The Definitive Guide to Skills-based Technical Recruiting
Technical recruiters need a better way to source technical talent. Resume-based recruiting is inefficient and time-consuming because you can’t measure skills on a resume. Modern hiring teams are transitioning to skills-based recruiting. This type of recruiting eliminates unconscious bias and reveals ‘hidden gem’ candidates that would likely be missed when a recruiter is searching through resumes using keywords, education and work history as criteria. Skills-based recruiting starts with pre-qualified candidates and can result in great improvement in the hiring funnel, including an increase in the onsite to offer rate by as much as 10-15 points above the industry average of 20-25%.
