Rails v. Recruiting: How engineering is changing the way you’ll get your next job.
In an ideal world, your job search would be efficient, transparent, and flexible in scope. You would have a good idea of your value on the job market and you’d be able to leverage that to find the best opportunities available. The traditional job search methods—job boards, recruiters, and web forms—have left a lot to be desired.
Hired decided to tackle this problem with technology and innovation. They created a web application that powers the world’s first career marketplace. On Hired, software developers & DevOps engineers are introduced to over 2,000 companies in just one week. And here’s where it gets interesting—in the marketplace, the companies apply to the candidates. They’ll make introductory offers to users that provide compensation numbers upfront. The open marketplace encourages transparency and leverages the market’s demand for talent, meaning candidates get insight into their value and the most competitive offers. And the efficiencies created by this software-supported marketplace allow job seekers get more support, more services, and more opportunities.
Do you have questions about the job market for DevOps engineers or technical jobs in general? Interested in learning more about Hired and how it can help you on your job search? Join us on March 31st for a webinar and Q&A with the Hired team. And in the meantime, check out the all new DevOps.com job page, powered by our friends at Hired!
