Does anyone here work or have past work experience in either field? Pros? Cons? I have a chance to get training for either one, and would enjoy both. I have been a cna in the past as well as a secretary,so I enjoyed both fields,but ready for something new. Tell me your experiences if you have worked as a pharmacy tech or paralegal. Also, if you haven't,which would you go for and why?

It is really tough to find a job in the legal field right now, at least where I am. I think pharmacy techs make more. I thought about retraining too but I can't afford to pay for it and we make toomuch to qualify for help.

Thats what I have heard, that the legal field is at a stand still now. I have a biology degree and eventually want to get into nursing,but im trying to do some quick training to change fields. I have also thought about being an accountant, which is why i considered paralegal,but idk. lol so confusing

Pharmacy tech... pays well, great benefits (if you work in hospital pharmacy).

I noticed this post was from 2012. If you are still interested in my thoughts I would be happy to respond in detail. I have been a paralegal for 10 years and would be happy to provide thoughts to you...
