Recruiting… recruiting… recruiting…
It’s all everyone in my world talks about.
And I get it.
But once every six months or so I write a post here about retention… a reminder that we’re all recruiting IT pros and they have to come from somewhere… they don’t grow on trees.
A portion of them can be found:
- as recent college or coding school grads
- as they convert from contracting and consulting to full time status
- as they relocate to the area
Most of them of are already working at another company and whether they find us through job posts, our career page, referrals, networking or we are recruiting them…. they are moving around in larger numbers than a year ago.
You hear it at user groups (from Dev’s), a frequent topic during Twin Cities Startup Week (CIO’s, Recruiters and Dev’s) and again this past weekend at Twin Cities Code Camp (from Dev’s).
