How To Find and Attract Technical Talent
If you're looking for top-tier technical talent, you know the challenges that come with it. The tech job market is more competitive than ever, and reaching out to developers may seem futile. But fear not; we're here to help. Our comprehensive class is designed to equip you with the necessary skills to locate the best tech talent online, including potential candidates others may miss. We'll teach you the art of crafting appealing job descriptions and effective communication with hiring managers.
Are you ready to take your IT recruiting skills to the next level? The first step is to master the terminology. By learning the programming language names and technical terms, you can effectively parse a candidate's skills and improve your searches.
Once you have the language down, it's time to dive into the resources. With tens of millions of developers as users, GitHub is a goldmine for tech talent, but it can be tricky to navigate. Our class will show you how to find profiles and resumes of your target professionals on GitHub and find (almost) any GitHub member's email address. We'll also cover other sites where developers "hang out" online to expand your reach.
Lastly, we'll demonstrate how to cross-reference professional data from all your sources to find the perfect candidate. No single site is enough, and we'll show you how to combine all the pieces for maximum success.
