Product Description

Written by authors with extensive experience in placing paralegal students in successful internships and permanent jobs, Internships through Employment: The Paralegal Job Hunter's Handbook is the only text in the field to focus on internships and permanent employment.

Divided into three sections — internships, finding the right permanent job, and ensuring success in the workplace — this concise handbook offers:

Practical information with a variety of samples including cover and thank-you letters, sample resumes, and sample job-hunting portfolio pages;
Valuable advice not covered elsewhere, such as how to quit a job without burning bridges, how to interview by telephone, how to get around the “no reference” rule, how to respond to online job postings, as well as realistic advice on inappropriate workplace behaviors and ethical concerns.
