TRU Staffing Partners and ACEDS Bring Additional Interactive Webinars to the Legal Industry

Summer series focuses on “Ask the Expert: Burning Career Questions in e-Discovery” concept

NEW YORK – June 21, 2017 – TRU Staffing Partners, an award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in e-discovery and cybersecurity, and the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), part of leading legal education provider BARBRI, today announced the companies have partnered to bring out a special webinar summer series on “Ask the Expert: Burning Career Questions in e-Discovery.” The webinars will take place the last Thursday of each month – June 29, July 27, and August 31 – and will feature TRU founder and CEO Jared Coseglia along with Mary Mack, executive director of ACEDS, and Kaylee Walstad, director of strategic partnerships at ACEDS.

The companies have partnered on these webinars in the past and have continued them into the summer months due to high demand and record-breaking attendance. The webinars are the attendees’ opportunity to anonymously ask any questions about careers, what certifications will enhance their career and resume, the state of the industry, compensation metrics, trends and patterns in hiring practices, how to interview or prepare the right resume, how to survive acquisition or anything else they are interested in. Questions can be submitted ahead of time or live during the webcast.

“TRU’s strategic alliance with ACEDS has been an impactful contributor to the continuing education of professionals in the e-discovery community for years,” states Coseglia. “Whether partnering on our annual scholarship program, co-sponsored regional thought leadership and conference events or these ‘Ask the Expert’ webinars, TRU and ACEDS have together enriched the lives and careers of hundreds of professionals by providing market intelligence and access to job information that cannot be found elsewhere. Summer months are a time for reflection, and we hope more professionals in e-discovery will join us for these webinars in order to validate what they know, discover things they don’t know and ask anything they are curious to know with no judgments!”

“The response to ‘Ask the Expert: Burning Career Questions in e-Discovery’ has been amazing, and it’s been a lot of fun and has acquired quite the following,” says Kaylee Walstad. “The live questions run the gamut from certifications to how can I move up to management and everything in between. Jared’s vast statistical knowledge on hiring metrics and career planning coupled with his vision into market trends makes the webinar come alive with audience interaction and live polling responses. Mary Mack is a treasure trove of industry trends and holds many certifications from CEDS to CISSP and can speak to their process and importance.”

This webinar is open to everyone; you do not have to be an ACEDS member to participate. Registration is available at Questions can be submitted prior to the webinar at [email protected].

The U.S.’s state-by-state privacy regulation approach is creating jobs—and inefficiency.

TOP 3 Unforeseen Effects Of Increased State (Rather Than Federal) Privacy Regulation On The Privacy Job Market
  • Outside counsel will hyperextend their Data Privacy practice hiring to service the needs of corporations who cannot or do not want to keep up with privacy regulations in-house.
  • Contract staffing for privacy lawyers will balloon until federal legislation levels the playing field.
  • If and when Federal legislation does pass, the need for privacy pros may decrease due to the growing inflation of demand corporations face to stay compliant in all fifty states as well as abroad.

Contract opportunities will surge in November and December as FTEs take vacation or maternity/paternity and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) comes into effect!

TOP 3 Busiest Times for Contract Opportunities
  • Landmark legislation: When big law (CCPA, GDPR, FRCP) comes closer to taking effect, companies bolster their teams with contractors to prepare and catch up.
  • Leave: Whether it’s extended vacation or celebrating the birth of a new family member, when full time employees take time off, hiring managers augment with temporary resources.
  • Large Projects: When big cases demand bigger and potentially more sophisticated teams, contractors become the solution to fill the talent gaps.
