By Anthony K

Years back, many people came out to apply for open vacancies. As of now, the reverse is true. Most hirers are dealing with the problem of finding fewer employees to fill in the available jobs. Most tech professionals are hanging their boots on the failure of companies to accept flexible working conditions and mistreatment during the pandemic.

Albeit there has been an increase in hiring rates over the past months, hiring agencies and personnel managers cannot find suitable candidates. Millions reportedly left their jobs during the Great Resignation. Regrettably, people do not seem enticed enough to replace them, making this period the most brutal environment for employers.

As per a recent survey, there seems to be debate concerning workers that favor fully remote jobs against those who prefer brick and mortar for operations. In truth, a significant number of employees are open to both options. Sadly, at this moment, there are no clear-cut guidelines as to what features a flexible arrangement should include.

Software developers are among the most hard-hit professions. According to hiring experts, acquiring competent developers remains the most significant recruitment challenge. In addition, the popularity of affluent Silicon Valley tech firms continues to make tech employment for small and medium businesses even harder.

Owing to constant empty roles, some companies have had to resort to internal recruitment strategies, including upskilling available staff to fill these positions. Because of virtual interviews and the vast number of jobs available, candidates are discovering that being selective is no longer as time-consuming or unpleasant as before the pandemic.
