How to Find and Attract Tech Talent

If you are searching for technical talent, you are aware of how challenging it is. The market for tech candidates is only getting more competitive as time goes on. Developers are not likely to return your calls or respond to InMails on LinkedIn®.

This class covers the best ways to locate technical talent online to help you find potential candidates that others won't and attract passive candidates' attention. It also covers valuable points for communicating with hiring managers regarding position requirements and appealing job descriptions.

Want to take your sourcing skills in IT Recruiting to the next level?

The first step is learning the terminology. If you are starting out or short of time, there are tools to help you "parse" a candidate's skills. Armed with the programming language names and technical terms, you can start searching.

The next step is learning the resources. Github has tens of millions of developers as users, but searching the site is tricky. We will show you how to find profiles and resumes for your target professionals on Github, as well as how to find (almost) any Github member's email address. We will also cover sourcing in several other sites where Developers "hang out" online.

The final step is putting all the pieces together. You cannot restrict your searches to any one site. We will demonstrate how to cross-reference professional data from all your sources.
