Need Tech Talent? Here are Some Places to Look…

With national unemployment at roughly 4% and unemployment in IT occupations at closer to 2%, finding the tech talent you need for your business can feel impossible.  Most IT professionals are already employed and are likely being compensated well and are aware that they are in high demand.  Tracking down talented IT individuals is not as simple as posting a job description and waiting for applicants to come to you.  If you are struggling to find talented IT individuals, consider looking for them in the following places:

  • GitHub – home to the world’s largest community of developers and their projects, this development platform provides a variety of ways for developers to work on projects and connect
  • HackerOnethis vulnerability coordination and bug bounty platform connects businesses with cybersecurity researchers; their leaderboard and community platform allow a variety of ways to connect and engage with top cybersecurity experts
  • Hackfests or hackathons – hosting, sponsoring, or sending some of your internal team members to a hackathon is a great opportunity to come together with other awesome people for collaborative software development in a fun and social environment, meet industry professionals, and build your tech talent network 
  • Industry conferences and local events – review NCTA, MeetUp.com, or your local chambers of commerce to find events near you
  • Open Source projects – there are dozens of places online to find thousands of open source projects, where people passionate about tech are collaborating, communicating, and working together to improve and develop software on a publicly accessible platform
