Selection of IT-specialists is one of the most difficult recruiting directions

The selection of IT-specialists rightly considered one of the most difficult areas of recruiting. This is due to the fact that information workers often have their own, unique view of the world. In addition, IT specialists often have some problems with communication. But what should I do? How to properly conduct it recruiting? Kiev and its recruiting agency "Gloria" gave us answers to these questions and below we hasten to share the information with you.
 
So, first and foremost, it is very, very important to properly organize communication with a potential applicant for this or that IT post. It is important to take into account two points. The first point is that most IT professionals are extremely laconic people. Therefore, both the application for the selection of a specialist and the questionnaire should be designed in such a way that a potential candidate can answer questions succinctly, briefly and concisely. Clearly understand for yourself that an IT specialist is not an advertiser or a manager, he does not need eloquence in his work. So do not demand and do not expect detailed answers when talking with such people.
 
For your information: with special reluctance and cautiousness, information industry professionals are concerned with questions about their personal lives. Therefore, it is worthwhile to either avoid them altogether, or to exercise maximum delicacy in this respect.
 
The second point is extremely important and that the questions are logically related. This, of course, is not the most important requirement for conducting a dialogue with a potential candidate for an IT post. But, believe me, it will be much easier for a person in this industry to answer you questions if the next one logically follows from the previous one. This requirement is related to the specifics of the IT work, where everything is logically interconnected.
 
Since IT specialists, which is understandable from the above, are by no means always excellent masters of the "conversational genre", the recruiting agency "Gloria", which, we recall, also professionally performs and it recruiting (Kiev), advises to ask the candidates for references to their previous projects, works. And even if you yourself can not really understand the level of the solved problem, the desire and willingness to immediately give you the result of past works will already tell you a lot.
 
If we return to the part of the interview, then the ideal solution is to enlist the support of experienced specialists during such a conversation. Why? In addition to the above nuances, there is a chance that you will not be able to find a common language with a potential candidate also because he will simply use the usual and perfectly understandable terms in his speech. You can not know anything about these terms. In theory, of course, you can spend some time on preliminary training and try at least superficially to get acquainted with the industry whose specialist you need. But, in fact, it's much simpler and more correct to apply if not to another IT-technician (perhaps, in your state already has such an expert), then to a profile recruiting company whose main direction of work is the provision of "IT profile personnel" service.
 
If you appeal to specialists for some reason ... If you think that an interview and a properly drawn up application for the selection of a specialist in the field of information technology is easy and easy, at least do not hesitate to ask the candidate for unintelligible moments during communication. Well, as for the above-mentioned application and the main rules when drafting it, then, in order not to get trapped, "peek" the right samples from the company, the main profile of which is the provision of the "IT staff profile" service.
