Q: I am in parks college studying to become a paralegal and they are going to give me an associate degree for that. I want to know if that is a waste of time because there not certified by AB
A: Will i be able to get a job after i
graduate? Or am i wasting my time? Does anyone have an opinion of parks
A:Myself and another male graduated at the top of our class at an ABA approved paralegal school with an Associate of Applied Science Legal Assistant-Paralegal. I am, also, a Registered Nurse. I, also, took and passed the Certified Legal Assistant Exam. Neither the other male nor myself were ever offered any paralegal job despite our being at the top of our class. Many, if not most, minorities and females received lucrative job offers as paralegals even before graduation despite having significantly lower grades than either he or I. The discrimination against males in all traditionally female jobs such as paralegals and nursing is rampant. The Federal Government not only does not protect caucasian males from discrimination in tradtionally female jobs, it promulgates this same discrimination. The discrimination against males in the paralegal profession is well known. Male R.N.'s, who compromise approximately 5% of the Registered Nurses in the USA, are leaving nursing at approximately twice the rate as female Registered Nurses. The aforementioned clearly indicates that males face discrimination which the Federal Government promulgates not only in tradtionally male jobs but also in tradtionally female jobs. You might be lucky and obtain a job as a paralegal. I suggest that you take and pass the Certified Legal Assistant exam.The same will assist you a great deal in obtaining employment as a paralegal. The Center for Individual Rights has filed a law suit in Federal District Court with the caption "Worth v. Martinez" alleging that the EEOC and HUD have promulgated massive reverse discrimination against caucasian males. That's not very reassuring. I don't want to waste time or money on a lost venture. I couldn't get any help from the people at school because they're told to not answer the questions that could affect attendance. I will call them again and get some answers. Because i can switch courses quicker that way. Although i did work for a law firm and there were only women paralegals and women secretaries except for one. However there was allot of lesbians there it still isn't the same. I just thought that it was a untapped market like nursing. However i wanted to work at being a paralegal while i was not continuing my legal education.
