OCS Student Spotlight - Kathryn Cantu

How did you get your job?

I was very fortunate to have found my job through a series of connecting and networking with St. Mary’s Law Alumni. I started with a cold-open email to an attorney in my hometown that led to her introducing me to one of her law school friends who worked in San Antonio. After connecting with the San Antonio attorney and discovering her firm had already filled its summer positions, she asked for my resume, sent it to a colleague, and I ended up with an interview at my current firm. Now I am happy to say that I have gained three wonderful mentors through this process along with tons of experience!

What did you like most about your job?

I love all the hands-on experience I have gained! Whether it was drafting court documents, conducting legal research, or preparing legal memorandums – I always felt like I was learning something new. I also appreciated that the partners and associates took time with me to provide feedback on my work product and teach me about the procedures in this area of the law. Each member of the firm was welcoming, and I thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity working for Mr. Cappuccio.
