#TChat Preview: How Tech Pros Can Help Assess and Hire Tech Pros

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 20, 2016, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).

Last week we talked about why the best recruitment means smarter workforce marketing, and this week we’re going to talk about how tech pros can help assess and hire tech pros.

In the world of recruiting, experts are a little more difficult to define. The exception to this rule is in the field of technology. The tech field is based on those who have real-world, developed, sought-after skills.

True technical expertise is difficult to find, even as it is increasingly needed in today’s rich digital economy. With companies increasingly relying on their employees’ technical acumen, it has become more important than ever to make quick, accurate hiring decisions.

Studies have shown that the cost of a bad hire can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. The cost of onboarding and training an employee that turns out not to have the technical skill level needed to complete their job is not only disheartening, but wastes valuable resources.

These are the many reasons why you need seasoned technical experts to help you hire your tech pros today.
