  1. Decide why data privacy is important to you.
  2. Figure out what companies can teach you.
  3. Find technical opportunities and leverage your technical skills.

As the economy dips, full-time headcount approvals may go down while the workloads for ESI providers may go up. Contractors are an ideal solution to get work done despite FTE restrictions.

  2. Rapid business growth. 
  3. Supply second- or third-shift coverage.

According to, the legal industry has grown from $713.23 billion in 2021 to $788.9 billion in 2022, which is a substantial increase for any industry in a year’s time.


Top 3 metrics that lead organizations to win (or lose) ediscovery talent:

  1. Speed of hire.
  2. Compensation inflation. 
  3. Workforce evolution (remote vs. in-office; contract vs. direct hire).

In 2021, the average time to hire from resume submission to offer extension for an ediscovery professional was eight business days. In early 2022, that timeline grew to 12-14 days. Now, that timeline has extended to 20 or 30 days.


Top 3 reasons ESI jobs that stay open longer than 20-30 days lose candidates:

  1. Competing or counteroffers from current employer.
  2. Candidates decide they are unwilling to come into an office as much as the role requires.
  3. Lengthy interview processes with (perhaps too) many stakeholders.
