In theory, the path to a new career should be a relatively simple one. Find a profession that’s appealing to you, enroll in a learning institution that can give you the proper training for that position, and, upon graduation, hit the interview trail.
Unfortunately, many graduates hoping to pursue careers as legal assistants are struggling to find careers even with the proper training. While the demand for legal assistants continues to rise, some graduates entering today’s job market have found they don’t have a background diverse enough to obtain the job they want.
Drawing on the real-world experience of its graduates and analyses of current trends in the job market, Dawn Training Centre has made enhancements to its Legal Assistant program, making it one of the most unique programs in the nation. The addition of courses involving the world of medicine helps graduates adjust to today’s demanding job market and broaden their opportunities of developing a successful career.
Dawn Training Centre has added a new requirement to its Legal Assistant program that allows students to diversify their experience to several career fields. The School now requires additional coursework in the following areas: medical terminology; medical science; and advanced keyboarding. This key adjustment gives graduates a faster track to a legal career.
“Adding these new courses makes our students better prepared to enter a job market that has become increasingly more demanding,” said Cheryl Zapata, Executive Vice President of Dawn Training Centre. “With this enhancement, we hope to make our students not only qualified, but sought-after.”
Legal Assistant classes at Dawn Training Centre include instruction in business, criminal, civil and family law. Teachers use classroom instruction and hands-on experience in all of the School’s career training programs. In addition, Dawn Training Centre helps students develop professional skills that build confidence in job searches and helps them build their resumÃ©s.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, legal assisting jobs are expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations through the year 2012. Professionals in these positions are vital parts of any law practice and perform a variety of tasks, such as assisting busy legal teams and performing many of the same tasks as lawyers.
