Law firms not hiring or just need a change? Think outside the box…

If you are having a hard time getting your foot in the door or are looking to get out of a traditional law firm environment – think outside the box! Did you know that many “regular” companies hire paralegals and other legal support staff? If you are limiting your job search to local law firms, you might be missing out on fantastic opportunities.

To give you some ideas, here is a list of 11 South Florida companies that hire paralegals (and other legal support staff). This does not mean they have a position open TODAY, but it is meant to give you an idea of other places to look for open positions. This is just a very short list, there are many other companies out there.

  • Burger King Corp.
  • Baptist Health
  • Carnival Cruiselines
  • Royal Caribbean Cruiselines
  • HBO Latin America
  • SE Toyota Distributors
  • Columbus Networks
  • TelMex USA
  • Bacardi USA
  • Ocean Bank
  • Rendina Companies

I recently asked a group of paralegals who did NOT work in a traditional law firm to let us know what industry they worked in and what their jobs entailed. This list should give you some ideas to help you expand your search and hopefully open up other opportunities for you.
