This just in:
After careful consideration and to better reflect the services and resources we provide to our students and alumni, we are pleased to announce that the Career Planning Center is now called the Career Development Office (CDO). The role of law school career offices throughout the country, including our office, has considerably changed in the last decade. Career offices have expanded their role by giving students and alumni lifelong services that not only help the students and alumni identify and use the appropriate resources to obtain their first jobs but also help them assess and discover their ideal careers. We feel that the new name accurately represents this progressive change and ask you to join us in using the name and sharing it with others in our community. Also, please note our new website address: www.law.miami.edu/cdo.
I'm not a big believer in name changes. On the other hand, I am pleased to see that the whatever-you-call-it has adopted a suggestion of mine and resumed making business cards available to students:
Student Business Cards are Here!
The Career Development Office is pleased to offer business cards to current students. For more information please click here.
And I think business card style option “B” looks pretty good.
As re-branding goes, the name change could be a lot worse. At least it isn’t the 1-800-4-Placement Center or the PIzza Hut Career Center or something!
