IT Recruiting & Staffing Tips That Fill Empty Seats

Tired of seeing empty chairs where IT team members should be? Having been helping business fill these seats and helping my clients get IT done over the last 20 years, I get it. The IT talent gap is larger than ever and the need for companies to innovate is crucial. In this article I'll share some thoughts on how to shore up your own IT staffing and get those chairs filled.

IT Staffing Challenges in the Cincinnati Corridor

The challenge of getting quality candidates in and around Cincinnati and Dayton is not unique to the area. We all need more candidate options, lower salaries, and higher technical experience. The talent gap is real, and it's impacting us all. Acknowledging that there is an ever-widening gap between what American enterprise needs in IT talent and what is available is the first step in bridging it.

Some tips on bridging your own company's IT talent gap: 

  •  Get involved with regional schools, educational institutions, and technical schools. Get your company's name known among the faculty and students.
  •  Make retraining and continuing education a part of a long term retainment strategy. Avoid the pitfalls of today's work force where the average worker has over 12 jobs in the course of their first 30 years in the workforce.
  • Open your company up to retirees, as well as older and wiser employees. These IT workers can be more reliable, better experienced, and are less likely to job jump.

Connect with Local IT Education Initiatives

Developing high profile tech companies is a hot topic across the country. This has prompted entrepreneurs and business development organizations to push for greater IT vocation development through programming classes and coding boot camps. Here's a few local organizations that are prompting a new way of thinking for you and your company's IT staffing needs:
