Attracting and hiring top tech talent isn’t easy in this competitive, candidate oriented market.
The paradigm has shifted and gone are the days when it was a predominantly employers oriented market.
In order to succeed in the race for technology talent, employers have to align their interview practice. They need to coach their hiring managers to present their best foot forward while interviewing technology talent.
That’s why these three tips should never be ignored:
Tip #1 – Tell your organizational story
Share with candidates your technology transformation journeys, the roadmap that you have. Help them see the bigger picture so they can make a decision and choose you over nimble startups.
Tip #2 – Purpose over pay
Explain the project purpose early on in the interview and explain to them how the project or the role creates an impact on the overall organization.
Today’s talent is looking for more than just a job. They want to see how their work is creating an impact on the organization and its customers.
Tip #3 – Interviews are a two-way street
As much as you are interviewing the candidate, they are interviewing you as well. Put your best foot forward and provide them with an opportunity to ask questions.
Provide feedback to all unsuccessful interview candidates.
It may take an extra 30 minutes of your time during the hiring process. However, it will leave a long-lasting impact on the talent community.
