It should go without saying… yet, some basics cannot be emphasized enough.Let’s say you are an accomplished IT network administrator, and now you are applying for a paralegal position. Not because you acquired a paralegal certificate in evening classes. You do so because the opening is in the U.S. or German city where you would like to work – let’s say Munich, or Los Angeles – and because it sounds exciting, like “paratrooper” and “big law firm.” Save yourself the effort – there is only one likely outcome. You would be perceived as unprofessional or, worse, as a dimwit. Not a chance. Not even in America! Source: [Germany-USA Career Tips](http://www.germany-usa.com/pages/for-applicants.php)
