IT recruiting companies need to be aware of where their IT staffing competitors are looking for candidates, as well as where candidates are posting their resumes themselves. You may think everyone is just using job boards such as Monster or CareerBuilder. However, there are many more options depending on what specific IT staffing industry you are looking at. Some of these options are websites such as LinkedIn and Twitter that are now being used for networking instead of socializing. Others include niche websites and/or those specific to local geographies.
So how do you choose the right place to look for candidates to fill IT jobs? To start, you need to test some of these websites out. During the trial period it would be a good idea to keep track of where the candidates are coming from. This will help you decide how many candidates you got from each IT job board and the quality of the candidates coming from each. Once you gather your data, you will be able to analyze each IT job board based on metrics IT recruiting companies keep in mind.
