Your Actionable Strategy

  1. Be prepared now to be able to take advantage when that opportunity opens up.
  2. Don’t leave your career to chance. Set career goals and make them happen, rather than hoping something comes your way.
  3. Listen to the podcast episode on going from receptionist to firm-wide director.

    I would like to discuss how to become a remote paralegal by contract. I will be an entry level paralegal, but I also have a bchelors degree, and Im getting a paralegal certificate soon. What are your thoughts on this? I live in Iowa where I can legally work on my own as a paralegal. Its not as strict as California.

      I’m not familiar with the requirements in Iowa. I would recommend doing some research online to see what the requirements are. Check with your state bar association and your local paralegal association.
