IT talent makes the world go round. It’s getting harder and harder to recruit the best people in the tech industry and it’s the same dilemma all over the world. While we cannot go door to door and preach about how the IT industry needs more talent, tech recruiters have to solve this concern head on right now: getting the perfect fit talents to join their team. The thing is, the workforce has evolved and it’s not all about money anymore. It’s not just about the free coffee or the HMO either (although that counts too, of course). The modern tech recruiter has got to be smart and savvy, and employ these tips to get ahead of the recruitment game.
The last thing you want to do is to make an IT professional feel like they’re not worth the pay. If you would notice, all IT wages are mostly branded as competitive, and it’s within reason. If the demand is high, the expected pay is even higher — especially if they’re a hard-to-find talent (we’re looking at you System Engineers and co.). For your reference (and job seekers), you can opt to check the updated list of IT salaries according to skill and experience via the

Sometimes, you have to hype them and give them a visual of their potential life in the office. To help them “see” a future in the company, give them an office tour. Brief the IT team beforehand so they can interact and convey a good company culture where they can thrive. Bonus points if your company already has a relaxation area where IT people can unwind.
At the end of the day, It’s not just a tech job
You might be pulling all stops trying to make ends meet just to hit your quota, but in the end, these are people who are making a living and it’s up to you to make sure that their next job is going to be worth it. It’s up to you to give these amazing tech people meaningful jobs.
