You've got to say, ''I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it.'' It's called perseverance.  ~~Lee Iacocca

Your Career

There is no shortage of career information and advice available on the Internet and through other resources.  This information and advice is usually prepared for a general audience and not always applicable to your specific area of interest, knowledge, background, education and career goal.  You must sort through this general information and decide what advice is relevant to you and your goals, and how you should implement that advice.  As a Paralegal Career Coach with over 25 years of law office experience and teaching in the paralegal field, I have the knowledge and expertise to help you focus on your specific goals and areas of interest to empower you to attain the job you are seeking.

 

Whether you are thinking about taking paralegal classes, currently taking paralegal classes, working as a paralegal, or needing assistance to evolve your legal career, I can help you to obtain the knowledge, skills and resources to advance your goal to find your ideal job.  I can help you identify your specific areas for improvement and knowledge about the profession. Finding the right job can take time, even when you are doing everything right--it is a multi-step process that requires evaluation and planning.
