13 sad truths
about the tech project resourcing sector

(any of these sound familiar to you?) 


1. Tech project resourcing, or recruitment, has become an impersonal numbers game

2. Recruiters are more focused in making their placement quotas rather than being concerned about candidate welfare & feedback

3. Internet job boards sell hope, but generate excessive vacancy volumes, randomness & large-scale industry frustration

4. Recruiters pay attention to successful candidates & ghost the unsuccessful

5. Recruiters rarely provide quality post-placement support to IT Contractors

6. Recruiter service quality has been compromised by intense competition & pressure on agency profits

7. Skeptical of recruiters, hiring managers engage multiple recruiters, over-hyping the job seeker market, causing rate inflation & disappointment

8. Hiring managers spend WAY too much time vetting resumes, pressuring their time management

9. Large IT Services & Big4 Consulting Firms charge premium rates for project resourcing & staff augmentation (& supply agency contractors!)

10. Job descriptions are essential for successful recruitment, yet many hiring managers provide minimal information, reducing campaign quality & success

11. The battle between employers & talent over remote & hybrid working is intensifying

12. Ageism in tech is on the rise

13. AI is frequently touted as the silver bullet for the tech project resourcing process (it's not there as yet)
