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

Last week we talked about why the best recruitment means smarter workforce marketing, and this week we talked 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, of course, the field of technology. The tech field is based on those that 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 employee’s technical acumen it has become more important than ever to make quick, accurate hiring decisions.

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 it costs valuable resources. Studies have shown that the cost of a bad hire can run into the tens of thousands of dollars.

That’s why you need seasoned technical experts to help you hire your tech pros today.

Kevin Rooney, CEO of Expert Interview, joined us and shared a wide variety of knowledge on technology, recruiting and more.

It was a lively #TChat podcast and Twitter conversation on a topic that’s very relevant to organizations of all sizes across industries.
