What are Employers Offering?

For those of you who have applied and/or been interviewed for jobs recently, what is the salary or hourly rate that is being offered.  You do not have to tell us what you are getting paid, but if you could offer some examples of what potential employers are offering for entry-level or non-entry-level paralegal positions, that would be helpful.

  1. I have been looking for a summer position and through my search I have noticed that most positions offered compensation based on experience. Currently according to the web an entry level paralegal position with less then 1 year experience will average $34,600 annually.

  2. After much research I was able to find that entry level paralegals in 2009 made an average of almost $37,000 a year, with less than one years experience.Of course, average salaries may vary and can depend on which area of practice the paralegal belongs to.For example, paralegals working for corporate offices make almost $40,000 a year, much more than a paralegal working as a notary public even with the same level of experience. Other determinating factors can depend on the geographical regions one is associted with and the educational experience someone has.In someone cases,someone who obtained as high as a bachelors degree in education can make more than someone who just has a certificate. A paralegal who is very proficient in computer/legal software is also seen as a valuable member in a legal firm since these technical skills can be critical when working in the legal field . All these factors can determine ones’ salary particularly as a paralegal but apply to other careers as well.I hope this helps!
