A Java development project could fail for various reasons; it could be the deadline that draws menacingly close with the job half done or miscommunication that may delay the development process far from a customer’s requirement, whatever the reason having the right person for the right job could save your project from going down the drain.
But hiring the right person or the developer in this context is no easy task, especially when there are so many who call themselves Java developers. From the well-qualified passionate Java developers, and the autodidact developers to those who turned into Java developers due to the high pay, the task of selecting the appropriate developer could easily fool the untrained eye. But recruitment agencies are masters at seeing the invisible, should I say? Recruitment agencies can help in many ways when your company is in the process of hiring a Java developer, we’ve listed them below.
Ability to Identify Talent
Having played a pivotal part in connecting employers with candidates seeking opportunities, recruitment agencies have an uncanny ability to identify the skills and capabilities for a given job, which will help your company avoid a bad hire.
Once you’ve put down the criteria for a job, recruitment agencies will sift through their extended network to find the best possible match. Their extensive knowledge about individual segments of the job market and the talent available in different localities is something you could tap into.
Extensive Networks and Marketing
Do you often find yourselves with CVs that aren’t what you expected for the vacancy you posted? Oftentimes this is due to poor marketing. Even if you were to browse the web for a Java developer, you would probably find a Java developer’s CV rich in keywords, nothing more.
But any Java developer won’t suit to salvage your project, will he/she?
Recruitment agencies have a large pool of talent and access to those hard-to-find skills. It could be that they have salvaged a similar situation with the introduction of an expert when a project neared failure and could help you too. Recruitment agencies are said to develop a good relationship with developers and hence they could use that affinity to help you with your failing project.
Interview and Salary
The interview is a lengthy process and doesn’t ensure that the time spent is fruitful. What if you scrambled through CVs, called up referees, did thorough background research, and went through a whole process of interviewing your close match, only to find out that you are poles apart on salary. The lost time and the amount of work that could have been completed would become a sunk cost. But why risk it all when recruitment agencies take the burden of interviewing candidates upon themselves.
From carrying out the technical interviews to negotiating the salary with both parties, a recruitment agency offers a wide range of services which would help your failing project get back on track.
Using a recruitment agency gives you the top hand in manoeuvring your employees. Be it a freelancer, a full-time developer, or on a contract basis you want your employees, a recruitment agency could provide you with the person who could get up and running straight away
