Paralegals start job bank service
Most law firms, when filling paralegal positions, use newspaper advertisements as their first resource. Now there is another staffing resource at your fingertips, available free of charge.
The Alaska Association of Legal Assistants (AALA) maintains a job bank for its members. AALA members seeking employment submit their resumes to the job bank. These resumes are available to law firms during your hiring process.
To access the job bank, call the AALA coordinator, Deb Jones, at 1-907-787-8993. You can either ask for copies of the resumes on file, or you can ask that AALA let its members know your firm is currently hiring. If you prefer the latter alternative, all you need do is provide the same information as you would in an ad: Who to contact, nature of the position, deadline, and other pertinent information.
