Book Description

Paralegal programs are great to teach you the basics -- how to write, how to analyze, different areas of law, etc. -- but they limit your exposure to what happens next. Sure, a career advisor will spend 1-2 days explaining how to format your resume, how to draft a cover letter and how you can go to them to critique it and get help with your job search, But think about it –- you were just in a class with at least 20-30 other aspiring paralegals who learned the same things you did.

Most job-hunting guides have the same problem. Because they are intended as a general, how-to guide on finding a job, the majority give you a one-size-fits-all approach that may or may not work for you.

The way to get an edge is to make yourself stand out. But how?

Whether you’re a new paralegal looking for your first job, or a more experienced paralegal looking for a new direction for your paralegal career, there is something in this book for you! Learn:

Properly follow up after the interview;
Choose from multiple job offers; and,
Ensure you made the right choice.

Book Excerpt:

Most job hunting books start out giving you tips and tricks on how to contact people and companies, how to interview, etc. Most of it is good advice, but all of it is fairly standard.

I hate to say it, but if you’re just starting out, the people in your paralegal program -- not to mention all the graduates from other paralegal programs -- will be reading the same books and following the same advice.

So I’m going to propose something a little different. BEFORE you start with your job search, take some time to figure out what you really want, and make a plan.

Not sure what your plan should be? No problem, I have the answer.
