Specialized Information Technology Executive Recruitment
Over the last 15 years, successful executive recruitment has undergone a dramatic evolution. No longer content to engage broad-based search firms (i.e., ABC Executive Search), top performing candidates have expressed a strong desire to partner, almost exclusively, with highly specialized (and networked) recruiters who are true subject-matter experts.
These “passive” job seekers place significantly more emphasis on the recruiter’s knowledge of and experience with a particular role and less on their background within a particular industry (e.g., healthcare, non-profit, technical services, consumer goods, etc.).
Placing the Nation's Top Technology Leaders
We are in the midst of a candidate-driven market. This has never been more apparent than in the area of Information Technology where employer competition for outstanding leadership talent is at an all-time high. Companies of all sizes and industries are struggling to tackle this critical recruitment challenge that is in no way aided by the fact that top performers are less inclined to respond to recruiter solicitations than they ever have been in the past two decades.
Online job postings and help wanted ads, notorious for delivering huge volumes of resumes, rarely attract the attention of top performers. The adoption of LinkedIn by recruiters (both corporate and agency alike) as the predominant candidate engagement platform (94% utilization in 2017) has created an environment in which IT leaders are being constantly bombarded with offers of employment. As a result, these intensely sought-after candidates have almost universally adopted a “don’t call me, I’ll call you” attitude.
That being said, today’s most coveted IT talent has demonstrated a willingness to connect and engage with niche recruitment specialists in the hopes of forging long-term, strategic partnerships.
