When you’re on the search for quality tech talent, you’ve got to have a plan. It’s not enough to just post on job portals or social media. Recruiting the best talents in the IT industry is a dog-eat-dog world and it’s all possible with these tips:
Apply new tactics
Just because you’re looking for a senior role, doesn’t mean that people who have less than 5 years of experience are immediately rejected. Remember, there are jobs today that have not been around over 5 years ago! In the same way, you cannot expect to lure in modern tech professionals with a 9-5 contract with no job perks. It’s tough competition in this industry, and you have to play the game differently if you want to stand out from the rest. A good, simple tip would be to simply ask the candidate what they are looking for specifically; what would make them stay long term while delivering expected results? They might have the answers you’re looking for.
Brush up on your tech jargon
When you’re looking to recruit senior tech professionals, you just can’t pretend to know what you’re talking about. You really have to familiarize yourself with tech terms — and more specific ones if you’re hiring for hard-to-fill roles. As a job seeker, they would only trust a recruiter or a job post that lists the right keywords and tech skills they are looking for, not a flowery JD that confuses them more than inspiring them to apply. For starters, you can check out our Ultimate Recruiter’s Guide: Developer Languages to update your current tech speak.
Be mobile friendly
It’s no secret that almost everyone has a smartphone these days and you’re losing so much time and effort if your website careers page isn’t mobile friendly. All the links you provide to the job posts must be accessible via smartphone browsers.
Have a smooth process
As a tech recruiter, it’s your job to make sure that candidates and potential hires would have a smooth experience during the application stage. Be sure to come through with your schedules and promises — whether it’s saying they got the job or not. Building a solid recruitment reputation will help you in the long run and it’s something you won’t regret.
Have something to say
Finally, whether it’s just job postings or a face-to-face interview, you have to create a lasting impression for the candidate. This is possible if you truly have something to say — not just having the best offer(s) in town. In this age of Millennials and Gen Zs, they might be looking more to work for companies or brands that aren’t just out there to make a profit. People want to work somewhere they can utilize their passions and interests and sometimes, that will outweigh big compensations.
