CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’RE A PARALEGAL!
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 that learned the same things you did.
After all, the structure of the paralegal program has to be consistent for all of its students, from the courses they offer to the career advice they give at the end.
Plus, once you’ve completed the program, you’re no longer classmates. For the most part, you’re all competing for the same Law Firm jobs – along with past program graduates who may also be hunting for a job.
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?
