Employers in the IT industry
examine applicants in a variety of ways.
Mapping technical skills is one part
of it - and it can be a daunting idea for a job seeker. Do I have enough experience
to convince? Can I highlight my skills correctly? Do I need to have my own
projects to show?
Evaluating technical expertise
as part of the recruitment process is essential for both the employer and the
applicant. However, remember that it is not the same as a recruitment decision.
Still, it helps to form a realistic picture of the applicant's skills and thus,
for example, inform the employer how to personalize induction based on the
applicant's skills. In addition, technical mapping makes it possible to
highlight know-how more than just an application.
The topic will be discussed in the podcast by Elina Salo, Head of Talent Acquisition at Frends, and Henri Tunkkari and Jaan Taponen from Aalto University's Computer Science guild. They bring the perspective of software developers in the early stages of their careers to the discussion. From Frends R&D, we have Software Engineer Ossi Galkin.
Listen to the podcast and stop
stressing - it's going well, especially when you know what to expect.
