The latest edition of The Paralegal Voice, “Paralegal Resume 101: How to Stand Out from the Competition,” co-hosted by Vicki Voisin and me, is now available at Legal Talk Network.
Is your resume up to par? Will it rise to the top in a stack of other paralegals’ applications? On this edition, Vicki and I present a 101 course about paralegal resumes. We share our own experiences preparing and reviewing resumes, offer suggestions for handling the “no experience” issue for newcomers to the field, discuss the recommended formats for paralegal resumes, and provide tips to distinguish yourself from the pack of competitors for every job.
Also in this episode:
- Golden Rules for resumes
- The hosts’ resume pet peeves
- Resume resources
- LinkedIn tips
- Vicki’s practice tip and Lynne’s social media tip
