Recruiting a Great IT Team

November 29th, 2016

Regardless of whether or not you are an IT company, your staff uses technology every day as part of your operations. For this reason, it’s important to have an IT team that can not only help you in times of need but can also proactively fix problems. Here’s how you can recruit a great IT team.

Attend College Job Fairs.

One great way to recruit an outstanding IT team is to attend college job fairs. You can make an effort to talk to Computer Science or IT Management graduates to maximize your time there. These new graduates will be hungry for experience as they transition to the next phase of their lives and will be willing to work hard.

Reach Out to Coding Bootcamps.

A lot of people are making an effort to learn how to code because they know how important it is. What most people don’t know, however, is how needed basic IT skills are in a company. You can always reach out to coding boot camps to see if any of their graduates are looking for a job that has components both of web development and IT tech support.

Implement a Test in the Hiring Process.

Your technology is only as good as your IT team, and that’s why you need to make sure that your new recruits can respond to challenges on the fly. As part of the hiring process, you should implement a series of challenges that could potentially come up in the role of an IT manager. Then, you should see how long it takes your recruits to fix the problem and make decisions based on that.
