TRU Staffing Partners and the IAPP Join Forces for Career Transition Webinar

TRU Staffing Partners, a globally recognized award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in cybersecurity, e-discovery, and data privacy, today announces that Founder and CEO Jared Coseglia will moderate and co-host a webinar with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) on February 25, 2020, on why and how e-discovery professionals can transition into data privacy professionals.

Coseglia will be joined by panelists Rita Heimes, General Counsel and Data Protection Officer for IAPP; Michael Quartararo, President of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS); Debbie Reynolds, Founder, CEO, and Global Data Privacy and Protection Consultant of Debbie Reynolds Consulting; and Ron Whitworth, Senior Vice President and Chief Privacy Officer of Truist for the webinar titled “Career Transitioning from e-Discovery into Privacy.”

Coseglia will provide an in-depth explanation of why e-discovery professionals are uniquely positioned to move into privacy, the steps they should take to do so, and why hiring managers in privacy should take advantage of e-discovery talent available in the marketplace. The panel will share their experience on hiring profiles, needed skill sets, legal and technical competencies, and where the two disciplines overlap. Panelists will also share their success stories facilitating a transition from ESI to data privacy, either personally or from those they have hired. Finally, our panel will break down the IAPP certification ecosystem, providing attendees with clear examples of where to start exploring this career transition.

“Both ACEDS and the IAPP are the gold standard certification bodies for e-discovery and privacy professionals looking to validate their knowledge bases and accelerate their professional growth and earning potential,” states Coseglia. “TRU Staffing Partners is honored to facilitate bringing these two organizations together along with leading industry experts and hiring managers from both privacy and e-discovery to tell the story of why and how professionals can become dual disciplined or make full transitions from one area of expertise to the other.”

The event will take place from 10:30AM – 11:30AM and will be free for anyone and everyone who wants to join. Registration is available now HERE.

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.
