Challenges in A Successful Tech Hiring

Technology has revolutionized almost every industry of the economy. There is a requirement for more IT professionals with different skills than their availability.

1.     Traditional and non-traditional Developers

Around 74% of recruiters face this issue. Partly, this is due to unavailability of enough candidates for tech roles and partially due to lack of requisite tech skill, experience, academic qualification defined by companies. Companies need to remove IT 4-year-degree requirements. It will open the path to a huge number of possible candidates and may be well qualified for your company's requirements. Companies are increasingly offering internal training to non-traditional developers to fill tech positions.

2.     Pursue passive candidates

Here is the need of attracting them so that passive candidates consider the vacancy in your company.
