So you have completed your training as a paralegal, but now you are in a quandary as to how to find gainful employment. Many students who have just gotten out of training are usually looking during the months of June, July and August. Unfortunately, so is everyone else. There are a number of options that you can try, but part of the process is being patient and getting your name out there for solicitors firms to notice.
About October/November, there are usually a lot more vacancies for paralegals again, but now the agencies can afford to be less fussy about experience.
Many places want someone who has experience in the field before they will hire them. So how does one get the experience if no one will give you a chance. It is a vicious cycle. One thing that you can do is volunteer to do some unpaid work to get the experience. The firm you provide the unpaid work may be interested in hiring you part time or full time depending on how many hours will be needed.
