In the last ten years, the recruitment process has experienced an exponential evolution in the IT market. On one hand, more and more IT firms have made their recruitment more efficient, on the other hand, competition in the market is growing, and the candidates are getting better prepared.
The ideal candidate for recruitment in this competitive context, beyond the actual technical training and the working experience with which a candidate comes, it is necessary to have the ability to become “sellable.”
According to one of the best IT recruiting firms, there are certain features of a candidate that makes the difference in recruitment. It is important to note that these features are essential both for recruitment and especially afterward in the programming’s development activity.
Not only in IT recruitment but generally valid, professionalism is of overwhelming importance. It is the first element pursued by the recruiter and, at the same time, the most important. Generally, a candidate who professionally processes the recruitment process (responds accurately to the recruiter’s questions, observes the set hours, knows to recruit the recruiter, asks for additional information if he wants to find new details about the job or the client, documents himself concerning the activity of the employer before taking part in an interview with him, etc.), will be treated professionally.
Assessment and self-assessment capacity
It is imperative for a candidate to accurately assess their skills, be aware of their abilities and potential, as well as their vulnerabilities. It is also preferable for a candidate to have the ability to assess the job he is applying for accurately. Most of the time, such a candidate knows if the “right man” is in the “right place,” and if that happens, collaboration can only be profitable for both parties. Moreover, this ability to correctly assess different situations will help him/her as an employee to adequately estimate the duration of their work tasks. Click here.
Trust communicated to others
A candidate gets employed if he transmits the necessary confidence to the employer. As scheduling is teamwork, the fruits are only seen if each member of the team performs their tasks professionally, and the faith generated within the group plays a vital role in the success of the developed project.
Excellent communication ability
It is vital for a candidate to be natural, serious, and especially communicative during the recruitment process. Although at first sight, the IT field does not require “good orators,” a good programmer must have the ability to communicate with colleagues in the project team, the project manager or even the client.
The dynamics of the information domain reflected in the dynamics of projects, technologies, and work teams require flexible people capable of adapting to the new requirements of the IT market.
The interest shown
An open candidate, willing to build a constructive dialogue and learn new employment opportunities, will always be preferred to the detriment of other candidates. Such a typology of the candidate will be open to new challenges that can arise in his professional activity, being able to look at them with confidence and enthusiasm.
In conclusion, a good candidate with maximum chances of success in recruitment, which is different from other candidates, is the one who manages to incorporate these characteristics. However, more than being an “ideal” candidate, he will be a programmer that any IT service company will want to have in the project team, coming up with tempting offers to do so.
Regarding technical evaluation, written tests or online tests are used, with varying degrees of difficulty and pursuing, besides the correctness of the answer, the adaptability of the candidate to the inevitable questions of the technical assessor but also the analytical capacities and the orientation towards the results.
