What is IT recruiting?

IT recruiting is a strategic process that aims to identify, attract, and hire qualified professionals in the field of information technology. This involves considering both technical and soft skills to ensure that candidates are not only technically competent but also fit well within the team. The process includes creating compelling job postings, searching for suitable candidates on various platforms, screening applications, conducting interviews, and ultimately selecting and hiring the most suitable candidates. IT recruiting is particularly crucial in an industry that is constantly evolving and where the competition for skilled professionals is high. Effective IT recruiting can contribute to attracting the right talent to advance a company’s technological goals and projects.

Welche Assessments werden im Recruiting-Prozess eingesetzt?

Our goal is to deliver candidate profiles that closely align with the requirements, thereby conserving resources and ensuring sustainable placements for our clients.

To achieve this, we’ve integrated a three-stage assessment process into our recruitment strategy:

Unlocking skilled and dedicated talent on a large scale is our commitment with our Recruiting as a Service (RaaS) solution. If your resources for targeted active sourcing are limited and conventional job platforms aren’t yielding the right candidates, then RaaS is the perfect model to fill your recruitment pipeline with suitable applicants.

To kick off our partnership, we’ll collaborate on refining the desired profile in a briefing session, getting acquainted with your company and its employer brand. Once our recruiting experts have crafted the profile, our AI-powered system identifies the most suitable candidates in your desired region. We then conduct a semi-automated outreach across multiple channels, all within 24 hours of our initial briefing.

Once we’ve sparked interest in candidates for your open positions, we meticulously assess their profiles for hard skills, salary expectations, and any other pertinent criteria you specify. This ensures that you only receive applications from candidates who meet your requirements. We’ll present this information to you in a concise profile, allowing you to take the reins from there.
