GCs Looking for Jobs Post-Pandemic Should Flex Cybersecurity and Crisis Management Muscles

The COVID-19 pandemic has equipped corporate attorneys with a brand new set of skills and experiences but has also fundamentally changed what legal departments may be looking for from a new hire. In order to stand out from a stack of resumes, attorneys may have to redefine their value as a leader and corporate asset. Writer Frank Ready sought out TRU's Jared Coseglia for his advice to attorneys seeking new employment in a post-pandemic job market.

""[Employers] are already asking these questions. I mean on our C-level or GC-level searches through corporate legal departments, one of the very first questions is, ‘Were you involved with a COVID-19 task force and what was your contribution?’” said Jared Coseglia, founder and CEO of TRU Staffing Partners Inc.

“'Privacy is a gateway to data strategy and being able to advise the C-level or the board about the balance between legal risk and business opportunity when it comes to their employee data and their customer data is absolutely a niche that will enable future GCs to be more valuable and more compensated than their counterparts,' he said."
