 ALAMN DEIA Virtual Career Fair with Metro State University

Toward the goal of continued improvements in the diversification of our legal industry workforce, on January 23, 2024, ALAMN members Bernie Theis, Zhakalasky Carrion, Rebecca Doyle and Joey Monson spoke at a virtual presentation to Professor Loi Nguyen’s Metro State University students. The speakers provided information on their real-life legal career paths, the various components of compensation, and tried and true salary negotiation tips. The Metro State students were engaging and submitted inquisitive questions which the speakers responded to during the Q&A session at the end of their presentation. The ALAMN DEIA Team extends a hearty thank you to each of our speakers and a huge shout out to Bernie Theis for being the catalyst behind this successful maiden voyage into ALAMN DEIA Team’s virtual career presentation. The DEIA Team plans on doing several more virtual presentations in 2024 to college and, potentially, high school students.
