College grad in Briarcliff Manor, New York

Hello. I am currently a student at a University and will graduate with a degree in English this December. I am also currently doing an online paralegal course. I just wanted to get advice on how I can get started into legal field. I want to eventually enter law school by fall 2012, but first I would like to work in the legal field. I know I will have to first start out as a Case Assistant or File Clerk. Also I am going to school in New York and would like to find a job either in Georgia, North Carolina, or Virginia. Does anyone have any recommendations for me? Or any companies or law firm I should look into? Thank you for any information anyone can provide.

I completely understand the negative side of becoming an attorney but I am still willing to decide to pursue that field. I would go straight into law school because I haven't take my lsat yet so I won't be able to enter law school until 2012. In the meantime I would like to work. Thanks for your advice.
