You may have noticed an increasing focus in this blog on career opportunities in electronic discovery / disclosure and the wider world where technology meets legal practice.
I have no intention of becoming a kind of jobs board, but my eye falls occasionally on things which might serve to encourage people into this area. I have written recently, for example, about job roles at Consilio and about international opportunities for Relativity, in both cases because they might help people understand the very wide range of opportunities which are out there. If the main focus is on encouraging young people to join in, there are opportunities also for people with skills acquired elsewhere to move sideways into a business which shows no sign of contracting.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
