In the words from the song “Shallow” from a Star is Born with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga,
“Tell me somethin’, girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for?”
Okay, it could be “girl or boy,” but let’s hope you are not searching for top tech talent at this moment in time but my guess is you are because more than three-quarters of our client partners are. As discussed ad nauseam in newspapers, online journals, and just about every source including the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, we are definitely living in a modern world where unemployment rates are low and demand for specialty positions like Software Engineers, Data Scientists and Frond/Back-end Developers is at an all-time high.
We also have learned through primary and secondary research, and articles that:
– CEO’s rank attracting and retaining top talent as their No. 1 internal concern (C-Suite Challenge 2019™)
– Include location, if remote work is an option and salary in your initial email so candidates know if upfront if they want to invest time into the recruiting process
– Speed wins most offer competitions (https://www.ere.net/powerful-deal-closers-when-you-positively-must-land-a-candidate/)
– Career path transparency is key and should be included on your career site for more visibility and awareness. Netguru.com has a very good example of this: https://www.netguru.com/career/paths/ios
We’ve also gleaned many more insights from the tech audience that we want to share with you.
