TRU Tips

If you’ve paid to go to Fest, take one of the specialty certifications. It's free with your admission to Fest. Even if you haven’t studied, the act of taking the test is a useful learning experience and will help you pass in the future.

TOP 3 Takeaways From Relativity Fest 2018
  • Relativity Fest is no longer just a user conference, it is a trade show. It is now the trade show for e-discovery focused legal technologists and attorneys, with over 2100 attendees this year. There was not a seat in the house for the keynote—standing room only.
  • In 2017 there were only 40 Relativity Masters; in 2018 that doubled to 80+ Masters. Of the 148 who hold Relativity Expert status, 147 were only one certification away from Master status. Expect a surge of Relativity Master talent into the market in 2019. This will make a wealth of new people much more marketable and appealing for employers. The value of Expert and Master status is beginning to matter in the market for both companies who employ and the individual who holds the certification.
  • Re-invent yourself. Legal and technology is not just e-discovery anymore, it is privacy and cybersecurity as well. Continue to learn more disciplines and keep re-inventing yourself. There was a ton of security and privacy related content in the Fest session agenda.

When we asked our clients in the cybersecurity, e-discovery, and privacy industries to reflect on the third quarter of 2018, one observation remained consistent: the summer of 2018 was the busiest and most active summer of hiring anyone can remember in recent history. TRU had a record-breaking number of placements in Q3 this year, largely due to the aggressive increase in demand for privacy professionals in law firms, corporations, and consulting firms as well as the steadily increasing demand for contract e-discovery project managers and analysts. Get a full recap of all the Q3 2018 content and milestones for TRU here, and brace yourself for a busy and opportunity-filled fourth quarter in the cyber, ESI, and privacy fields!

Salary history disclosure law is changing throughout the U.S., notably in New York, Massachusetts, and California. If you’re an employer, be careful not to overstep your boundaries; if you’re an employee, know your rights!

TOP 3 Myths And Misunderstandings For Recent Laws About Salary Disclosure In New York, Massachusetts, California, And Other States
  • MYTH: Salary history bans prohibit asking a potential business development employee about their revenue goals, achievements, and quota.
  • TRUTH: Recruiters and employers can ask these questions, as long as they are not able to directly and clearly discern salary information.
  • MYTH: In states with salary history bans, it is illegal for anyone to ask about salary history.
  • TRUTH: Only potential employers are prohibited from asking about salary history. For example, surveying organizations can ask these questions.
  • MYTH: It is acceptable for potential employers to ask about salary history if you are living outside of states with salary history bans but relocating or interviewing for a job in these states.
  • TRUTH: If the role is located in states with salary history bans, regardless of the candidate’s current physical location, interviewers cannot ask about salary history.
