As 2014 wound down, IT hiring rates climbed, so if you aren’t finding any employees, there might be some problems on your end.

Hi, and welcome to the APN Consulting video blog!

Despite the difficulties that many organizations face when hiring IT staff members, there are plenty of candidates just waiting to seize the perfect role. The solution to your challenges might lie in some new strategies and approaches. Here are some dos and don’ts of IT hiring.

Do look up job applicants on social media networks. Don’t force prospective employees to hand over their social media information.

Do search for candidates with skills that match your job listing. Don’t hold out for that perfect individual. He or she might never arrive.

Do seek a culture fit when interviewing applicants. Don’t hesitate to have a coworker speak to prospective employees as well. Different opinions are important.

Do take multi-channeled approaches to finding new applicants. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket with a single candidate. Always have a second choice if the first doesn’t accept an offer.
