"When interviewing for a position as a paralegal, you'll be evaluated for your critical thinking, organizational, and legal writing skills. Lawyers want paralegals who can excel in a fast-paced environment and are organized and efficient when conducting research for large legal cases. Expect to answer questions about your previous legal experience as well as your ability to prioritize tasks with competing deadlines."
What experience do you have that is directly related to this position?
Since my experience is in a different area of law I had to really think about this and emphasize my transferrable skills.
I interned in my father’s law firm for two years during college, learning how to do legal research and writing.
