Symplicity is an online recruiting system that you can use to manage your career search. It is accessible 24/7. You will be able to view and apply for positions with employers who contact the Office of Career & Student Development with an interest in hiring Elon Law Students.

The Symplicity system allows you to create a profile, store documents, apply and search for jobs, and participate in on-campus interviews and resume collections.

Symplicity becomes available for 1L students October 15th. We offer a 1L Symplicity Training Session and provide first-year students with a user name and password in early October.
