Hunting the Unicorn: The Search for an Entry Level Position

In the two weeks since the end of classes, I have been busy looking for employment in my most recent chosen field. I have not had much luck this time around either.

My first time around was after I completed an Associate in Accounting. Jobs that should have been entry-level were being offered, but the requirements were ridiculous. Jobs that required minimal accounting knowledge to do, because they were primarily clerical work, were requiring a Bachelors’ degree and/or experience.

This time around, I studied to become a paralegal because the program involved gaining practical experience as an intern. There was no pay, just college credit. Essentially, I paid for the privilege of working for an attorney. I thought that it would help to have this experience on my résumé. It has not.
