Paralegals who do Blue Sky work, how did you break into that realm of work? Is it all "just by chance experience" how you got started? Does anyone think taking specific courses in this area would help land a job doing this kind of work? Thanks!

What should I do to get more callbacks/interviews? Should I reach out to HR/Recruiter directly? Should I get a paralegal cert? Should I do the programs on Forage?
