IT recruitment process

The recruitment process is the series of steps a company follows to find a suitable candidate for a position.

People are often interested in the recruitment process and what it takes to get an applicant through different steps of the process. I wanted to describe our experience and give you some tips on how you may be able to ‘game the system’.

Below you will find the IT recruitment process of MindHunt.

Stage 1. Define your target candidate

IT recruitment process starts from the following. Based on several questions we’ll discover your real recruiting needs.

As a result, after this short session, we both have a clear vision of the open position, requirements, responsibilities, compensation package, and other job-related details

Stage 2. Search map

At this stage, we map out industries and companies where we are going to look for ideal candidates for you.

This helps you to have the right candidates in your office as soon as possible.

This is a very important part of IT recruiting process because before beginning of search, you have to understand the map.

Stage 3. Target candidate magnet

Based on the information you provide we at IT recruitment agency MindHunt create a document which does two jobs: describes your open position and sell it to potential candidates.

It is like a job description on steroids.

Stage 4. Advanced candidates identification machine

At this stage, we have all the information we need to start deep market research, name identification, approaching the best candidates available on the market and presenting your career opportunity in a most attractive manner

Stage 5. Comprehensive interview system

With your recruiting needs in mind, we use our proven system for qualifying potential candidates, including preliminary screenings and personal interviews in order to discover the skills, motivation, and commitment of candidates.

As a result, you RECEIVE the best talents available on the market and do not waste your time on unqualified candidates.

Stage 6. Accepted job offer generator

After you and the candidate show mutual interest and are ready for the next step we help you generate a job offer that will satisfy both your budget and the candidate’s salary expectations.

Stage 7. Counteroffer prevention system.

Now you may think that when the job offer is accepted then the deal is closed… Not really. Because the current employer will DO attempts to retain the person. But here we use our special ‘counteroffer prevention system’ and advice your candidate how to build a conversation with the current manager about resignation and how to react if they try to retain him/her.

How to implement this process?
