“Now more than ever certifications separate individuals from the masses when competing for jobs. It cannot be denied that getting certifications makes you more desirable to most hiring managers. Acquired skills aside, individuals who take the initiative to certify demonstrate the self-starter cultural dynamic that is always prized when assessing for promotion or making new hires,” states Jared Coseglia, founder and CEO of TRU Staffing Partners. “TRU is proud to have so many diverse and generous partners participating in this year’s program. Their inclusion speaks volumes about their organizations’ commitment to professionalizing our space, giving back to the community, and paving the way for talent to validate experience and learn new skills to advance their careers.”

On January 22, Law Technology Today published an article written by Coseglia, titled “Transforming e-Discovery and Cybersecurity Careers with Free Training and Education,” that looks at the importance of advanced training and education for existing and aspiring cybersecurity and e-discovery professionals in 2018.
