Post-Cleary Gottlieb Career Opportunities
"You have so many alternatives and possibilities at Cleary Gottlieb that you can write your career plan as you go along."
— Mary Watson, Director of Professional Development
We understand that a law firm job can provide the training that springboards you to a career in an entirely different field — from academia to investment banking to not-for-profit work.
We'll talk openly with you about the possibilities inside and outside Cleary Gottlieb, and we'll do more than help you assess your options — we'll help you reach your goals.
If the path you choose points to a long-term career at Cleary Gottlieb, we'll provide the training and mentoring to make you a strong candidate for senior attorney, counsel or partner.
If you decide to look outside Cleary Gottlieb, we'll help you build a resume that can lead to the right opportunity. What's more, we have an impressive network of alumni and clients, who regularly call us to fill positions in their organizations.
In short, we are looking for attorneys who can excel in the law as well as in business, academia, government service and beyond. That's why for more than 65 years, Cleary Gottlieb has been known for developing excellent lawyers and excellent leaders.
