Depending on the career path you chose in the IT staffing industry, you may find yourself always moving. Your office ends up being anywhere you can sit down with internet access. So how can you get your work done in a timely fashion while keeping other IT recruiters in the loop?
Here are a few tips to help those mobile IT staffing workers:
Since you are always on the go, you want to make sure that you have everything you need. In order to keep connected with your emails and send important documents, you need to be able to get Wi-Fi access. Some IT recruiters Boston choose to pay for wireless internet on their mobile phone. However, another option is finding free Wi-Fi access or even tethering your cellphone. Whichever you prefer, this should provide you with the ability to access the internet in most areas.
Additional locations that make great hot spots are coffee shops. You can relax a bit and have a coffee while you recruit or email with clients. If you need a quieter location, you may want to try going to a library. There is usually one in every town and most likely will be emptier during work hours.
Another tool that is essential for technical recruiters on the move is having a portal where you can access files and documents. One such location is called Dropbox. If you are always on the go, you do not want to be carrying around flashdrives or external hard drives to store your information safely. This will allow you to easily save your files online while sending them to your coworkers without much effort.
If you plan on being a mobile technical recruiter, make sure you take a look at all of your options so you don’t miss out on any IT recruiting needs. You do not want to be stuck in a location without the ability to access the internet or in a place that doesn’t allow you to access your files.
