What is a good objective to get a legal secretary or legal assistant job?
I need to get a job in the legal field, but I do not have any experience other than my current customer service/clerical/admin full time work. I've been having a hard time deciding if I should say something simple like, " Seeking a legal secretary position for a progressive organization" or " Responsible position in the legal industry involving multiple detail oriented responsibilities".
