There is a global shortage of technical talent. In this age of technology, sourcing and recruiting tech talent is highly competitive. Stack Overflow recently surveyed more than 100,000 developers and inquired about their job seeking status. They found that 16% of Developers looking for job actively and 75% of them are interested in hearing about new job opportunities.
So what can we absorb from here that tech candidates find it interesting to read through job openings in their domain to see what companies has to offer. If they find any opening that attracts them, then they may make a move. So working on your Employer’s branding where you are showing tech talents the best of you and obviously focus on making your job opening more detailed and fun. And yes, focus on high employee benefits too.
Here in this article, I will share with you few tips to fill tech positions quickly.
Focus on referrals
Offer a handsome amount to your employees to refer candidates. This is of a high benefits. #1 If your employee is referring someone, then for sure your employee is referring the right candidate. #2 The candidate who will be coming to interview from employee referral will be interested to join because their friend or some one known if already working with the company.
Attend MeetUps and Hackathons
This is another good opportunity because when you attend these kinds of events you get to know a talent and/or skills of a candidate without even interviewing them because when they give a speech or take participation in the event. You can network with them and offer opening from your company.
Number matters. If you are able to scan more resume in less time, then you can interview more candidate. If you interview more candidate, then you chances are higher of getting a good talent.
Pay attention to candidates
Listen to the candidate. It is very important to understand what they are looking for. If you are unable to meet them, then it will be very hard for you to hire the right talent.
