Practical Paralegalism’s Recommended Reading This Week

I blog for paralegals to share information they might find helpful for professional development (or a much needed laugh during a hectic week working with lawyers). Once a week I share links to a half dozen or so articles focusing on legal news and humor, practice tips and technology.

Here’s this week’s list:

“Facebook Friending Around the Office” (Lawyerist) – I’m friends with my boss on Facebook (but it poses little risk as he rarely uses it). Once I congratulated another one of the partners on his daughter’s brand new engagement over the weekend, and he asked me how I knew. “I saw the ring and status update on Facebook.” Duh.

“There’s an app for that…” (Frugal Paralegal) Margaret avoids monthly data plan fees by using an iPod touch to run those cool free iPhone apps.

“15 Deadly But Often-Made Resume Blunders to Avoid” (ResumeBear) – So you think nobody in the legal profession would make these mistakes? I see piles of resumes every year. Think again.
