5 Steps To Successfully Employing Technical Candidates
Step 1: Be Proactive When Searching A high volume of applicants doesn’t necessarily ensure high quality candidates. As is the case when hiring for most positions. Those perfect hires get even rarer when you’re seeking out specific technical skills. Instead of simply posting to job boards, get proactive. Incorporate a combination of various hiring tactics, for instance: online advertising & social media, attend local and national job fairs, regional university recruitment, implement a employee referral program, and sometimes, direct headhunting.
Step 2: Structured Interviews One of the biggest challenges when hiring for tech positions is making sure the interviewers are as well informed about the skills required for the role as the applicant. In the interview phase, make sure you have your top engineers and managers evaluate the candidate with knowledge and behavioural based questions.
Step 3: Office Culture Counts While recruiters do, of course, need to focus on finding candidates with the technical skills required for the job, cultural fit is also important to ensure a successful, long-term hire. Research has found a high correlation between cultural fit, job satisfaction and low employee turnover, so vet candidates based on your company’s core values.
Step 4: Know What You Want Recruiters are sometimes eager to start searching for candidates as soon as a hiring manager gives them a job order. But, before you go in search of candidates, make sure you and your team of recruiters fully understand the job requirements. Ask the hiring manager questions before jumping into the talent pool, like “What kind of technology is the engineer working with?” and “How does it interact with other technology in this business?”
Step 5: Increase Your Scope Because tech talent is in high demand, don’t limit yourself to traditional recruiting techniques. Always consider new options for finding candidates, not just the ones that are tried and true. And don’t limit yourself to sourcing local talent either. Have a big vision, because quite often, the best technical hire will not be located in your backyard.
