What channels do technology & telecoms recruiters use for sourcing candidates?

What channels do technology & telecoms recruiters use for sourcing candidates?

Recruiters in the Technology & Software industry rely on their Professional Social Networks and Website for finding candidates for open positions.  

Almost two thirds of in-house recruitment teams within the Technology & Telecoms industry also turn to agencies for help in filling their jobs. This can have a big impact on a company's cost of hire.

Social Media is used by 39% of respondents to source candidates and even less used are CV Databases and Specialist Job Boards.

As for sector challenges, there appears to be a split between companies where candidate scarcity is a key issue (60%) and those now struggling with high volumes of applications (40% - up significantly from just 5% in 2019).
