Message from Founder

Hello! I am Vadim Lobarev, Founder of IT recruitment agency MindHunt.

I started in IT recruiting back to 2005 and my first search was Senior C# Developer and requirements were 2+ years of experience with C# or 5+ years of experience with C++. I worked only 1 month in recruiting and knew close to nothing about recruiting.

My first step was to buy and read the book “Visual C++ for dummies”. Why? Because I wanted to better understand the nature of job I needed to fill and people who do this job in order to speak with them on the same language as much as I can.

Definitely it hasn’t made a software programmer from me… but it allowed me to better understand what software programmers do. Anyway… I struggled with filling vacancies because It was hard to find suitable candidates, sell them vacancy and qualify them. So I had to learn different recruiting strategies and technics from best recruiters in the world. I read books and took trainings… and then tested what I learned in real world to see what happen.

My recruiting results were improving and finally I discovered ultimate recruiting system which worked pretty well and always delivered great results when I used it.

Then I founded recruitment agency MindHunt and started hiring recruiters to the team. I taught them this system so they were able to recruit excellent candidates as well. Using this system, we able to fill different IT vacancies for our clients from USA, Europe, Australia and Ukraine from entry level to top level positions, including Software Engineers, QA Engineers, UI/UX Designers, Technical Writers, System and Network Administrators, Software Architects, Business and System Analysts, Team Leaders, Project Managers, Development Managers, Directors and other.

BEFORE entrusting just any recruitment agency or employment agency in Kyiv, Ukraine you should arm yourself with the facts and get the real truth about common misconceptions surrounding choosing a recruitment agency to work with.

Here’s why this is SO IMPORTANT…

By knowing the facts surrounding common misconceptions in the recruitment industry, you can avoid costly rip-offs and mistakes and find an ethical and affordable IT recruitment agency in Ukraine that’s right for you.

We want to help clear away fear and confusion so that you can make an informed decision about choosing a recruitment agency that has the experience with vacancies of CIO, CTO, Software Developer, Web Developer, QA Engineer, Project Manager, Software Architect, etc.

We are here to help

If you’re feeling… confused about choosing an approach on how to find IT professionals by yourself… or through a recruitment agency, that’s right for you…

…OR frustrated with the lack of information you get about recruiting agencies in Ukraine and worried about a HUGE price-tag or bill…

…AND afraid that you will have to live without needed staff or with staff that does not perform well, because you have no time for recruiting or cannot find an affordable recruiting agency that you trust.

This article is PERFECT for you and I want you to rest assured that you’re not alone.

We are sure you probably can fill just about any position yourself, given enough time and effort.

New clients and business ventures

However, how much more profitable would your time be if you used that time to look into technology, mentor one of your junior managers, growing your business or pursue new clients and business ventures?

That’s why I want you to read this article that’s jam-packed with powerful, yet little-known facts that can keep smart companies – just like yours – from falling for common myths and mistakes surrounding recruitment.

I simply want to help as many people with recruiting issues as I can and that’s why right now, as promised, I’m going to share the top five misconceptions about recruitment in Ukraine, to help you stay completely informed about how to find IT professionals in Ukraine.

Misconception #1

We can find suitable employees just running ads on the internet

Did you know that according to LinkedIn only 30% of people are looking for a new job? So if you place an ad you can reach a maximum of 30% of the market.

What about the remaining 70% of the market?

One of our Clients, an international software development company, was looking for a Project Manager in Kyiv. They placed an ad on LinkedIn and received about 40 CVs. It takes time to screen all these CVs… though they engaged us to do this job. We did the screening and interviewed the best candidates from this list …but simultaneously looked for candidates through our sources.

As a result, our Client extended a job offer to the candidate, which we found through our sources.

Misconception #2

Recruitment agency is simply “CV sender”

…they just find a CV, do a short screening and forward it to clients.

You are right. There are recruiting agencies that work exactly how you described. But a professional recruitment agency works in the following manner:

  • Step 1: Sourcing, screening, and selection
  • Step 2: An acceptable job offer
  • Step 3: Counter Offer Prevention System

As a result, you don’t waste your time on the wrong candidates and interview only candidates which passed thorough selection process. Also, you can be sure that the candidate will accept your job offer and join your company according to starting date indicated in a job offer.

Misconception #3

We don’t need a Recruitment Agency because we have in-house recruiters

If your internal team is delivering the results that you want, then you shouldn’t use recruitment agencies.

So my question back to you is – “are they”?

If your inhouse team deliver great results, then kudos to you and I understand it. If they aren’t, then you have two issues, and your problems are actually bigger than you think. You not only still have open vacancy, but now you have dollars and resources being spent to manage an ineffective hiring team.

A professional recruitment agency can help you with both.

They can help you fill your vacancies, and then they can either help train your inhouse team to get better at attracting candidates, or you can outsource that function to them and achieve a whole new level of effectiveness.

Misconception #4

Fee of Recruitment Agency is too high

Consider that you actually do hire the wrong person. You have now invested time in recruiting, interviewing, training and then the potential to lose money on projects along with having to fire them…

…and then – worst of all – you have to start the hiring process all over again. Is saving a little money more important than the quality of the person you hire?

An IT recruitment agency assists you in hiring the best possible talent for an open position. What you are paying a recruitment agency to do is to identify, attract, evaluate and land the right person for you. Also, usually you have a free of charge replacement guarantee to give you time to make sure this IS the right hire, and ultimately you will realize that the cost of hiring the wrong person is MUCH greater than the fee associated with hiring the bullseye candidate.

Misconception #5

We’ve had a bad experience with recruiters in the past

…and we think all recruiters are the same. There are a lot of good ones and a few bad ones. I’ve had a bad experience with a mechanic – but that doesn’t mean that I’ll never take my car in again to get it fixed. It just means I won’t make the mistake of going back to that same mechanic again. I still need to maintain my vehicle; you just choose wiser next time when you pick a mechanic.

I hope using this information you will find a recruitment agency you want to work with. If you want us to help you find best candidates for your vacancies, please click the button bellow.

We are working with MindHunt for a couple of years and they helped us to identify, select and hire excellent IT specialists available on the market, including Ms Dynamics Nav Developers, .Net Developers, Test Engineers, System Engineers, Database and Business Intelligence professionals and many others. What I like in MindHunt is that they are able to understand exactly our recruiting needs AND fill vacancies for us in timely manner.

Yuriy Andrushchenko


Auditdata doesn’t have recruitment capabilities in-house, so really we were looking for a long-term partner rather than just another recruitment agency. MindHunt has demonstrated end-to-end customer focused recruitment approach, deep knowledge of the IT market and solid experience in recruitment. I believe our cooperation with MindHunt has been rather productive and we have managed to successfully close several complex positions for senior software, firmware & QA engineers together. I would be happy to recommend MindHunt for future clients.
