I have been specializing in IT Recruitment for the past few years. It has been a very interesting and challenging journey, which allowed me to meet many professionals at various stages of their careers. In the past few years, I noticed that recruitment for IT professionals has changed. Our clients were no longer interested only in IT skills and the technical abilities of our candidates, but also their personalities and social skills (particularly for client facing positions).
This, I realized, presented a problem for some of my technically minded candidates. Although they fulfilled all the technical requirements and flew through the IT interview, they often failed the HR interview. From a personal point of view, this was very frustrating as many candidate and client efforts were wasted due to this fact.
