Recruitment is a job in itself and when it comes to recruiting Java developers it gets even more complicated and strenuous if you don’t know what you’ll be up against. You’ll find much hiding under the Java developer blanket; from the autodidact developer, the passionate developer to the ones who became developers for just the money, you will have a hard time finding who the best fit is.
Trouble filling open positions
When you’ve spared no effort to fill the position; from posting advertisements on LinkedIn, job boards, and other social media platforms and still find it hard to get the perfect candidate, it may be because you are knocking on the wrong door. Or maybe you’ve got a few applications as a response but none of them were up to standard.
You might not have been able to fill the position due to various reasons; maybe you are searching in the wrong place for a Java developer, or maybe the job description wasn’t tailored to allure the perfect Java developer. Whatever the reason that your position is vacant, you can’t afford to have a position open for too long. What do you do, then?
Reaching out to a Java recruitment agency would be the wisest thing to do. Having been in the industry for many years recruitment agencies have a huge database of candidates which they will go through if you were to consult them. The knowledge and the experience they possess are invaluable and they could even introduce a developer who salvaged a similar project that was stagnant at the same point. They have candidates ever ready at hand and thereby they could find you the perfect developer in less time which could be the difference between the completion of the project within the deadline and failure.
Your company lacks resources
It could be that the hiring managers in your company are already struggling to keep up with the duties and responsibilities assigned to them and allocate time to interview candidates. What if after sacrificing all that work, they take the time to interview candidates only to find that the candidate is poles apart from what the company wants.
What if those developers who are actively involved in your development process take time off to put the technical skills of the potential Java developer to the test and find out, he/she is not good? How could you compensate for the lost time and how can the project be completed within the deadline, and if at all it is to be completed how many more developers or extra hours are needed are some parameters you need to evaluate. But what if you could have all those extra hours to yourself and still get the best match for your open position.
Java recruitment agencies are masters at what they do, they have the necessary assignments to put the technical skills of a developer to the test. Since they get paid only when they place a perfect candidate, they will do everything possible from their end to make a perfect placement.
You have no idea where to find the candidate
Do you find yourself in a position where you almost give up? Thinking, the Java developer that you look for doesn’t exist?
Maybe you browsed the internet only to find a Java developer rich in keywords and not the developer you are looking for. If this is your scenario, reaching out to a Java recruiter could help.
Sometimes the Java developer that you are looking for may not be actively looking for a job, so obviously, your advertisement will go unnoticed. But how do you contact such developers who aren’t actively looking for jobs?
Recruitment agencies don’t just have connections online but they too have their connections functioning offline. Some agencies are said to have developed a close relationship with professionals and if you were to request their help to reach such a Java developer they could use that relationship to make a placement for your organization.
A bad hire could occur due to poor assessment of the candidate’s skills, misunderstanding of job requirements, inexperienced hiring managers or due to quick unprocessed decisions. For instance, when the deadline draws menacingly close with a good fraction of the work yet to be completed, you might find a fast coder who flutters gracefully with coding very appealing. But what if you find out that he’s made blunders quite often than not and thereby not suitable to carry on? A bad hire can backfire.
All it takes is one developer to mess up the hard work your team put in. Bad hires have had some companies paying inordinate sums of money to redeem their project heading towards failure while others have suffered losses beyond repair.
If at all you think that a recruitment agency is too costly, all you need to do is to compare and see the difference between a handpicked developer by a recruiter against a bad hire who could cost you heavily.
You pay a recruitment agency only when you’ve got the perfect candidate whereas if you make a bad hire; the time you spent on interviewing, the time you spend correcting mistakes made by the wrong candidate, a new hire to replace etc. will easily surpass what you pay a recruitment agency. Forget the money for a moment and focus on the invaluable; what about your reputation in the market and the goodwill that you built over the years; hence a recruitment agency is a wise option for your recruiting needs if your organization faces the problems outlined above.
