⚙️ More tech hires from non-academic backgrounds in 2022

⚙️ More tech hires from non-academic backgrounds in 2022

A recent survey found that companies hiring tech workers are getting more flexible in a lot of ways.

Almost 40% of people who are hiring for positions in tech this year said they regularly recruit developers from non-academic backgrounds, up significantly from 23% in 2021.

And another 41% do so at least some of the time, according to a survey from CodinGame and CoderPad. Similarly, 30% said they’d be willing to remove CVs from the hiring process entirely, focusing instead on interviews and tech assessments, with another 27% saying they’d consider doing so.

The survey comes as companies continue to struggle with planning any return to the office as the omicron-variant-driven wave of the pandemic continues to infect large numbers across the country. It was conducted from October through December last year and included 14,000 developers and recruiters from 131 countries.

That comes as almost 50% of recruiters surveyed called finding qualified candidates a challenge, as many are faced with a push to hire candidates after early pandemic hiring freezes and, in some cases, a wave of resignations. Some 65% of recruiters surveyed said they consider bias an issue in technical recruitment, which may also lead them to consider a wider candidate pool.

CodinGame creates games for developers to build their skills, and CoderPad offers a remote job interview platform allowing for collaborative programming.

Wishing You A Happy and Prosperous 2022

Wishing You A Happy and Prosperous 2022

Ringing in the New Year is a festivity celebrated around the world–always with great enthusiasm and a strong sense of anticipation for the opportunities and challenges another year brings.

2022 is likely to be filled with many new and unique opportunities the likes of which we have not seen before. skilled labor and staff shortages may persist well into the new year leaving many industries struggling to recover as demand for products and services inevitably increases.

If we’ve learned anything, it’s that change is the only constant and if we are to survive change we have to develop adaptation strategies–otherwise, we’ll be left behind wondering what just happened.

If you are looking to fill skilled labor gaps in your company, SherlockTalent is here to help you identity, screen, and place select candidates into your workforce.

Fa la la la la, la la la la! Wishing you some decked-out holiday glee!

The best part of the holiday season is remembering those who make the holidays meaningful. The SherlockTalent team wishes you all the peace and happiness this season can bring, and may it follow you throughout the coming new year.

But you’d better watch out…

‘Tis the season for holiday shopping scams. Here’s how to avoid being duped by a cyber Grinch.

It’s always a mad scramble to find the perfect gifts in time for the holidays. And like the Grinch gazing down at Whoville, cybercriminals are watching, and they’re ready to take advantage of your haste.

Whether it’s pilfering personal information or duping consumers into scams, there’s a lot more at stake than presents and a roast beast.

This year’s holiday season will likely be trickier than those of years past. COVID is forcing many people who would’ve normally gone to malls to shop online. Rather than hand-delivering gifts, they’re shipping them to family and friends.
