Getting a Paralegal/Legal Assistant Job

Postby Mile High Miracle » Wed Nov 27, 2013 2:07 pm

Straight from undergrad. Any advice? Can you just mass email firms in your area? Are these positions very difficult to get even with a good GPA?

Paralegal here. What kind of PL are you looking for? I applied through my school's employment site, but I think Biglaw tends to hire mostly from top undergraduate schools (surprised?).

If you are set on a specific location, check to see if it has an active Legal Assistants Association. I payed $25 for a membership, and I received their job posting emails once a week.
