Book: “Real Resumes for Legal and Paralegal Jobs”

By January 13, 2007Books, Job searches

Got an email with recommendations from Amazon today. I haven’t read this book yet, but it sure sounds helpful for landing government jobs:

"Those who seek legal and paralegal jobs will find this book to be a rich resource. No matter what type of legal or paralegal work is sought, the reader will find outstanding samples of resumes and covers used by real people to obtain legal and paralegal jobs. Resumes and covers letters are included which will help newly minted lawyers or paralegals find their first jobs in their field. There are also sample resumes and cover letters which will be useful to the most experienced lawyers and paralegals in the profession. A ‘bonus’ of this book is that it includes samples of paperwork involved in getting federal government jobs: specialized resumes and the federal ‘resumix‘ as well as the write-ups for the Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSAs) which are often required for government positions. This book will show legal-industry professionals how to maximize their career potential, get federal positions, and change fields if they want to."
