On Monday, I went on a job interview at a law firm for a file clerk position, which means I would just scan documents, answer the phones and a few other tasks but not really working on the files. On Wednesday, they called me, I thought they were going to tell me I was either hired or they went with another candidate, but the lady called me and said she looked over my resume again, and because I have a paralegal certificate she thinks I would be better suited for a position in the Foreclosure department since I know the documents and procedures. Now, I have the second interview on Monday.
Has this happened to anyone and if it has, did you do anything different?
Can you guys please give me some advice because I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

There's the saying that when opportunity knocks, answer. Opportunity is knocking, so go for it. It sounds like a much better position than the one you interviewed for.
Also read between the lines. What does it tell you about the company? It shows they are the kind of company that is willing to move you up when you show the skills and attitude for higher positions. It sounds like a good place to learn, grow and get good job experience. That has a lot of value in addition to whatever pay they offer you.
Yes, I've had similar things happen, but not in the same way you did.1
