Turing Community Announces Panel Discussion: How Top Companies Hire Technical Talent
What makes top tech companies tick? Their world-class technical talent base, of course! These tech giants have effective processes to attract, recruit, and retain the best talent. But there’s an apparent shortage of exceptional talent, and to acquire that talent, companies are ready to pay more and offer the flexibility to work from anywhere.
However, because the talent picked is world-class, the selection ratio from the total number of applications can be remarkably small. For example, at Google, only 1 in 130-150 applicants get through—that’s 0.7 percent. The success rate at companies like Apple and Facebook is equally low.
So, what do these companies look for? How do they select the best technical talent? What processes do they have in place? How do you get your foot in the door at these companies? These questions worry developers looking for jobs at these companies.
To address these questions, Turing Community is organizing a panel discussion on “How Top Companies Hire Technical Talent” on Aug 29, 2022. In this panel discussion, tech leaders and seasoned hiring managers will reveal what top companies look for when hiring technical employees.
What is this panel discussion about?
Recruiting techniques vary across companies, making the application process feel like a moving target to developers.
Coping with these varying requirements can be exhausting on two levels. First, it is difficult to identify what each company looks for, and second, it is excruciating to prepare from scratch for each interview.
To address these issues, Turing Community has invited top recruiters and seasoned hiring managers for a panel discussion to decode what top companies want in candidates. They will give you an inside look into the recruiting and onboarding process.
