Many paralegals entering the workforce these days have high expectations. Steady salary increases, expanded workplace challenges, and broad benefits packages all contribute to robust paralegal employment opportunities and job satisfaction.

Job Satisfaction in the Paralegal Field

The paralegal profession is hailed as being one of the fastest-growing industries of the 2000s, and according to an NFPA compensation and benefits survey, paralegals seem to enjoy their work. Nearly half of those surveyed rated their job satisfaction as high or very high. Only a small number (10%) of paralegals rated their job satisfaction as being low, and an even smaller number (3%) deemed it very low. There are fewer experienced paralegals switching jobs, supporting the notion that most seem to be happy with their current employment situations.

Paralegal salaries depend on a wide range of factors, including education, training, experience, geographic location, and type of firm. Paralegals working in large metropolitan areas usually make more money than those in less-populated regions, mostly due to the fact that larger areas tend to have more crimes and legal issues.
