Loyola University Chicago

Institute for Paralegal Studies

Current Students

Students may start a paralegal job search at any time. Applicants are more attractive to employers as they approach graduation. You should start a job search early in the semester in which you plan to graduate.  Reach out to the Paralegal Studies office or Loyola's Career Services Department for help getting started on your career search.  We are here for you as a resource throughout the rest of your career.

Handshake:  Loyola University's Job Board

Handshake (formerly Ramblerlink) is the University's job board and interactive career management tool. Students and alumni can browse job postings, apply for positions, sign up for interviews and events, and publish resumes to employer-searchable resume books. 


The Intro to Paralegal Studies course requires students to update and submit a resume for review.  You will receive valuable feedback.  Once you have an updated and professional resume completed, you can submit to the Paralegal Studies office to be shared with employers.  If an employer requests resumes that match your experience, you will be notified.
