The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Ohio legal secretary Denise Radovick didn’t stay in bed feeling sorry for herself when she was laid off from her job as a paralegal office manager in October 2008. Instead, she got up early every morning and devoted herself to a full-time job search.
“Your job is to find a job when you don’t have a job, and I was spending at least 40 hours a week job hunting,” said Radovick, 56.
She believes that persistence, flexibility, staying “linked in”, making good use of your time and staying busy are crucial when you are unemployed.
A graduate of the Cleveland Academy of Court Reporting, she has landed a new job as a legal secretary at Weltman, Weinberg and Reis Co., L.P.A, which specializes in collection services. While admitting her new commute to Cleveland is a challenge, she is excited about her new job responsibilities.
Check out Denise’s very professional videotaped interview about her layoff and job search at Cleveland.com. She says that she also attended networking groups and accepted part-time employment while searching for a full-time job.
