So I went back to school to get my paralegal certificate, unaware until halfway through the program of the near-impossibility of actually getting a paralegal job in this town.
Flash forward to today. I had a job interview yestrday through a placement service and was supposed to hear today. Didn’t hear anything so I called the agency. The agent tells me the interviewer told her that everything was great, he liked me a lot but he’s on the fence about hiring me because, with my paralegal certificate, he thinks I’ll get a paralegal job and quit. The agent puts me in the humiliating experience of explaining that I won’t quit to take a paralegal job because I can’t get a paralegal job.
Now that I’ve been humiliated I’m back to waiting to hear. Supposed to hear before 5:00 today but that obviously didn’t happen.
