Need for tech talent on the rise; professionals offer staffing tips

Midlands Business Journal – September 16, 2016

With the technology industry growing at a rapid pace, the need for new tech talent is on the rise. Bruce Peterson, regional manager at Aureus Group, an affiliate of C&A Industries, said companies are turning to the aggressive direct recruitment of individuals versus the “post and pray” passive methods traditionally employed in corporate environments. “Much of the talent is not actively seeking a change of employment so they have to be enticed into considering a new opportunity,” he said. Bruce Peterson said the demand for mid-level to senior developers has remained constant for many years. “Java and .Net are the two platforms consistently requested by our client base,” Peterson said. “However, full-stack Web developers with strong experience in a variety of JavaScript frameworks are coveted as well.” He said quality assurance and testing (automated) are on the rise, as companies find maintenance and support savings with better testing early and often. “The pool of active candidates is small,” he said. “Get aggressive and make yourself attractive to passive candidates.”
