Finishing the Paralegal E-Discovery program has been a tremendous improvement in my life. When I started the program I decided to volunteer for a court in Yellow County. I wasn’t making an incredible amount of money, but I was at least working in the field I was studying. After I got my degree I looked for work for about 4 months, and then through my contacts, I had made through volunteering for the court I ended up getting a recommendation for the San Francisco District Attorney’s office, and now I’m an Asset Forfeiture Paralegal.
I got a job in an office thinking that a stable 9-5 job would be great. I soon discovered that I hated sitting in a cubicle all day! After almost exactly four years, I got laid off. Even though it was difficult financially, it was a blessing in disguise. I began searching for a career that would allow me to work in health and fitness, but the skills I had did not fit for the career I was pursuing.
One thing that can make a collegiate career smoother to navigate is the development of meaningful relationships. Establishing relationships help us develop social competency as students and can help us feel better connected to the educational community overall. No one should go through this journey feeling as if they are alone.
