Tech professionals are hard to find and they are hard to hire as well, most of the good candidates already been hired by the good companies. Techies are high in demand and less in quantity. It is expected that there would be 2 million programming jobs by 2020. Due to the shortage of talent, it has become difficult to fit the right candidate at the right place.
If we look at the things on a broader level, there are many unemployed talents in India who are not able to find a job at the right place. Along with the shortage of talent, candidates are facing difficulty in finding an accurate job which is actually creating a gap between the talent and the opportunities in the market.
For filling jobs with accurate talent, it is important to bridge the gap between the organization and the candidate. A scarcity of talent is confined on the particular platform for a candidate looking for a job.
Normally candidate uses traditional methods for finding a job such as referral drives, walk-ins, applying on job portals and social networking sites. Most on these platforms a candidate land up in the wrong situation, for instance, the job location is 30km far from the candidate’s place, then also it is not right for the candidate to join the job.
Companies should rely on digitization for initiating recruitment process as it saves lots of time and provides accurate information. This gap can be reduced by online assessments such as providing a link to the candidate with the proper link till then the link expires or cognitive Tests, Emotional Intelligence, etc.
This process would be helpful for the organization to connect with the quality candidate and helpful in handling bulk candidates at a time.
