conducting a job search.

Further, they work closely with counterparts in our sister office OPICS (the Office of Public Interest and Community Service) to develop resources dedicated not just to careers in the public or private sector, but to careers dedicated to both. Evening students often have significant prior work experience in either the public or private sector and are using law school as an opportunity to pivot and explore other options. We feel strongly that these students should be provided focused services that meet them where they are.


  • J.D. or other advanced degree in a related field – for example, MBA or Masters in Counseling
  • At least 2 years of legal experience and/or prior counseling background and/or experience working with law students or in a law school career services office
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills; demonstrated interpersonal skills; and team approach to problem solving
  • Strong attention to detail with ability to handle multiple tasks effectively

Preferred qualifications

  • A strong preference for work experience in the private sector
  • Familiarity and comfort with resource and program development

Individuals from underrepresented backgrounds encouraged to apply.
