"Quite and interesting site. I like it but will it translate into business usage. Time will tell. What I do think that is practical is for a candidate to do a visual resume and then compare it to his chronological one. It's a great way to check…"

Atlanta is top telework city

Last week, we blogged about the increasing importance that telecommuting plays in the decision-making process of job selection for top IT talent. We know telecommuting is becoming a requirement for many IT job seekers here in Atlanta. This is evident based not only on our experience working with IT job seekers, but in an article featured this past week in  the Atlanta Business Chronicle titled…See More

Telecommuting attracts top talent

With the shortage of top IT talent with high demand skills such as Java, .Net, PM, BA/QA, and PHP, companies are beginning to offer generous incentives and creative benefits to attract potential candidates.  While money is always a major motivator, we’re finding that telecommuting for many talented techies (in the ATL) ranks high on the list.   Here are the three common responses we hear from candidates who are considering a career move:I want more money.I want the opportunity to work…See More

IT Jobs, top IT talent and IT org charts - is there a connection?

Since the July 4th weekend is upon us, we realize this is an opportune time to relax, catch up with family and friends, enjoy life and be thankful for everything our wonderful country offers.This holiday weekend is also a good time to reflect about your professional career – where you are, where you want to go, and how you’re going to get there. If you’re an IT professional thinking about a career move, put down that novel you’re  reading on your iPad, Kindle or Nook  and take an hour to read…See More

Compel IT candidates to accept your offer by making a personal connection

Here’s a news flash – finding top IT talent is becoming increasingly difficult as budgets loosen up and employers are desperate to fill positions requiring high demand skills.  The problem seems to be that there are more jobs (believe it or not) than qualified candidates (who are actively looking for a career change).Finding top talent can be a bit challenging in today’s market, but that’s what IT recruitment agencies like…See More
