Classing Ranking at Cardozo for 70K- 80K yr salary
« on: March 14, 2008, 02:55:01 AM »
Any Cardozo students/grads know how well I have to do to get a job that pays that much??
Also, are government jobs easier to get?

Thanks.

unfortunately, private sector jobs that pay this amount in ny are very few and far between...  on one hand, you have the 160k firms where you'll need top 10 percent to have a great shot from cardozo...   on other hand, you have govt positions which generally pay mid 50s in ny for those in the top half and have commitment to public service..

however, many midsize / small firms do post job openings in the spring that are in this range, but the competition is fierce since everyone that was shut out of biglaw is going for em, and these firms likely only have 1 or 2 openings per summer and are advertising at many schools..

What he said.  You might want to look for a job in another field for a sure 70k a year unless you're top 20%
