Candidates Vying for Some In-House Legal Roles May Have to Get in Line

Going into the fall, in-house legal may continue to see a large number of applicants vying for a limited number of jobs. However, alternative legal service providers may begin to woo a significant portion of that talent pool away. Writer Frank Ready turned to TRU's Jared Coseglia for input.

"Legal operations positions, on the other hand, may take a back seat to more project-based work opportunities over the next few months as companies try to get their feet back on solid ground post-COVID-19. 'We’ve seen those jobs in less abundance than privacy and security but still functioning in the project-based modality. Getting their house in order. Cleaning things up that they have the time to do now,' Jared Coseglia, founder and CEO of Tru Staffing Partners, said.

"Meanwhile, workers who are unable to secure a coveted full-time legal department position may turn in the direction of alternative legal service providers, or ALSPs, who may also be taking advantage of the inflated legal job market to obtain talent they may not otherwise be able to afford.

"'We’ve seen project managers who are used to making $150,000 a year take a job at $115,000 because it’s a good job. There may be may not be jobs at $150,000 for the next six months,' Coseglia said."
