  • 12. Role of Recruiters
    • Companies are expanding their research centers in other parts of the world where there is a surplus of engineers.  Recruiting practices are changing with more emphasis of hiring foreign talent/ returning natives . 
    • Investing in people is mission-critical for domestic IT industries. Sourcing talent—particularly employees armed with “soft” management and analytical skills—will be among the toughest challenges IT producers will face in the coming years.
    • Need to be conscious about changing demographics and social attitudes of the younger generation. Focus on improved networking skills both online and offline to seek and counsel “passive job seekers”
    • Relationship management vs transaction management. Encourage candidates to take responsibility for their own career development.
