CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’RE A LAW GRADUATE NOW WHAT?
Choosing your profession can be one of most crucial decisions you will make in your lifetime. You have done your research and have chosen to work as a Paralegal or work in a law office. Getting your certification and degree is time consuming.
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. The information is generic and the same information is passed on to many students.
Most job-hunting guides have the same problem. Because they are intended as a general, how-to guide on finding a job, the majority gives you a one-size-fits-all approach that may or may not work for you. You need to find a book that has all the information in one place.
A book that was written by someone who is a paralegal, that’s been in the trenches and can give you the tools on how to stand out against your competition.

For instance, with the way the economy has been, I wanted a way to use my skills in several different ways. I’ve been a paralegal for several years, and I’ve done the whole job hunting thing many times over, sending out resumes, preparing cover letters and interviewing. I’ve done the same thing so many times, that I could do it my sleep. Despite that fact, I still regularly review job hunting and entrepreneurship books to see if I can learn anything new to better help the people I work with.
Nevertheless, books are only a starting point. Even reading 100 different books will only take me so far, since the books will provide a good general outline of what to expect and I have to go from there. A certain part of the experience comes from the choices made along the way. Part of the experience is shaped by circumstances that are out of your control.
