Job Bank Postings

Downloadable Instructions and Posting Form

The Job Bank is one of the many benefits provided to DAPA members and an asset for the legal community.  The Job Bank provides exclusive job opportunities to our members seeking employment throughout the Dallas metropolitan area and an ideal platform for employers to post job opportunities.  The ads are placed by all types of firms and corporations seeking paralegals with many varying types of experience.  Employers are aware that when applicants apply for positions posted on the DAPA website, they will get a well-qualified paralegal, as the member has met the standards required to be a DAPA member.  The Job Bank is password protected so that only DAPA members can view the postings.

The information on the Job Bank is updated on DAPA's website each time a new ad is received so that our members have an immediate opportunity to submit their qualifications for the position being posted.  There is also an email that is sent out to all members immediately when there is a job posting.

Below is a form that outlines how each job ad is posted on the DAPA website. There is a text box for Description, Function, Benefits and Other Information. The form should be used in preparing your job ad.

The cost of the ad is based on the total amount of words contained in each of the text boxes.

Ads containing 50 words or less $75.00
Ads containing up to 100 words $125.00
Ads containing up to 150 words $175.00
Ads containing up to 200 words $200.00
Ads containing up to 250 words $250.00

Please Note the following policy from the DAPA's Procedures Manual regarding job bank submissions by a personnel agency:
