SocialTalent has just the solution. We’ve partnered with Alison Daley, the Founder and CEO of Recruiting Innovation, to create a program of content on our e-learning platform that’s dedicated to demystifying the world of IT and tech recruiting.

Why is recruiting tech talent so difficult?

Recruiting IT professionals comes with its own unique set of challenges. Aside from the supply and demand issues that are currently happening, hiring tech talent is a tricky test – Protocol even referred to it as an extreme sport! Some of the common barriers are:

  • Difficult to screen without a strong base knowledge of tech skills and requirements.
  • IT professionals are a hot commodity, so you have to move fast. It is reported that 89% of tech candidates will bow out of a process if the timeline is too prolonged.
  • Ensuring your benefits and salary options are competitive and tailored. Things like flexibility are very important to this sphere.
  • The discipline is constantly changing and innovating. 
  • Companies want more diversity in their tech candidates.

It’s important to give yourself a leg-up as a recruiter if you’re going to thrive in this arena. Our tech recruiter training will arm you with the knowledge needed to gain this competitive advantage.
