This Week’s Paralegal Mentor Tips

This Week’s Paralegal Mentor Tips

My goal is to provide professional development tips for paralegals, legal assistants, legal secretaries, and all legal support staff, as well as attorneys, paralegal students and educators.

I post daily Mentor Tips on Twitter and Facebook, and I also provide links to relevant articles on all things legal on this blog.

Every Thursday, I publish Paralegal Strategies, an online newsletter with paralegal news and comments, current events, profiles and feature articles. Go to www.paralegalmentor.com to get yours…and remember that new subscribers to Paralegal Strategies receive The Paralegal Mentor’s 151 Tips for Your Career Success.

Here are the Paralegal Mentor Tips for October 3-7, 2011:

Monday:  Don’t wait for a job to be assigned to you; instead, anticipate what must be done and do it.

Tuesday:  Doubt is a good thing. If you’re not 100% certain of the rule or statute, always verify.

Wednesday: Take the time to explore features of technology you use. It’s not evvicient to use only a fraction of what the software is capable of.

Thursday:
Always be open, flexible and willing to take on new tasks. You’ll be a team player and learn more in the process.


Friday: It’s Friday! Use Fridays as “follow-up” or “get ahead” days.

Use these tips to move your career in the right direction…forward!
