At last month’s IC SuperConference, I had the pleasure of connecting in-person with many of our readers. It’s an annual treat for me. It also served as a reminder that most attorneys really have just one primary question for recruiters: “What’s hot?”
This year, it is a very easy question to answer. Compliance jobs are steamy hot, and they come in many forms. The most rapid headcount growth is occurring within heavily regulated industries, such as financial services and health care. These are not always highly paid positions, or even positions requiring a law degree. And yet, attorneys with industry expertise are filling many such roles.
