Streamlined Hiring Means Nabbing the Best Candidates for Tech Jobs
With low unemployment in the tech sector providing an advantage for the workforce, employers need to be quick with their hiring processes lest they lose out on the most promising potential employees.
What's the Latest?
Unemployment in the American tech industry currently stands at 2.7%, much lower than the national figure of 6.7%. This means the current market for tech jobs is extremely candidate-driven and companies who draw out their recruitment processes risk missing out on top tech professional who become frustrated waiting for offers. Since neither the company or job candidate benefits from unfilled positions, the most successful IT hiring managers are beginning to assert themselves.
What's the Big Idea?
With companies scrambling to hire talent, successful hiring managers in the tech sector have begun playing the role of buyer over seller. Promising job candidates, the real buyers in this market, are able to take their pick of the many companies yearning for their services. It's the job of the hiring manager to make the right pitch. A company can further streamline its hiring practices (and better compete for top talent) by promoting more cohesive collaboration between recruiters, human resources, and hiring managers. This would cut the amount of time it takes for information to travel between the three and shorten the amount of time between an interview and a job offer.
