TRU Staffing Partners, a leading search firm representing talent and opportunities in the e-discovery and litigation support space, today announced it has received just under 100 applications for the recently launched Scholarship Program.

The Scholarship Program was initially announced in March as a way to bring needed training and

education to potential job seekers in the legal technology industry. The deadline to submit applications was May 15, 2012. Current scholarship partners include LitWorks™/DTI and Georgetown University Paralegal Studies Program, with others in the works. eDiscovery Journal will also be selecting two of the recipients and giving them the opportunity to document their entire experience with the scholarship they receive on the eDiscovery Journal blog: http://ediscoveryjournal.com/blog/.

The applications have come in from 16 different states, with 26 percent coming from California, around 40 percent coming in from New York and New Jersey, and 10 percent from the Greater Washington, DC area. Sixty-nine percent of the applicants are currently working in the legal industry. Current roles vary greatly and include contract attorneys, analysts, consultants, litigation support project managers and coordinators, litigation support specialists, and paralegals, among others. The current salary and work history information provided by the applicants indicates that about 63 percent are in entry-level positions, underscoring one of the significant trends that TRU President Jared Coseglia recently discussed in his article on the Forensic Focus website: “There remains an abundance of talent who want to become project managers, but little opportunity for entry-level talent to break into the industry.” Coseglia also discusses the “need for big-picture EDRM education, coupled with practical technical training,” which TRU is helping to facilitate with its scholarship program. (To read the article, visit: http://articles.forensicfocus.com/2012/05/09/digital-forensics-and-ediscovery-employment-the-state-of-the-market-2012/.)

“The response to this year’s pilot program has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are exploring new partnerships that we anticipate will allow us to give five times the amount of scholarship opportunities next year,” said Coseglia. “These partnerships will include paralegal institutes, software companies, and certification programs.”

The applications will go into the selection process and recipients will be notified and announced by July 4, 2012. Scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to execute their education and training in the third and fourth quarters of 2012.

If you are a technology company or educational organization that would like to participate in this program, please contact Andrew Brody, TRU Staffing Partners COO.

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.

This series will examine how U.S. employment practices, policies, patterns, and people’s behavior may change in the coming months. Each chapter of this series will delve into a specific observation or trend. This week’s focus: “Selling Without Socializing.”
