Law school career services offices are responding to the anemic job market by adding a hire or two, paying more attention to markets outside their home turf, and serving up more tailored advice. The efforts are driven by growing demand from students as well as alumni, career professionals say.

At the moment, it is a one-year contract position focusing on one-on-one counseling for everyone from recent graduates to mid-career alumni, plus outreach to potential employers.
