Career Strategies Office Policies
In accordance with the policy of Drexel University, the Career Strategies Office prohibits discrimination against individuals on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, status as a veteran or special disabled veteran or gender identity and expression. The facilities and programs sponsored by the Career Strategies Office are available only to employers whose practices are consistent and in agreement with this policy.
Students and Alumni Seeking Reciprocity
Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law alumni and students seeking employment in another region may request that the Career Strategies Office send a letter of introduction to a law school career services office in another city or region. This arrangement enables a student to access the services or job listings at another school for a designated period of time. Each school maintains its own policies and limitations on access to its career services office, and most schools have blackout dates during peak periods when reciprocity is not available.
The Career Strategies Office requests reciprocity on behalf of students and alumni. Students and alumni should not request reciprocity directly from another law school. When requesting a reciprocal visit to a particular city or region, please provide us with the names of three law schools ranked in order of preference.
Students and Alumni from Other Law Schools Seeking Reciprocity
Reciprocity is available to students and alumni of other law schools on a case-by-case basis. All requests for reciprocity must be submitted in writing to the Drexel University Kline School of Law Career Strategies Office through the career services office of the reciprocity seeker’s school. No direct requests from students or alumni of other law schools will be honored. The Kline School of Law will not entertain reciprocity requests between July 1 and Nov. 1 and other peak times as designated by the CSO.
For all reciprocity requests, email Amanda Young.
Grievance Process for Student Complaints Concerning Employer Practices
Students are strongly encouraged to notify either the Associate Dean of the Career Strategies Office or the Senior Associate Dean of Students of any and all improper recruiting practices or inappropriate interviewing conduct as soon as possible after the incident in question.
Step 1: Email, call, or schedule an appointment to speak with the Associate Dean of the Career Strategies Office or the Senior Associate Dean of Students. Specify clearly that you wish to voice a complaint about an employer’s recruiting or interviewing practices, or work environment.
Step 2: Meet with the Associate Dean of the Career Strategies Office or the Senior Associate Dean of Students, either in person or by telephone.
Step 3: Identify “next steps.” Based on the totality of the circumstances, including but not limited to the nature of the incident, the Drexel University Office of Equality & Diversity will be notified per University Policies OED-1 and OED-3.
Students may skip Steps 1 and 2 and contact the Office of Equality & Diversity or the EEOC. We always encourage students to address issues however they choose to report.
