TRU Q1 2021 NEWSLETTER

The job market is back!

Q1 2021 has been as busy at TRU as any in our history. We have filled more positions in Q1 2021 than in any Q1 in over ten years. Hiring speed has accelerated to unprecedented levels, with executive-level roles filling in three to six weeks and mid-market to entry-level positions filling in days. With hiring for most roles still being remote and anywhere in the country, the volume and availability of talent have made the hiring processes move at warp speed in verticals with need. Let’s be clear—there is no shortage of demand for e-discovery, data privacy and protection, and cybersecurity talent.

And, because Fido isn’t particularly adept at data entry, many lawyers also found their plates full with administrative tasks that used to be handled by others.

So what does this portend for the assistants who once took care of everything that wasn't billable? Zach Warren and Victoria Hudgens asked TRU founder and CEO Jared Coseglia to help them answer that question.
