Written by authors with extensive experience in placing paralegal students in successful internships and permanent jobs, Internships through Employment: The Paralegal Job Hunter's Handbook is the only text in the field to focus on internships and permanent employment.

Divided into three sections — internships, finding the right permanent job, and ensuring success in the workplace — this concise handbook offers:

practical information with a variety of samples including cover and thank-you letters, sample resumes, and sample job-hunting portfolio pages
valuable advice not covered elsewhere, such as how to quit a job without burning bridges, how to interview by telephone, how to get around the “no reference” rule, how to respond to online job postings, as well as realistic advice on inappropriate workplace behaviors and ethical concerns
• a readable, accessible style

Bouchoux and Sullivan, both with wide-ranging practical and teaching experience, have designed this outstanding text to be useful as a coursebook as well as a handbook:

• each chapter includes Web references, ethics tips, discussion questions, and sample assignments
extensive appendices include job hunting resources, sample resumes, sample cover letters and other types of correspondence, and paralegal resources to help job hunters

This book is part of a comprehensive teaching package that includes PowerPoint slides and an extensive Instructor’s Manual featuring:

• sample syllabi
• Internship Timelines: What To Do When in Your Internship Program
• suggestions for in-class activities and projects for each chapter
• answers to discussion questions and Web Work questions
