    My “career” needs an extreme makeover! I’ve been a temp worker for the past 2 years and I am trying to secure a legal assistant position in a permanent full-time role. I don’t think a bad economy should dictate my career success but I am at my wits end and need some advice. I have gotten virtually no interest in my resume only responses for more contract positions.
