The Pandemic Job Market, Part Two: From Pandemonium to Institutional Recalibration

There is nothing normal about any return-to-office plan. For most, if not all, a return to office means vaccine and mask mandates, regular COVID testing, personal risk versus professional ambition calculations, and/or commuter rituals and requirements shifting weekly in a hybrid model. These factors have led to an alarming amount of attrition and an ensuing frenzy of hiring this year for every corporation, law firm, software company, or service provider in the legal space. The result is a slow, arduous hiring process in the legal industry created by the refusal of some employers, namely law firms, to accept new realities related to the future of work and the motivations of talent in the industry today. Conversely, other employers have turned strife into opportunity and have begun to recalibrate their institutional policies, processes, technologies, and permissions to attract and retain workers.

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.

Law Firms May Be Facing an eDiscovery and Tech Personnel Crisis: eDiscovery Trends

If the Barbra Streisand song lyric “people who need people…are the luckiest people…in the world” is true, then personnel managers at law firms must be very lucky indeed. I’m sure they don’t feel that lucky, given the current eDiscovery and tech personnel crisis that many of them are beginning to face.

Remote Work Is Still King: E-Discovery Talent Jettisons From Inflexible Firms

E-discovery is heating back up as more litigation and investigations kick off post-pandemic. But as law firms prepare for increased demand, some firms’ strict in-person or hybrid work requirements may be hurting their mid-level e-discovery talent recruitment.

TRU Q3 2021 Newsletter

Q3 continued to set new records for available positions in data privacy, e-discovery, and cybersecurity. There was no late summer/early fall cyclical dip in hiring. Our clients are busy now, and they need talent now. Contract staffing hires soared in data privacy in Q3, and demand for ESI project managers, analysts, and forensic collections pros remained constant and voluminous.

However, the biggest trend in Q3 is trying to answer when—or if—employees should “come back” into the office. Law firms are at the forefront of this question, with roughly 80% issuing blanket return-to-office mandates. On the other hand, service providers are embracing their new normal and allowing many employees flexible or even entirely work-from-home hours. Add in vaccine mandates, mask policies, inflated but stabilizing salaries, kids returning to in-person school, and the plethora of other questions and challenges, and the job market is as complicated and competitive as ever.

Privacy job market at 'full-tilt hiring boogie'

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present new privacy challenges from mandated vaccinations to remote work, and new privacy laws and regulations emerge throughout the U.S. and across the world, the need for privacy professionals shows no signs of slowing down.

In fact, the privacy job market is seeing the opposite, TRU Staffing Partners Founder and CEO Jared Coseglia and Hintze Law Founder and Managing Partner Susan Hintze, CIPP/US, CIPT, FIP, said during a LinkedIn Live with IAPP Senior Westin Fellow Omer Tene.

TRU Q2 2021 NEWSLETTER

The pandemic recovery is electric throughout the data privacy, e-discovery, and cybersecurity communities. More jobs in our industries are open now than at any point in TRU’s history. Among the highlights this quarter is TRU’s “Why Now Is the Best Time in 20 Years to Make a Job Move in e-Discovery,” a call to action for ESI job seekers and wisdom for those who seek to hire them.

TRU—and the legal technology job market in general—had a landmark second quarter in 2021. Notching the highest count of job offers accepted in a single month (May) means TRU united more talent with employers than ever before. Emerging from the pandemic, there are clear variables that enable employers to acquire talent in data privacy, e-discovery, and cybersecurity over their competitors. Our staff-authored articles this quarter speak loudly to those distinctions and unpack the importance of speed of hire as well as the complexities of the return-to-office versus work-from-home debate.

The Pandemic Job Market: From Drought to Pandemonium

Over the last 12 months, the legal technology job market hit both a decade-long low and an all-time high for hiring, job movement and salary demand. In April 2020, the job market began its “Great Pause.” Subsequently, the second and third quarters of 2020 saw fewer legal technology job openings than any two quarters since 2010. Flash forward to the second quarter of 2021, and there is more talent demand than supply, rapid salary growth to attract and retain employees, broadly increased job opportunity derived from changes related to work-from-home (WFH) adoption, and a resulting never-before-seen level of turnover among middle-market positions that has the entire industry in a hiring frenzy.
