IT recruiting was full of challenges before the pandemic and has only gotten harder. But believe it or not, there are hiring challenges you can control. Focusing on your brand, candidate experience, and an efficient recruiting process are only some of the ways to gain control over your recruiting efforts. See more from The most common recruiting challenges and how to overcome them by Nikoletta Bika.
Building Your Brand
It’s easy to spend lots of time analyzing what your customers think about your business, but what about potential hires? Whether you scout talent yourself or are a recruiting firm, reputations matter. Your web presence is a critical factor in attracting the right talent and being taken seriously when soliciting a high-profile candidate.
What your candidate’s experience from the first contact to formal offer matters. Every candidate interaction will be weighed and measured against recruiting competitors, especially for those with in-demand skills. Do you know how your potential hires feel going through your recruitment process? Remember, just because you don’t know doesn’t mean they aren’t sharing their experience.
Efficient Recruiting Process
The better the relationship between recruiters and the hiring team, the more efficient recruiting process you can enjoy. Communication is key. Clear away pain points as quickly as possible before they put undue strain on the relationship. Your results will be better during the process and after the hire.
There are plenty of challenges to finding, recruiting, and onboarding the right IT candidate. The better your process, the better your results. See the difference that BCT can make in your hiring process to get the talent you want.
