Do you get Job Descriptions from hiring managers and have no clue who they are looking for? 😱 What are the key IT skills to search for when interviewing candidates?
Can't you distinguish between unnecessary "fluff" and highlights of a candidate skills?
Do you wonder what a particular IT professional actually does at work… and there is nobody around to ask? 🤔
Well, the IT world can be so confusing... full of IT terms, acronyms, synonyms, buzzwords, trending topics and small details.
And you don't want to look like a fool when interacting with software developers so you prefer to BE SILENT. You just copy-paste the JD from a hiring manager to some public job board hoping for the best…
There is NO STRATEGY and little added value!
Since you don't know much about the IT roles, you don't know where to source potential candidates or how to attract them... so you just keep sending messages on LN all day long.
IT’S NO FUN, RIGHT? 🤔
This is not the cool job you bought into...
Even if you find the right IT candidates or you have a list of them at hand, how to match them with job opportunities if you don't know what is essential for each role?
What tools, programming languages and software frameworks do they actually use? 🤔

You can shift from being an "amateur" IT recruiter to a professional who is eventually a trusted advisor to hiring managers.
