This summer, we conducted a survey among tech professionals and developers in Berlin. With its help, we were aiming to learn more about recruitment in technology.
We’ve got some interesting insights and put together a PDF brochure for you, contact us and we can email it to you. In it, you’ll find the information on the following:
- Reach-outs from recruiters: quantity & quality
- Recruitment process: the pains & joys
- Testing tech skills: useful vs. useless ways to do it
- Job offer: what makes it "unrefusable"
In the paper, you’ll find survey results from engineers, figures, insights, and quotes. Here are a few highlights:
- Tech professionals like developers in Berlin get on average of 18 messages from recruiters monthly. This figure changes with experience and across technologies...
- Almost ¾ of messages come from agency recruiters. Regardless of the type of recruiters (in-house or third-party), their reach-outs were not always relevant to developers and engineers.
- Time-consuming test assignments and the duration of the entire recruitment process are what stresses job seekers in tech the most. And not only that.
- An efficient (fast and relevant) recruitment process is most likely to leave a good and memorable impression on tech candidates. There is more to it.
- Developers and engineers in Berlin value technical interviews the most. Can you guess what, according to some of them, is a waste of time?
