New Leader for Career Services Office
Bringing two decades of experience in higher education, placement and executive recruiting to his new post, Don Rieley has been named Pitt Law’s new director of career services. Rieley describes his primary tasks as “alumni and employer outreach, looking all around the mid-Atlantic region. We’ll certainly collaborate on utilizing resources to facilitate helping students — in the building, at the University and beyond.”
In addition to 13 years in administration at Virginia Tech, where he earned his undergraduate and M.B.A. degrees, Rieley was most recently a consultant for higher education and marketing clients with the Gerson Lehman Group in New York City. Don’s priorities include increasing the number of employers who either recruit at the Law School or otherwise consider Pitt Law students for positions, increasing the level of student engagement with CSO and participation in its offerings, and employing innovative approaches to help students develop effective job search strategies.
