How do you make hiring less painful

Traditional hiring

If you decided to hire developers in Viet Nam market, there are several ways you can go about it.

In Viet Nam, when you would like to hire a talent developer. If you have connections in the Vietnam IT industry, the easiest way is to ask for recommendations or post a classical job offer in ad listings such as IT viet, VN work or job platform like Recruitery.Then You can assess the candidates in short interviews, face to face or via messages/phone calls. This is a traditional way to hire new software engineers. But We do not make sure that these way can fill your company position need in the short term, maybe it takes at least 6 months.

Or you need to have a strong technical recruiter to handle request from you.However, the trully technical recruiter or someone like that in Viet Nam is quite rare. Most of them usually work for Vietnamese corporation and the higher salary of them is the most issue with start up company like you.

In addition, you could use headhunters to find talent developer. However, the services fees is usually from 1 to 2 months salary of engineer for one case hiring succeed.And you will have some risk is when headhunter charged their services fees, the engineers out.

What are the pros of traditional hiring practices? If the new developers is recommended by someone you trust or comes from professional circles that are familiar to you, you have a certain level of assurance that they will do a good job. Knowing that other companies have worked with them or that their clients have had a good experience with their engineering work can be helpful to know that you are hiring a qualified developer. This way of hiring software developers also allows you to vet the candidate and communicate regularly with them.

Hiring from social network

Another way to hire developers is to utilize the database of social networks. Being a professional social network, LinkedIn is one of the companies that is often the first choice when it comes to finding talent. LinkedIn is a hub for professionals with a variety of backgrounds and qualifications and provides a large amount of data to choose from. A perk of sites like these is that you have the means to filter applicants according to your desired specifications.

Specifications may include qualifications, skills, education, experience, recommendations, and even rates. Hourly rates of software developers depend on all of these factors. You can search for the right candidates who are open to new job opportunities.

You can do a similar thing on a site like Facebook. There are plenty of Facebook groups, but you should look for the ones with a large number of members and serious administrator teams. These groups usually have strict rules for hiring post and comunication. While these groups don’t offer advanced search features compared to a database like LinkedIn.

Just like traditional hiring, looking for applicants on Facebook, and LinkedIn has its limitations. You cannot always vet the candidates properly, and there isn’t much protection for either of you if you encounter problems. Furthermore, it is difficult to check whether the applicants are real or actually have the engineering skills that they say that they have.
