Age is just a number—but when that number has a dollar sign in front of it, people tend to pay attention. Nonprofit organization Women in eDiscovery released its 2019 Salary Survey last week, and the results show a trend common in just about every other industry: The more experience one has, the more money they are able to command. But the quick-changing nature of technology inside the e-discovery sphere may shake up that paradigm.
The survey originally garnered more than 400 responses from international e-discovery professionals working for governments, corporate legal departments, law firms and vendors. Among those respondents, 93% identified as female, which were the demographic focused on for the purposes of the report.
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.
