Developers are responsible for building and maintaining functional software, and are in high demand for various industries. Here’s how to find quality candidates:
For European candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
Found a profile you like? Gather as much information as you can before sending a recruiting email so your message is more personal. Mention what qualifications caught your attention and why you think they’ll be a good fit for your open role.
Avoid buzzwords, keep your message straightforward and don’t over hype it.
Developers are in high demand and have lots of options. They need compelling reasons to consider your company. Are you working on a project within their field of expertise? Do you offer special benefits to your engineering team? Mention something that would intrigue the specific person you’re contacting to get them to look your way.
Be sure to provide all relevant information (your name, your company and contact details) and a clear call to action. And if this is an EU candidate, make sure to include a link to your privacy notice as the GDPR requires.
