At Sapiens we know and understand that the current IT market is crowded, we are seeing everyday candidates who are interested in working in this industry and with a lot of offers in hand. But, how do we excel as recruiters and find the perfect fit for our clients and our company’s needs? Here we are going to give you the best recommendations for recruiting software developers in 2023.
Tip #1: Be aware of the mandatory soft skills required
Soft skills are powerful drives in the performance of both workers and the company itself. These are the ones that allow people to work with each other in an effective way within the company.
For example, if performance-oriented is one of the company’s values, you must look for candidates with emotional intelligence who are capable of adjusting their emotions to carry out the objectives in the best way possible.
On the other hand, if the role for which you are looking candidates is remote, you must investigate and discover that effectively if they:
- feel comfortable working from home
- are good time managers
- complete responsibly with their tasks.
Taking the mandatory soft skills required in mind will save you time and money since you will hire candidates who correctly meet the soft skills that the company requires.
Tip #2: Follow the market trends
It is no secret that today’s IT market is super crowded; hence, we advise you to be up to date with the trends and find strategies to offer candidates what they are also looking for in a position.
Normally, great software developers look for the opportunity to work in a place where they feel comfortable and happy. That is to say, they look for a balance between compensation and quality of life.
Developers also seek to expand their knowledge beyond what they have already done. Therefore, it is important to let them know they can grow in your company. It is fundamental to let them know that they are being seen as individuals, who can express their opinions and work with the team effectively.
As recruiters, we are not only looking for people willing to come and contribute their knowledge and benefits to us, but we are also striving for their well-being and for them to gain positive benefits from us as well.
Tip #3: Good sourcing is key!
When we talk about sourcing we are talking about the power of “swimming” in the deepest pool of talent and people.
While we know that sometimes this is difficult, and can be exhausting, with these good tips you’re going to take the market head over heels!
In sourcing you need:
- Good communication skills
- An amazing profile on LinkedIn
- Being responsive
When you get all these requirements you’re ready to go!
Remember you need to stand out from the others and you will have the power to find the perfect fit for all your needs
Tip #4: Scheduling fast the interviews
We know how challenging the market can be, so that´s why we have the PERFECT tip to make everything easier.
The interviews for us (the recruiters) are the most important step of the process. If spend too much time organizing and scheduling, the developers may get discouraged or even drop out of the process. Due to this, we need to be able to organize interview times as fast, easy and agile as we can. With this the candidates see the commitment is real and our company is worth it.
After all, it is important to be very specific about the type of people ooking for and to be transparent towards them. Having a good work environment and culture helps a lot to attract candidates to your company.
