Best Careers for Hipsters

Career #2 - Paralegal

Okay, we know what you're thinking: "Paralegal? A hipster career?" But bear in mind that according to the U.S. Department of Labor, paralegals often help prepare legal arguments with attorneys. And we all know how creative some of those can sometimes get.

Why it's for Hipsters: "Being able to think about legal problems from a different perspective or in new ways would probably be a great asset for a paralegal," says Anthony. "So even though it involves a lot of research, this career could be appealing to a creative person."

In addition to investigating the facts of a case, paralegals get affidavits, write reports to help lawyers prepare for trials, and even assist lawyers during trials, says the Department of Labor. Add in a fancy suit and tie, and this could be a pretty hip career.

Education Options: According to the Department, there are a few paths to pursuing a paralegal career. One is to earn an associate's degree in paralegal studies. And for those who already have a bachelor's degree in another subject, completing a certification program in paralegal studies is another option.

It seems like they come out with a new "news story" every week about the best jobs for X, and then cycle through the same 5-10 jobs every time (using the exact same stock images).

I dare a creative paralegal to get creative with interpreting the law. Double dare.

Nothing brightens up my day more than reading a Chris Chase article and watch as everyone in the comment section flame him to death.

God I thought I was the only one.

Its funny cause people keep wondering why Yahoo keeps him when he single handedly generates more traffic to Yahoo than probably entire Yahoo sites

"good job for a hipster" =/= "cool" by any stretch of the imagination.

As long as they don't break a hip fetching my coffee and serving as my footstool when I need backsupport, I don't mind them. They're plenty "hip" with me.
