How do I know the skills of a candidate?
If you want to know specific skills that a candidate has, use a professional sourcing tool like AmazingHiring. It automatically searches for the right candidates across 50+ sources (like Linkedin, Github, Stackoverflow, Facebook) and provides information on what skills they have and also sources with direct contacts of the programmers.
Moreover, it also covers “passive candidates”– those who don’t post resumes on the job boards. Thanks to AmazingHiring, recruiters do not need specific knowledge for tech recruiting – just set the initial parameters to get the best match!
You can start by testing AmazingHiring’s free Chrome extension to find skills of the candidates you are interested in by sourcing their social and professional networks.
