    TRU Tips

    About 50% of roles filled by TRU in June 2020 were jobs that had been active prior to COVID.

    TOP 3 Job Market Takeaways From Q2 2020
    • For most alternative legal service providers, the bottom was felt in April and May with all-time lows in net new hires.
    • The privacy job market is coming back strong, but corporations are rethinking and retooling their leadership roles/responsibilities rather than hiring/scaling their middle management staff.
    • ESI companies and law firms are running lean on talent despite rising billables. ESI mid-market staffing remains flat (on hold mostly) for project managers and analysts.
