The relationship between tech candidates and recruiters
Dice recently partnered with the Partnership for Public Service and TMP Government to host the “Mission-Critical Occupations: Build Your Agency Talent Pipeline” interactive workshop. Recruiters from the public sector were provided the tools and information needed to identify and hire mission-critical talent.
- Only 50% of survey respondents said that they wish recruiters would do more research on them and their background before calling, as compared to 63% in 2013. This is the only category in which we saw a significant decline. Since 2013, recruiters have used tools like Open Web to get a 360-degree view of a candidate.
- Tech candidates understand that recruiters use publicly available data to research candidates and get a “total person” view before making that first call to provide a better candidate experience.
