Do you need to know how to code to hire developers?
Recruiting a project manager, a sales professional, or a digital marketing specialist is a piece of cake compared to recruiting programmers.
Why? Because in almost every other position, the candidate has solid evidence of their competency and that they’re a perfect fit for the role.
Numbers, profits made in a year for their last company, a set of marketing strategies they’ve mastered, and easy-to-understand proof of their skills.
However, when you’re met with 50 different programmers who’ve all managed to pass the same coding test and create the same applications, only with 50 different coding methods, how do you know which one to hire?
And you’re not alone, as almost 9 out of 10 HR professionals say they find hiring technical talent difficult.
For all you know, they could all be the one you’re looking for, which makes the decision infinitely harder to make, with endless factors going into each candidate's quality, style, and experience level.
Let’s have a look at your options...
For starters, you can try to go full-on DIY mode and analyze every single code, how it was written, whether they are using conventional methods or free-styling, and whether or not their skill set matches your position.
However, this doesn’t always work, as it extends the hiring time by weeks and doesn’t guarantee accurate results. And in 2019, only 6.4% of developers were unemployed, and the number is only going down, so you need to act fast.
Is hiring someone to do it for you the next best thing?
Not really, especially if your project is on a larger scale, which means more potential candidates to go through, a higher price to pay, and not much in return.
And as a recruiter, you have a lot to lose; however, the person you’re hiring is getting paid to analyze, not to ensure you hire the right person for the job.
Especially after Covid19, with 89% of organizations now recruiting virtually, you need to nail the connection and character judgment from the first try.
That’s on you; if that’s not done correctly, your career is on the line.
