Working within an industry that is in in constant movement means it’s not easy being a tech recruiter
The world of technology is a world in perpetual motion; it never stops to take a breather, it never slows down to admire what it has achieved – what is new today could be almost antiquated by this time next year. The brief of the tech recruitment consultant is unlike any other in the field of recruitment; with the boundaries of what you need to know forever expanding the pressure is on to continuously learn the job as you go along. Think of technology and IT recruitment as the giant boulder chasing Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark: you either stay in front of it or it rolls right over you!
The wheels of progress keep turning and the world of tech keeps producing modern miracles. Consider for example the time we as a species have spent on this planet; from when Homo sapiens first appeared we had to wait about 200,000 years for the invention of the telephone and the phonograph (1876 & 1877 respectively), less than 150 years later we listen to our music on our phones – now that is progress!
Moore’s Law has been holding true now for more than half a century since his famous article for Electronics Magazine. Written in 1965, Gordon Moore predicted the coming of much of the technology that we take for granted today, such as mobile phones and personal computers, as well as wizardry that we are on the threshold of like self-driving cars. We are entering a Jetsons age that, at the time, was beyond the average person’s imagination or expectation, yet here we are.
Moore proposed that all the wonderful technological advancements would be made possible due to increases in the processing power of computers. This was, he told us, because the amount of transistors that could be placed on a silicon chip would double every year. Although he later revised this to doubling every two years, he was not far off the mark and so it remains. As processing power grows, so does what we can achieve with it.
The modern recruitment consultant has to know what they are talking about when in conversation with both clients and industry professionals looking for the next step on their career path. That means they have to keep abreast of developments within their industry and the problem with tech and IT is, as mentioned, it is constantly in flux.
The other difficulty is making sure the candidate they are introducing to a prospective employer has qualifications, skills and knowledge that are up to date; it can sour so quickly.
