There are a number of unique challenges in hiring e-discovery professionals for government positions when compared to similar positions at law firms and corporate legal departments. Some challenges faced by government hiring managers are recruiting, lower compensation, examinations, long and sometimes mystifying application processes. This roundtable discussion will explore these challenges and provide some examples and ideas to overcome them and help find future rock stars. TRU founder and CEO will join the panel discussion on July 29 at 11:30am ET. Registration is free for ILTA members and $75 for nonmembers and can be found HERE.

TRU Q2 2021 NEWSLETTER

The pandemic recovery is electric throughout the data privacy, e-discovery, and cybersecurity communities. More jobs in our industries are open now than at any point in TRU’s history. Among the highlights this quarter is TRU’s “Why Now Is the Best Time in 20 Years to Make a Job Move in e-Discovery,” a call to action for ESI job seekers and wisdom for those who seek to hire them.

TRU—and the legal technology job market in general—had a landmark second quarter in 2021. Notching the highest count of job offers accepted in a single month (May) means TRU united more talent with employers than ever before. Emerging from the pandemic, there are clear variables that enable employers to acquire talent in data privacy, e-discovery, and cybersecurity over their competitors. Our staff-authored articles this quarter speak loudly to those distinctions and unpack the importance of speed of hire as well as the complexities of the return-to-office versus work-from-home debate.

The Pandemic Job Market: From Drought to Pandemonium

Over the last 12 months, the legal technology job market hit both a decade-long low and an all-time high for hiring, job movement and salary demand. In April 2020, the job market began its “Great Pause.” Subsequently, the second and third quarters of 2020 saw fewer legal technology job openings than any two quarters since 2010. Flash forward to the second quarter of 2021, and there is more talent demand than supply, rapid salary growth to attract and retain employees, broadly increased job opportunity derived from changes related to work-from-home (WFH) adoption, and a resulting never-before-seen level of turnover among middle-market positions that has the entire industry in a hiring frenzy.
