Given the fact that a growing number of IT companies on the Serbian market is facing the similar problem today, and that’d be the lack of experienced Software Engineers and other IT candidates who are actively seeking for new job opportunities, we raised one question – what needs to be done in order to attract their attention? What are IT candidates generally searching for? For whom they want to work? Which benefits are they used to have? What are the key factors when they’re deciding whether they’re going to change their current job or not? Is money really a decisive factor?
On the Serbian market companies every day faced with a lack of senior programmers who in addition to many years of experience in programming using specific technologies, have business knowledge in specific industries.
I will share experience from Puzzle Software, domestic companies operating locally and internationally, and currently consists of senior developers mainly focused on PHP, Java and .NET technologies.
The fact is that the unemployment rate in Serbia is extremely high, employers often a challenge to find in the labor market professionals with certain specific qualifications. ManpowerGroup compan is engaged in providing services in the field of human resource management, daily encounters with requests from clients where they seek candidates with very specific skills, licenses, experience on certain projects and the like. These images are usually in short supply in the labor market and already employed by another employer, and companies often struggle in the market to attract and retain qualified professionals.
