For Job Seekers
Hofstra Law students and alumni have access to Symplicity, an online career services management system. Symplicity can be used to:
- Upload resumes, cover letters, transcripts, writing samples and other job application documents
- View and apply to hundreds of postings for internships, externships and post-graduate employment opportunities
To access Symplicity:
Log on to the Hofstra Portal at my.hofstra.edu.
Once you are in the Portal, click on “My Apps” and then “Law Career Management System.”
If you do not know or cannot remember your username or password for the Hofstra Portal, please contact the Office of Career Services at (516) 463-5871 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Posting your internship or job openings on Symplicity is an effective way to promote your opportunities to the broadest range of our students and alumni. Employers can post part-time, summer, postgraduate and lateral opportunities at any time. Employers are also invited to offer externship opportunities to students for credit. Employers must be approved for the externship program by Franca Sachs, Assistant Dean for Experiential Education.
Employers have the option of posting their openings directly on Symplicity or submitting their postings to the Office of Career Services and having us take care of the posting. You can also have the applications accumulate and allow the OCS submit them to you as a package.
To post a job on Symplicity, sign in or create an account. [Note that if you are already in our system, you may need to reset your password.] If you have any questions regarding logging-in or posting a job, please contact us at (516) 463-5871 or email@example.com.
If you would prefer the Office of Career Services handle the posting for you, please complete and return to us our Job Posting Request Form (DOC) and Statement of Non-Discrimination (DOC). These documents can be returned via fax to (516) 463-7351 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
