The talent market for service-oriented architecture is competitive and getting tighter by the day. With tech unemployment at historic lows and a well-documented skill gap, it can feel impossible to find talent to support your SOA projects. However, with the right approach – and the right technical staffing partner – your organization can overcome these challenges and find the talent you need.
How Traditional Recruiting Impacts SOA Hiring
The skills gap and the tight talent market make hiring a challenge. There are skilled SOA professionals out there who are willing to make a move but most companies don’t know how to access that talent. If you’re taking a traditional, reactionary approach to hiring SOA pros, you’re probably struggling. Waiting until a role opens to find talent, posting listings online and waiting for people to apply is a recipe for failure. If you wish to attract top talent, you must go out and put yourself in front of passive candidates to convince them to make a move to your company.
However, identifying talent is only half the battle. Recruiting passive talent isn’t easy. It takes time and it takes finesse. You have to know how to build relationships and when to make a move presenting an offer. Complicating things even further are ever-increasing salary levels and the fact that it is truly a job-seeker’s market. Talented people have their pick of nearly any job they want, and candidates are dictating their own terms for success.
