Inexperienced Attorneys Can Absolutely Get E-Discovery Jobs, But First They Need E-Discovery Experience

E-discovery salaries have climbed high enough that even lawyers with no relevant experience on their resumes may be tempted to try and cross over. Still, even with the serious demand for talent going on in the market right now, many e-discovery leaders at law firms or vendors may be reluctant to take a chance on untested candidates.

“Yes, there are people who would like to do [e-discovery]. No, they are not getting jobs. … There’s no time or desire from employers to train and groom talent,” Jared Coseglia, founder and CEO of TRU Staffing Partners, said.

He noted that a large percentage of e-discovery jobs tend to be rooted with either law firms and vendors, the former of which tends to adhere to a strict billing model that doesn’t favor the time that e-discovery newbies may need to learn the ropes.

“At a large firm or a vendor you are a billable employee. And if you can’t come on board and start billing immediately, what value are you really going to yield? … It’s not going to immediately alleviate that pain that everyone feels from being short-staffed right now,” Coseglia said.
