TRU Q4 2018 Newsletter

Q4 closed out an incredible year for TRU and our clients! Before we recap the wealth of original content created in the last three months, we wanted to share just a few statistics from 2018, specifically from the fourth quarter, that we believe you will find compelling.

TRU received more job orders in the fourth quarter than in any other quarter last year. December was the fifth highest ranking month at TRU for new job orders from clients. October ranked first with the highest amount of job order requests received all year. Our professional communities intensified their pursuit of net new talent at the end of last year, and we anticipate that surge continuing into Q1 2019.

Remote (or work-from-home) placements constituted 27% of placements made by TRU in 2018; this is up from only 3.6% in 2014. Conversely, relocation hires have dipped from 27% to only 7.3% of placements made from 2014 to 2018. This makes sense—more virtual staffing, less need for relocation. Clients in all sectors are adapting to the candidate-driven demand for remote opportunities, and for many employers, this trend means finding better talent at lower costs.

What may fascinate many legal tech professionals is that requests for contract staffers in cybersecurity, e-discovery, and privacy combined constitutes a whopping 44% of job orders we received in 2018. Employers and employees have become more equipped to embrace the benefits of contract augmentation in these nuanced disciplines, and TRU is committed to representing the best and brightest talent, many of whom yearn for the contract lifestyle!

2018 truly was a great year for growth, and we wish everyone a fruitful 2019 and beyond in the cyber, ESI, and privacy industries. Let the New Year begin!

TRU Tips

History, service, and substance are what define a buyer/salesperson relationship.

TOP 3 Misconceptions About The COVID Job Market
  • Only people out of work are available to hire. FALSE. Many employees are reexamining their employer relationship as a result of this crisis and a surprising number of employed professionals are considering the market.
  • Hiring managers are hiring at the same market rates before because cybersecurity, e-discovery, and privacy are so specialized/recession-proof. FALSE. Employers will expect to get talent at a discount for several more months. This should change by October when job seekers will regain more negotiating power as demand increases and existing resources approach burn out.
  • Most law firms will expect people back in the office ASAP. FALSE. Remarkably, about 50% of TRU law firm clients who have started rehiring don’t have the expectation that new hires will ever have to come back to the office for ESI, privacy, or security support staff positions.
