Recruiting Strategies for Finding Suitable Engineer Candidates
8 July, 2019
Recruiting engineers for a company can vary from organization to organization. This is because there are factors that come into play like company culture, finances, and location, just to name a few. Yet, from my experience, I have continued to use a couple of strategies that have proven to be the most successful across the board.
Recruiting is a lot of work. Of course there is scouting on LinkedIn, but you should also organize events, write and speak about how you do things at your company, and go to meetups. It's a lot of face-to-face interactions so that people get to know you and your organization, and become interested enough to want to join your team.
