  • What should you pay attention to when you evaluate a candidate?
  • What is the recommended approach to pre-screening the candidates?
  • Should a tech recruiter have some basic knowledge of technologies they specialize on?
  • How to evaluate the culture fit of the tech candidates to know that they will fit your company?
  • So what is your preferred channel of communication: calls, emails or messengers? Or is it a combination of them?

“I really think a big part of the problem in our tech talent shortage is that we’re not placing the assessment in the right place of the funnel. In other words, we front-load too much of the assessment. We’re trying to work out whether this person is a great developer for our business or our clients, but we really don’t have the chops to do that. We are great recruiters. But we’re not developers. And we need to start accepting that we do not really have the ability to do an in-depth evaluation of this person.”
