When researching candidates with a strong Web-programming background, it’s important to note which languages they mention in their C.V. and social-media profiles. While many languages go into creating Websites and applications, a few are regarded as “core” to working in the online realm. If a candidate isn’t knowledgeable about them, you may want to look elsewhere. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of Web developer jobs will only grow over the next seven years. It’s already difficult for many firms to find and hire top talent, which means that those candidates with the right mix of skills and experience can demand quite a bit in salaries and perks. Finding entry-level talent is a little easier, given the number of people out there with Web-development skills—but make sure that any candidate has these skills in place.
