This episode is part of a recruitment mini-series; where I will be focusing on various characteristics that I believe are important in recruitment. And while I believe many of these themes are universal, I will of course be focusing on software development.
In this episode I ask the question if traditional recruitment, a permanent employee, is the right thing for you?
While the first inclination maybe to advertise and recruit for a permanent employee, it may not be the right way of getting that extra help.
And with the rise of the gig-economy and a shortage of skilled software developers on the market, sometimes you may have to look at alternatives.
I'll also talk about the alternative options such as using contractors or outsourcing.
