Have you ever been asked to fill a role that has such narrow specifications and qualifications that it seems almost impossible to find someone? They are really looking for a unicorn and it isn't easy

Plenty of times unfortunately . If you don’t already have market data to hand to show the client that what they are looking for may not exist then the first stage is to carry out a thorough search and map out target companies and approach and speak to identified candidates. The output from these conversations should produce live market data that you can then share with the client . The client should now be more receptive to finding areas of the spec where a compromise needs to be made to increase the pool. Good luck !

Life of a recruiter! Yes, pull data & screen instead of screening out candidates. Schedule a recruiting hour with the hiring manager, set up a LinkedIn search & go through it together.

What are the requirements? I’m curious

Get on a video call with them and live source some candidates on LinkedIn (you’ll show them with data the pool is small). If you find a profile they like, through it into the “ideal candidate - find more candidates like this” filter. Showing them what is actually available in the wild will help set their expectations.

If it’s tech, I’d then get onto medium, Twitter, stackoverflow, Reddit, ect to start finding a diamond in the rough to show the HM if I can reel them in.

Then, if I can’t get them / anyone we find meets their reset expectations. If I can reel something incredible, it feels 10x as good.

Thrill of the chase with an exit plan 😉

Good Morning all,

Since I pivoted into TA (from the Wild West known as Finance) Tech Recruiting has always been the goal. But I’m having a hard time finding a way to get into that space (I do understand there’s a hiring crisis). Nevertheless, does anyone know of tech companies that are hiring? I may be low on the experience side so I’m willing to look at contract/ entry roles as well. Also, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
