Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law students have a fresh resource to help in the tough task of finding a job – new Assistant Director of Career Services Mercedes Pino.

Pino, a 2002 Stetson Law graduate, worked in the Career Services Office while a Stetson student. Before returning to the College of Law, Pino worked as an assistant state attorney in the 11th Circuit’s domestic violence unit. She remains a member of the Florida Bar.

“I am thrilled that Mercedes has joined the Career Services Office staff,” said Catherine Fitch, director of career services. “Her knowledge of the South Florida legal market will be invaluable to our placement efforts.”

Pino will assist students with resume and cover letter preparation and discuss general matters relating to their job searches while in school and following graduation.

While attending the College of Law, Pino served Stetson as Chief Ambassador, and as a member and officer in several student organizations. She received the prestigious Dean’s Award at graduation.
