I started my career, like many college graduates with an interest in law, as a paralegal. With few personal connections to firms in my college town of Boston and the threat of student loan repayments beginning to loom, I started looking for legal support work on Craigslist. A few emails later, I’d secured a couple of job interviews, and a couple weeks later, I started a full-time job as a paralegal in a firm handling Social Security disability casework.
