How to add contract work to a resume
As an employer, your goal is to get the right candidates in the door. That can be an especially challenging task when hiring technical talent. Not only do you need to attract people with the right technical skills, but also the soft skills that ensure a good fit.
Recruiting top IT talent is certainly no walk in the park. While it’s difficult to recruit employees in many different industries, IT recruiting comes with its own set of
challenges. The reality is that many IT positions need to be filled but not enough talent to fill them because there is a skills gap.
Also, IT professionals need to be targeted in a certain way. Cold calling various IT pros that you find on LinkedIn may not do the trick. You may have to think
out-of-the-box and figure out how you can attract them to your open positions.
There are more open job opportunities today than ever before. So, what does this mean for you as an employer? Essentially, a tight labor market makes it a greater challenge to attract great candidates.
