Hello Fredrick:
I relocated myself. FIrst, I flew to the city and stayed in a hotel with easy access to business district. I came with a stack of resumes and cover letters, saying I am planning to move here, I am here now for next 3 weeks and HAND Delivered them to law offices. There were several building that hosted a lot of law firms , I got 2 interviews. ONe person said to contact them if I moved here- changes were going on and would be seeking new employees.

GOt home- and got call from one attorney in need of Paralegal. Flew back down and interviewed, got the job, and Offer of Employment. THEn I went hunting for a place to live - and moved there.

CHeck to see if your area has a legal newspaper with Classifed section for hiring ads, check to see if have a Paralegal Association.

truthfull, Frederick, It is hard to network with head hunters when you are not there yet. YOu may have to travel there and do what I did. Hand deliver- plus check if ythy have a local legal newspaper in Atlata. WHen you are in atlanta, answer the ad and hoepefuly will get and interview. A paralegal association in atlanta, you can at least e-mail committee people and network that way.

And if you join the Atlanta Paralegal Association, they should have a job bank, which you would have access to. LOts of the responses are by fax or e-mail only. SO you can get a feel by answering the job listings. Of course you will to have a local Atlanta address on resume, and Atlanta phone number, that can be set up via a cell phone.

If Atlanta has a Parlegal Association, Join. They will most likely have a job bank that you wuld have acces to as member. Ususaly you submit resume via e-mail address or fax. You will have to have a local Atlanta address and Atlanta telephone number on resume. The phone number can be set up via a cell phone. Good luck

Your information was really helpful. I will be moving to Atlanta in 1 month in search of a paralegal job. I have registered with Robert Half. My resume already has my new address. Any other tips?

I am currently looking to move back to Atlanta as soon as possiable. I am working in a law firm now but I would like to start getting my resume out in Atlanta. I have a house already in Atlanta and a home phone there also. Should I use my Atlanta address/phone on my resume even though Im still working in Oregon? Any suggestions on what I should include in my cover letter? I would like to get a few interviews before I actually move back.
