Headhunting in the IT industry - Targeting the best talent

Extracts from press reports:


Finding the right executive, sales expert or specialist for top positions in the IT industry is a real challenge. More often than not, precisely those candidates who are eligible for such a vacancy are already in a permanent position. This requires sensitivity and persuasiveness - skills required every day from the personnel consultants and headhunters at the IT-Personalberatung.


Our personnel consultants will conduct a targeted search for specialists for you. They not only look for candidates (male, female, and diverse) with the right professional qualifications, but also pay close attention to their soft skills. After all, the top candidates have to possess both management and leadership qualities and be able to make existential decisions for your company. Simply looking through candidate profiles and comparing them with requirement profiles is no longer enough. Our personnel coaches have many years of experience in providing candidates with objective and professional support as well as with targeted coaching throughout the entire application process. Acting as a typical recruiter is no longer successful!


Our headhunters have excellent know-how of the industry and the IT sector as well as a deep understanding of human nature to assess which candidates are ideally suited to your requirements. They use innovative analysis tools to search for top candidates, draw on our extensive network of candidates built up over 15 years, and approach potential candidates directly and with utmost discretion.


At this stage, a high degree of sensitivity is required: Secure jobs, regular working conditions and companies with a strong market position provide employees with a sense of security, which makes it all the more difficult to convince them to change jobs. That's where our experienced consultants based in Stuttgart, Munich, Heidelberg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Dortmund and Hamburg come in: When our consultants are convinced that a candidate is an excellent match for a vacancy, they are capable of showing him his ideal career path, to inspire him, and to win him over for this position.


IT - A sector with its own rules


Identifying top candidates in the field of information technology is a challenging task for recruitment professionals, because this sector has a different pace. On the one hand, it is an economic sector characterized by rapid technological advancements - each day, even more powerful and intelligent products enter the market, and executives and specialists must keep pace. On the other hand, it is a rather introverted industry, in which candidates have to be won over who not only possess specialist expertise, but also the open-mindedness required for an executive or specialist position.


The IT-Personalberatung is your partner when it comes to personnel recruitment and filling management positions or vacancies in the areas of sales, marketing or specialist divisions. Our headhunters are trained industry experts and have access to an extensive network of executives and IT specialists (e.g. from the fields of hardware, software, infrastructure, project management, consulting, development, quality assurance etc.) in Germany and beyond. This means that we will carry out the whole pre-selection process for you while you can focus entirely on your actual business.
