Ann is giving three new/entry-level or unemployed paralegals one year of monthly one-on-one coaching calls to help them with whatever they need to advance their paralegal career, such as:

  • Insider advice on how to handle difficult attorneys (or difficult colleagues!)
  • Help to find a job and help with your resume, interview prep, etc.
  • Coaching on how to deal with office stuff that you feel like you don’t have anyone to talk to
  • How to ask for a raise
  • However you want to spend your alloted time each month!

Sign up for a chance to win free coaching calls with Ann.

In return, Ann hopes that the three paralegals who win the coaching calls will then pay it forward to three other paralegals. #ParalegalsPayingItForwardToParalegals!
