HOLMDEL, N.J. (October 8, 2019) – iCIMS, Inc., the market leader for cloud-based talent acquisition software solutions, analyzed 25 million technology applicants representing a broad swath of the U.S. economy from Jan. 1, 2016, to May 31, 2019, and found that companies face a daunting technology talent deficit, specifically:
“To mitigate the chronic shortage, employers should look for tech talent within their own ranks and invest in professional development programs. Training the help desk team for specialized roles is a natural place to start,” says Josh Wright, iCIMS’ chief economist. He continues, “To attract more qualified candidates, creating and nurturing pools of tech talent is indispensable, as is implementing a recruitment marketing program optimized to meet candidates where they are: mobile phones, Google searches, and the like – the entire digital dashboard of today’s consumer.”
