There’s no way to sugarcoat it: Tech hiring is hard, whether you’re new to tech recruiting or a tech hiring superstar. In fact, employers use an average of five different resources to fuel their tech talent search.
And even though there’s been a heavier emphasis on more (and faster) tech skills training in recent years, top-notch tech candidates can still be elusive, with recruiters commonly referring to them as “purple squirrels.”
So to figure out how companies piece everything together to make great hires (and help you supercharge your tech hiring along the way), we surveyed hundreds of technical recruiters, sourcers and hiring managers on the hunt for this rare talent.
In our new report, Solving the tech talent puzzle: How companies (of all sizes) make great hires, we take a snapshot of what tech hiring looks like in 2019, revealing the major differences (and overlaps) when it comes to hiring tech talent at micro-companies with a handful of employees all the way to enterprise companies with 500+.
Using this survey data, in combination with Indeed’s treasure trove of tech job posting data, we’ll uncover intriguing insights about tech hiring in a time when the tech skills gap is starting to close, including:
- The core tech roles that all companies are hiring for—regardless of size
