Profiles in Vile Waste: Kristin Flierl, Director of “Career Services” at the University of Mississippi School of Law
CSO Director at the University of Mississippi Sewer of Law- It is Not My Job to Find You a Job:
"In lieu of jobs or career advice, career services offices are now offering children’s poetry to their students….
A tipster from the University of Mississippi School of Law was pretty peeved that the school’s director of career services sent out an email yesterday “to passive aggressively say that WE, the students, are the ones that have to do all the work to find a job.”
On October 17, 2011, Elie Mystal reported on this situation:
This is my final attempt to gather information about summer employment data from you. Between the two classes I received about 90 responses total. Thanks to all of those respondents! I would like to share this insight with you, though. “A little birdie” stopped by my office after I sent the last e-mail and informed me that there was some type of agreement among several of the 2L’s and 3L’s to refuse to supply this information in some form of protest against Career Services not “doing our job” — apparently misconstrued as “finding people jobs.” [Emphasis mine]

As you can see, the Director of “Career Services” at Ole Miss Sewer of Law is Kristin Flierl.

Call this old cow at home, late at night, and ask her if she can help you find a job. If you see fit, call from a pay phone and quote from your favorite Theodore Geisel book.
Accolades for the Old Hag:
“With a no-nonsense and realistic approach to the legal field, Kristin Flierl has earned the respect of law students who attend the University of Mississippi School of Law as well as the faculty and administration. She is dedicated, sincere and compassionate - and she pulls it off in the way only a true leader can.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, when you hear Kristin Flierl’s name, “dedication” and “compassionate” immediately come to mind, right?!?!
“Kristin Flierl has been on the job as the law school’s director of career services less than a year, but she’s already been named the school’s outstanding staff member for 2008-09. Flierl, who came to the law school in July 2008, brings more than 20 years of law placement experience to her new position.” [Emphasis mine]
According to the old bag, it is not her job to find employment for graduating law students. If she was named the sewer’s outstanding staff member, then how valuable are the other employees?! Then again, we are dealing with law school parasites. For $ome rea$on, in the article, Flierl sells her "skills":
"At UM, Flierl helps law students move from academia to the professional world by providing students with contacts, job listings, interview programs, mock interviews and advice on how to conduct a job search.
“In this economy, my main task is to scour the country for viable job opportunities,” Flierl said."
Conclusion: In the final analysis, this is further proof that law school pigs DO NOT GIVE ONE DAMN about the students or recent graduates. They seek to sell prospective students a bill of goods. The swine claim high employment placement rates. Yet, when you cannot find a job, suddenly this failure is solely YOUR fault. At that point, the cockroaches chirp, “Buyer beware.” By the way, you can stick those Dr. Seuss rhymes up your old, wrinkled, gray, decrepit ass, Kristin!
