Library Journal - Library Journal
A practical, no-nonsense primer filled with ``hot tips,'' checklists, and sample forms, this book offers a treasure chest of valuable advice on how to join the fast-growing paralegal profession. Differing from most other authors in the field, who concentrate on the knowledge and skills needed by a paralegal, Wagner assumes the reader is qualified for a legal assistant position, although she includes a short chapter on paralegal schools. Her focus is on how to find, interview for, and be hired for that position. Thus, she offers detailed reviews on ``crafting winning resumes,'' writing strong cover letters, employing effective job search strategies, and ``selling yourself'' through the interview process. The list of ``questions to ask the interviewer'' and suggestions for answering difficult or inappropriate questions are especially helpful. Appendixes list paralegal schools and associations nationwide. Highly recommended for most public libraries.-- Frank G. Houdek, Southern Illinois Univ. Law Lib., Carbondale
