Beyond The Heap – Finding the Treasure in Technical Recruiting

Have you ever lost something expensive in the…trash?

You had that diamond ring in your hands and it just slipped right out of your fingers.  Kind of like a great candidate slipping away because the hiring technology you were using was not a great match for you, as the recruiter.  So, how can you match an ideal candidate to a position if the tech you’re using doesn’t match…you?  Recruiting nightmares 101!

Constant growth in IT hiring presents many challenges to employers. The most sought after IT pros pick and choose between multiple offers. Hiring managers expect recruiters to shortlist  prospective hires with qualifications exactly matching job requirements.  It can get messy. 

Also, as the hiring manager’s technical talent advisor, you also need to be certain that the individuals being considered for the position have the necessary technical experience and skills.  So – where do you start? Without an extensive technical background (or a crystal ball), your best tool for a successful recruiting cycle starts with a purposeful intake.

So you may have recently seen our webinar with Tim Sackett about how to streamline your IT hiring efforts with a perfect technical interview process.  Because we had such a great turnout that we decided to keep the party going with another celeb in the world of recruiting – Steve Levy.

Thanks to our pals at eTeki, Steve will be joining us on May 30th.  He’ll give us insight into how the intake should go for technical positions, as well as some of his personal insights into all things happening in recruiting today.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Separate recruiting trash from treasure
  • Decide the best IT hiring techniques for you
  • Match your hiring tech with your hiring techNIQUE

You don’t want to miss this.
