Recent grad lands job through Jayhawk Facebook connection

Posted on Sep 19, 2020 in News

Jessica Guardiola is the former SALB President of the Student Alumni Network. Take a sneak peek at how Guardiola, c’20, used familiar Jayhawk connections to land a job after graduating from KU.

Where did plans take you after your time on the Hill?
I moved to Washington, D.C. in August, after graduating from KU in May 2020. I decided to make an introductory post on the D.C. Jayhawks Facebook page to talk a little bit about myself and see if anyone could offer advice on the job search.

What connections did you make through the D.C. Jayhawks Facebook page?
Deb Roby, b’93, commented on my post and referred me to one of her colleagues at a legal staffing agency. I reached out to her colleague via email.

Nice! How did that go?
It just so happened the company had a new job opening that day and they thought I would be a perfect fit. I had several interviews with Mayer Brown before they extended me the position through the legal staffing agency.
