Forming good habits requires decication and diligence, especially in the beginning.
TOP 3 Trends For Q1 Hiring in e-Discovery & Cybersecurity
- Clients are hiring faster and more frequently than they were in January and February and “pulling the trigger” on many jobs in the interview process from as early as November.
- Consulting firms continue to put a premium on federal employees with the technical and consultative skills to build and grow cybersecurity practices throughout the country.
- Law firms are showing particular interest in hiring contract e-discovery professionals to augment their staff for big projects, especially at the analyst level.
If you are managing up to your boss, then your boss has time to mentor you. If your boss is managing you, they will likely have little time for mentorship.
TOP 3 Ways To Manage Up To Your Boss
- Organize reports of your activity and effort for your boss to review weekly. If your boss has to watch what you do daily they will likely be forced to micromanage.
- Use escalation as a "teachable moment" for your boss to mentor you in a high stakes incident. Escalation does not mean you exit the equation. Ride sidecar with your boss and get exposed to how they handle escalated situations.
- Set achievable quarterly goals for yourself, share them with your boss, and elicit feedback from your boss on whether you have achieved those goals. Then examine together how and why you did or did not meet your goals.
