578 views

Published on

Every type of business now employs tech talent. The challenge for employers is not only finding enough candidates, but also winning out over the competition who is recruiting from the same, limited pool. Hear from Indeed Economist Mariano Mamertino as he reveals key insights on the tech job market across Europe and how tech talent searches for jobs today. Mariano will share new research from the Indeed Hiring Lab, a global research institute committed to advancing the knowledge of human resource and talent management professionals worldwide.

More people find jobs on Indeed than anywhere else. Indeed is the #1 job site in the world and allows job seekers to search millions of jobs on the web or mobile in over 50 countries and 28 languages. 180 million people each month search for jobs, post resumes and research companies on Indeed, and Indeed is the #1 source of external hires for thousands of companies.
