Technical Recruiting Demystified

If you’re confused about the whole recruiting scene, this will help provide a little clarity. On 10/3, David Graziano, technical recruiter for GE, joined us for a weekly #TCFchat on twitter at 3pm ET.

Dave and our panel discussed the difference between external recruiters and internal recruiters as well as internal recruiters and HR. We also chatted about how candidates should approach the resume and job search differently based on the type of recruiter that’s in place. In addition, much discussion centered around the role of social media in the recruiting process. This included the use of social media from the perspective of the job seeker as well as the technical recruiter.

Challenges HR faces enabling IT and tech departments

Posted on August 23, 2012. Filed under: CIO, Recruiting, Salary, Technology | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Our #TCFchat discussion this week (held 8/22 on Twitter at 3pm Eastern) was centered on the unique challenges that HR faces when working with tech departments, particularly IT. Many IT folks feel that HR doesn’t do nearly enough to support them properly, especially when it comes to hiring and retention. Is this perception or reality?

Here are the discussion points:

1. How do HR professionals keep up with the emerging trends to properly recruit, hire, and develop?

2. How often does HR need to review and update job descriptions, compensation, etc.?

3. How does HR keep its policies and procedures up to date?

4. HR is a roadblock to success for the IT department…perception or reality?

5. Many IT executives believe HR doesn’t invest enough in developing talent internally? How is this problem solved and is promoting from within the answer?
